Almost certainly it has been run very low on oil to do that kind of damage
That, or someone has used silicon gasket on a mating surface and a bit has got in the system and blocked an oilway
You really are going to have to check the crank bearings which means a complete strip down
My gut feeling is that this is going to be a very expensive exercise even if the crank is OK as cams and followers cost lost of ££££££ ie £180 for a camshaft and £70 each for rocker arms
It wasn`t parked up unloved for 8 years for no reason!
Quite often Italian imports are brought in and all the bits sold as it is so difficult now to register with the DVLA so you may well pick up a good low mileage engine
Be warned....... the brakes on this bike are so criminally inefficient as to be downright dangerous.
