Finished stripping the bike to the bare frame last week. Took a crap load of pics of the wiring harness etc so I don't have to rely on my alcohol addled memory to get it all back together.

The frame appears to be straight, no bending of the gusset plates supporting the steering head, no flaked paint anywhere. The steering stop is sheered off, and the upper stamped steel triple clamp is bent.
Going to take apart the forks and check the tubes for straightness.
Found a place that does the welding for the Honda Leadwing recalls, so I figure they know what they are doing. They have the frame right now to weld the steering stop back on.
Next is replacing spokes in the front wheel.
