I would go with the battery suggestion too. Pretty hard to break teeth off of a starter gear but not impossible I suppose. As Planalp suggested when you get a new battery, hook a car battery up to it with booster cables.
As to kick starting it. If it was a properly running bike I would think that it would go but, a bike as you describe, that has been sitting, is going to need a little love before it gets going. I suspect once you get it firing that you may have some carb issues.
