2008 Jamis Aurora in trash

My wife saw this 2008 Jamis Aurora in the trash last week and my son fished it out of the dumpster and brought it home for me.

 

A 2008 Jamis Aurora (CrMo steel frame and fork) with maybe 10 miles on it. A quick look shows that the only thing really wrong with it is the ruined fork. The front wheel axle is also shot, but otherwise the rim looks okay -- no obvious wobbles or warpage.

 

Garage mishap, perhaps?

 

Jamis markets this as a touring bike. Too bad it's not my size: 47 cm makes this a tiny frame, which is also why it has the sloping top tube (larger size Auroras have a more traditional diamond frame with horizontal top tube). I think it would fit my wife. I may also give it away.
