Default I'm and idiot - Front Fender help

Last night I completely destroyed the front fender on Morticia (2016 Cross Country 8-Ball) in a stupid move in my garage. Long story best told over a few beverages but the short of it is that I need to replace my front fender. It is damaged beyond repair.

Here are what I think my alternatives are:
- Buy a NEW fender from retailers that still have them in stock ~$600 (that I don't have)
- Patiently wait and watch fleaBay for a perfect condition black Cross Bike front fender (I am not that patent and it still is pricey)
- Find someone who did a "big wheel" upgrade on their bike and see if they will sell me the old fender at a reasonable price.
- Look for another black fender that will bolt in place on the stock front wheel.
- Run with the damaged fender risking ridicule from fellow riders (it does not hit the tire)
- Run without a front fender at all making a huge mess of Morticia when riding.

Are there any other ideas that the great brains here have?

Any help would be much appreciated!!!

Could you go to a HD website, or E-bay China and find a cheap wrap-front-fender ?

A good body shop guy might be able to pound it back in shape and repaint it.

On FB, go to Victory Motorcycle buy sell and trade. There's this one and two other where Vic goodies are sold and I often see front fenders. Good luck after having bad luck.

Broggyr is right! There is one on Facebook, Victory Buy, Sell and trade, in sued white for $180. I bet if you posted on that site, you could find one in black. Many have gone to a bigger wheel.

I have the original front fender off of my cross bike in the basement .. gloss black .. it is in perfect shape but has some overspray from a spray can that I did in the same room as it that wax/clay bar could easily remove. If you're interested, I'll work on cleaning it up for you. Can probably do $150 shipped depending on what the shipping cost is. I'd also have to find a box lol.
