Trek 1500 SL (2004) (Damaged)

I purchased this used bicycle, pretty much as you can see it in the pics, except I swapped the no-name, stripped front-bolt thread (!) stem it came with, with a new Ritchey 100mm 1-1/8" (probably fake) Trail stem. I only had the chance to ride this bike twice, for less than 100km, before i was involved in a head-on collision with a car and the frame was destroyed. I don't remember anything about the accident as I was unconscious for 40 mins, and unable to ride for 5 weeks, but fortunately, no broken bones. Interestingly enough, the front Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheel survived the impact and didn't even lose air. The fork also appears to be fine, but i wouldn't ride on it, for obvious reasons. The previous, unknown owners upgraded this bike to a Tiagra 4600 10 speed groupset, a top-of-the-line (for its time) Mavic wheelset, a better seatpost and Selle Italia saddle, but, oddly enough, when i purchased the bike it had 9-speed 105 Shimano shifters / levers on it.. maybe the bike was stolen at some point and some of its parts were swapped to be sold? It is hard to tell.
