Don't want to give you , but think if you had kept up on maintenance this might not have happened. Sounds like you had a "loose chain".

Push it home and start tearing stuff down yourself, doesn't make any sense to pay someone else to do something you could do.

Right now, you just need to get to the front sprocket and make sure it hasn't cracked the case or bent the shaft. Best way to free stuck chain front the front sprocket area is to pull the swing arm off a little.
