Rebuilding 749 motor economical?

I'm considering making an offer on a clean 749 track bike with a motor issue. The owner over-revved it going into a tight right-hander at a track day in 2014 and hasn't run it since. It wasn't smoking, but making a pinging\knocking noise (two different things to me) and he suspects valve train issues. I would lean more towards a spun con-rod bearing but at this point it's all speculation. Figuring a bottom end issue is the worst case scenario, would it be worth rebuilding the motor or just getting a working used unit? Asking so as to factor into my offer.
