Welding and reinforcing 2006 BMW Roadster bracket

Was out riding today and the lower bracket on my factory tall BMW shield mount broke off right at the post where it is the thinnest.

This is bad design as this is the point where the load on that member is going to be the highest. This bracket appears to be heavily painted steel as I tested it with a magnet and it definitely stuck to it, suggesting it is not stainless steel.

I want to both repair it and strengthen it. Has anyone dealt with this and how did you do that?

You do realize that there are some "stainless steels" that are magnetic.
