What did the adjuster see that made him total it??? Bent frame???

Part it out, then get a new ride.
^^ Without a second thought. ^^

Did the cage owner not have insurance?

Where/how did you land after the wreck so not to get hurt?

First, it isn't a 2000, it would be a 2001 at the earliest. And if the insurance company totaled it, since it is only worth around $2K, there has to be a major problem. Do not ride, get rid of it.

Be good

That is the advice I was gonna give also. you want to live and I don't want to be near if you crash due to mechanical problem you didn't see. pay a few bucks and get it checked.

I agree
I t-boned a chevy at about 25mph on my '04, totaled it also. The front fender shot, front rim shot, headlight, crash bar, but the main reason was neck was bent!.
I stripped off add-ons before the adjuster came and let them total it.
