so your saying it only smokes on start up and when its cold? It could be valve seals or rings being worn. its not to bad of a job, but if you have never done this type of work a manual will help you through the process. Price wise, your looking at around $250. this include a new pistion kit, top end gks kit and a bore job. If you do decide to do the upper end, installing a new timing wouldn't be a bad idea to do also. another $60 for a DID chain and about $20 for a clutch cover gks.

I didn't know it had been sitting up, the rings might have been stuck or the bad fuel causing it to smoke. Run it for while and see what she does. If the smoke was black, that means carb issues, since you have already cleaned it, its possible the carb was loading up with the old gas and causing it to smoke. Blue smoke is valve or rings problems.
