Default My Victory!

This is a pic of the V92 I just recently bought. I picked it up for practically nothing knowing there was a lot wrong with it. When I picked it up, the battery was dead, but he told me the starter was toast anyway. In his words "He blew the rear piston" (whatever that means) because the back jug was knocking. Knowing worst case scenario I could put another engine in it, I brought it home.
I am going to keep this thread up I hope and maybe y'all can check up on me and my progress. I am not a motorcycle mechanic, but I am an aviation mechanic, so even though I am not very familiar with these bikes, I know my way around a toolbox. I am open to all suggestions and advice!

First thing, I put the charger on the battery, and got MFD to display. It was showing 11.8 volts, and I am wondering if that could be the starter issue. I have heard that the starter relay won't work if the voltage is too low.
First order of business is getting a battery in the next week or so. I also noticed that the main frame ground behind and below the battery box is kinda suspect. The frame is powder coated, and the coat extends underneath the grounds. That is high on the list of things to check out as soon as it gets warm enough outside.
Here is another pic:

Default Turn over?

Even if you do not have a battery or money for a possible bad starter you can see if the engine will turn over. I know your a aircraft mechanic. But anyhow, pull the plugs, put it into gear and turn the back wheel. Will the wheel turn the engine over? You should be able to turn the back wheel by hand or roll the bike and get the engine to turn over, if not....... More fun times ahead, now why will it not turn over, possible tear down time. Good luck let us know what you figure out.

if the frame is power coated you can bet he didn't scrap any paint away to make a good grounds.
You can pick up a 40 amp breaker at NAPA p/n 782-3116 think there 6 bucks.

Yeah, the engine does turn over with it in gear and rolling. I havent pulled the plugs yet, that is also high on the priority list. I was going to bore scope it while I have the plugs out and do a leakdown check on the cylinders at the same time.
