The bad news --- that fuel pump I found leaks. However I am quite content that I have gotten this far without spending a dime as I await the check from the insurance company.

Congrats on making such quick progress. It's good that the damage appears to have been limited and will be fairly easy to put right.

Well it runs. Now all you have to do is find replacements for all the damaged parts. Many mechanical parts are still available on bikebandit.com, cheapcycleparts.com and other online sites.
