Unfortuantely, it seems as if the engine might be frozen. If the solenoid is clicking, you don't have to worry about any bypasses. I would put a good spray of penetrating oil in the cylinder, Kroil or even WD40, then try again after it sits overnight. Try it first with the sparkplug removed so it doesn't have to fight compression. Then try the push start. Be sure to do the bump start in second or third gear.
There's a bunch of knowledgeable guys here. Someone will come along soon with more and probably better advice.
edit - I just went back and read your first post where you said it "needed a starter". I'm assuming that's what the seller told you. If the engine's seized and it's not the starter, you may want to give it back to him.
more edit - pull the sparkplug and push the bike with it in gear and see if the engine will turn. Then you know if the engine is seized or not.
