Your going to spend a lot of money repairing it.
Will the bike come with a salvage title? If so might be hard to get insurance.
If it comes with salvage title and you get it street legal can you get a clean title.

The outer faring is $1143.99 and you have to hope nothing ells is bad.
Here is Vic's site to wards the bottom in parts catalog you can find part numbers there. With part numbers go to a local dealers web site and look up OEM parts finder and you can get prices.
You'll search a long time to find used parts.

thanks visionjohnny.
in my humble opinion the spare parts of victory are way over priced. the bike is good quality no doubt but if you want something else, polaris knows their way to your pocket (and that is way deep). thanks for the answer

where is the damage on the bike in the rear or up front?
Look at the frame from be hind and see if it looks straight.
Look at the wheels to see if there bent. If there is oil under the bike run away from it. cases could be cracked.
When you have seen the bike then look for parts to see what they coast.
Don't get me wrong but over there you could be farther a head if you bought a running bike cause what you spend to fix this one might be the same price.
photos would be great

so it looks like inner and outer faring front fender mirror crash bar and lower and floor borad.

I'm thinking frame is ok I wounder what he hit.

Where do you find parts over there. Maybe a body shop could fix the outer faring and crash bar on ebay
