The best way to do this is start a build thread and take a bunch of pictures of what you have and ask your questions there to keep them all in one place.

You can buy a GY6 for $350 or something from a number of places. Just search google. Some vendors were mentioned in another one of your threads.

New is nice but with some patience and negotiating you can often find a used running gy6 donor scooter complete for $200-$400. If it's your first build you might not want to sink too much into it until you get a little hands-on experience. With a donor you'll get wheels, brakes, engine/carb, exhaust, wiring, etc- all stuff you can reuse or hack up until you want to upgrade or replace it.

If you are able to fix one up that's not running you can find one even cheaper. People aren't willing to spend $80/hr to fix a scooter that cost them $1000 new, and sometimes just a simple carb cleaning will get a "dead" scooter with less than 1000 miles on it running again.
