1980 ke175 top end parts

Hello everyone i have the above mentioned bike and lost the top piston ring while riding, long story short had a nice long push walk home. I really love the bike but see parts are virtually impossible to find. In my repair manaul it says the 1980 model cannot be bored cause of some coating in the cylinder my luck. Anyways the the piston broke at the bottom on the intake side, and the busted ring caused deep gauges in the piston also. The cylinder wall suffered a little also but i believe Is still usable. Has anyone found a suitable replacement piston and rings for a 1980 ke175 any help would b greatly appreciated thx

Wesco has 63.75mm piston for a decent price (.25mm over oem) or u can find 63.50 on eBay but very pricey, good luck!
