Default old 2-stroke streetbike overhaul

Does anybody know of anybody who works on vintage 2-strokes? Local or otherwise.

I have a 1976 Yamaha RD400. Its a twin cyl 2-stroke. I have not yet split the cases, but know it needs crank bearings. I think that's all internally that it needs. 1 cylinder appears to be scored; not sure if its salvageable or not.

I can re-do it myself, I'm confident of that. But I'm wondering if by the time I buy the parts to do it myself, I can have it done by a "professional" who has better access to parts and is going to get it running right instead of me playing with it and hoping for the best. Know what I mean?

Any leads also appreciated. Thanks, Ryan
