Pissed Brake footpeg

I'd like to share this with you guys, maybe someone can show me a way forward. Anyway I took all the oegs and carrier to have them powder coated cause the where really looking bad. The guy blasted them and found out that tge brake footpeg was previously badly cracked, badly welded and then smoothed with hard metal!! Obviously when blasted all of this came out. I checked for a second hand part and it seems like no one has one!!!
Has some one ever welded them(they are aluminium right) or does anyone know where i can get a decent second hand?

Beemerboneyard.com occasionally gets parts like this, don't trust the website to be up-to-date, call or send an email to find out if they've got the part. They ship all over the world, so I doubt your location will be much trouble.

If the Boneyard doesn't have what you need, go to a marina that does boat repair, someone there may be able to do a better job than the first welder did. Aluminum can be a tricky material to weld. If its done wrong, the repaired part will be weaker than it was before.

Depending on where the break is, a set of Touratech Hard Parts may be part of a permanent solution (you should probably have them anyway, the transmission mounts are a known weak point, and a set of reinforcing plates is much cheaper than having the transmission welded).
