L1 600 aftermath of the crash

Hello friends!
Long story short I was in a crash last week and I am slowly trying to figure out where to start with the process of putting my bike together. As far as I can tell the biggest(costly) damage to it are the front cowl and side larger fairing, the radiator’s neck right beneath the cap is also busted (I think it can get welded which would cut the cost for a new one), left handlebar is also busted.
The thing that got me worried the most however are some chips on the frame as you can see on a couple of the photos I’ve uploaded. I don’t think they are a result of the crash however.. what do you guys think are those chips a big deal and a possible issue further down the line? I started the bike after the accident and it worked perfectly, however white smoke was coming out of the exhaust( probably coolant leakage in the ignition chamber). I would also appreciate some recommendations on where and what parts I can get to start putting the bike together - I know it all comes down to how much money I am willing to spend, but I’d like to know what my options are since I’ve never been in such a situation. Thanks!

P.S. I know the forks are from a 750, the bike has some history.

^^^ +1 on that. Also, don't skimp with repairs. A new radiator is going to be required. But measure the frame first.
