Sounds like a total loss...sell the parts on ebay and then use that money to go towards getting another bike. I wouldn't waste time and money trying to salvage something that needs all of that.

On Headshake:(AKA Tankslapper)
The headshake is what happens when the user puts too much input to the bars and the front wheel isn't lined up with the direction the bike is going. It causes the wheel to kick back at you. Fighting it only makes it worse. It happens so fast that most people that have not had the experience to go down. I have had some in the past. I always ride with my hands loose on the bars. It makes a huge difference. It is all about relaxing. Most people induce the headshake when accellerating hard and then backing off quick.
Here is a video of a tankslapper---> http://www.joe250.com/motorcycles/ride/Tankslapper2.wmv

I've had a copy of that tankslapper video on my pc for years now. I always thought it was a mechanical prob, like the front wheel coming loose, or something with the forks....Crazy how a bike can become that unstable from rider error.

More importantly, how do you recover from Head shake aka Tank slap if it happends???
