frame repair

It's time to start fixing my bike or get another one. I really want to fix the one i got. the smashed rear rim has me concerned. Other than that its plastic. I talked to my local mechanic and he said he doesn't think it can be done, but he's not sure.Should i ask my local Honda dealer or forget the old one and spend my money on a new bike(of course another rc51)!

Is it your frame or wheel (or both) that are bent?
If it's your frame, you can probably find one online from someone who's parting their bike out. Or there are frame straightening companies as well.
Likewise for wheel repair. There are at least two companies that specialize in wheel repair.
