Unhappy Help with post crash rebuild

I'm trying to find out where I can get parts to fix the rear end of my '07 Wee after some genius hit it while it was parked on the street. Buying everything from the dealer seems prohibitive, if I could find a salvage bike to get parts or a someone who collects these things would be ideal. I'm in Los Angeles, but that may not matter. The damage doesn't actually look terrible so far, I haven't finished pulling everything off. I had aluminum Happy Trails bags on and they took a lot of the force and mangled the rack, but I don't think the frame was hit. It's just the tail section and maybe some pegs or small stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

Ebay and right here at Stromtrooper are the best places I have found for used parts. You can alway post a "wanted to buy" thread to find specific parts.

Definitely eBay and here if you can fix the bike gradually. Otherwise, you are probably stuck with new parts either through your dealer or some other outlet.

If eBay and this forum fails you, Oneida Suzuki has OEM parts at the best discount prices I could find.
