Very important part for a 1979 Triumph Bonneville T140V

Dear all,

My first post. You all seem very informative, and I really, really need help with this! And yes I *did* attempt find it out on my own, but since I know *nothing* about motorcycles...

My main character owns a 1979 Triumph Bonneville T140V motorcycle, which he has just crashed into a car. He is not badly hurt, but I need the bike to be hurt enough that it will be written off. However, since I know nothing about bikes, I don't know what should be damaged so that my hero can walk away from the crash (almost...) but the bike cannot be ridden again...

EDIT FOR CLARITY - The story takes place in 2006 Toronto and the bike must be written-off by the insurance company so that the MC ends up stuck in Toronto with no transportation. So I'm looking for a part on this classic bike that - if it breaks - cannot be replaced for love nor money, or would have to be custom-made or something that would make it so ridiculously expensive that no insurance company in the world would bother.

Thanks so much for your help!
