Tupperware repair

My last post was right after I crashed my 2000 LTC asking for advise on whether to sell or repair--I have decided to repair instead of buying a new bike as the one I have is paid for and only has 5100 miles. I have searched this site for info on how to repair tupperware cracks/tears and have come up empty handed. I ordered a plastic welder with recommended supplies from dealer and am going to under take the fix, may have to order new tupperware afterwards but what the heck, fixing is more fun and may even learn something. Need a new front fairing bracket plus both side tip over brackets and associated hardware/plastic if anyone has it available.
Handlebars came today from beemerboneyard ($100) and looks like I may have to go to BMW dealer to order rest of needed parts ie clutch & brake handles, right foot peg panel,etc. Anyone with parts please reply.
Thanks

Sonny

Does not have online ordering, but give Fred a call.

I just got some parts for my 1999 rebuild from him. He's a great guy.

I'm doing a complete rebuild of a rollover.

What I like best so far:

Recovered the speaker covers. The new material and a french stitch give the pieces a much richer look than the old molded vinyl cover. They were heck getting on though. Really had to wrestle to get the holes relined up since the material took a bit more space.

Half the time I can't remember how to post a message here, so posting pics is going to be a stretch. I am taking digitals of process and will post them when complete. Today I took the front fairing bracket off, 'twas a major operation.
