Default Plz help me restore her

Ive been without a bike for two months my last one's engine went out and I've been saving up but have had problems with having to buy tools for work and what not, i found this bike on craigs going for 2500 was made into a stunt bike, i got to it and found it was not worth it, seller was moving state and wanted it gone so i got it for 1100 i have plans to restore it but don't got a lot of time due to work these are the things i know that are wrong with it other than the pure ugliness of it

no headlights(original don't know where connections are?

fixed the brake lights already

turn signals don't work light just stays on

previous owner installed a jumper wire on fuel relay to keep it goin when wheeling

mph is off for some reason i think about 20

i wanna say all gears work but can probably only reach 130 before i start redzoning

where should i start?

i think I've found headlights but there no power to them I've checked with my tester( i think might be missing its relay found a 4 prong connector but nothing attached to it, it had power ?? and another relay seems burned? also some wire were spliced but connected to nothing i can't figure what there for.. everything was wrapped in electrical tape

look at pics plz

poor f4i, first off get yourself a workshop manual with a good wiring diagram and a cheap multi meter to test all that spaghetti, then you can find out what goes where and whats connected to what, check the sprocket sizes as she was a stunter I would imagine she is not on stock gearing,
