Sounds like he needs fork tubes at the very least, maybe a full set of forks. We can rebuild them. Or possibly he needs a "doner" bike? It sounds like the engine is OK except for the filter getting broken off. Dave, when you have time, can you confirm that the mounting threads and mounting surface are in good shape for that filter?

Don't know you mate, but sounds like you have been through hell and back.
Best wishes for your recovery. Nice to see some of the others on here offering to give hands on help. A huge thumbs up to them.

If your legal system (I won't say justice) is the same as our legal system, it's always no better than a coin toss.

Amen to that, and I’ll add that after my get off 2 years ago And being winter I had some luxury where I didn’t have pressure to accept the first, low ball, offer. And as the engine, frame and forks were good I have a regular title, not salvage.
