One of those pics looks like you let all the smoke out.  Good luck getting it back in.

That smoke was from non-bike-related sources. :P

At least the wheels are in good condition.

Got a close-up of the case damage and it looks like the battery box has a broken tab, too.

Going to get the crankcase welded? There's 2 sets on ebay, one with a chunk missing in what looks to be the same spot as yours.

And this one. Pretty pricey but looks to be in good condition
