Hello,

Thanks to Contevita for posting pics of my Beautiful repair of my Parabellum shield off dr650, also pictured.
Clean crack do to pilot error. Wanted it to be strong. like a weld, stronger than the material. Edges of 16 ga, 6" steel are very sharp as you can see. Won't break in this spot again. Bending the steel both ways to the contour of the shield is tricky. Neighbors on Harleys won't ride unless I ride something else.
Kind of gives off that macho Bobber look, you think?
