12 R1 Bent Forks, Is This Fixable?

Crashed recently, bike slide into a guard rail at 50 mph, front tire took the hit, bent rim, bent radiator, and forks seem obviously bent cause the forks don’t want to compress down. Was just wondering can I get a shop to straighten them? Or just buy a new set for $900?

Sorry about the bent forks, but there’s no bending them back. The inner tube and outter tube won’t run together in the seal correctly and most likely leak all the oil out all the time
