• Given the amount of damaged you've detailed above it will be more economic for an insurer to write the bike off and you should push for that. Once that's been agreed the old bike becomes the property of the insurance company, that's just a pain in the arse to them and they will happily agree a nominal value for you to buy the bike back and you can fix it up as needed.
