I believe the bolt is there to keep the tube protecter in place. As for the plastics. Nice job! You could just get some graphics off Motosport Outlet or Rocky Mountain ATV that fade from blue to white to bring the colors together.

The bolt is a rim lock it locks the tire to the rim and the extra hole is for a second rim lock

EDIT::The extra hole needs a plug not a spoke unless there's an extra hole on the hub then you will need a spoke.

I would buy another spoke get the OE replacement i wouldn't mix aftermarket and oem spokes. Unless you want to put a second rim lock on you should plug the hole it keeps mud and water and such out. I think they're called mudplugs but I can't remember exactly where I got mine it was at a dealership though.

I'm in the same boat with my buggy, I have spent hundreds on parts and it would have been cheaper to by something else. I view it as a learning experience, which makes it worth while to me. I need to buy a few more misc parts and then I can put the engine back together. Then I need another $150 in parts if I want to test it....

If you kept the parts organized, re-assembly should be pretty easy, especially since it's a single cylinder 2 stroke.
