Windshield lower arm replacement

Last Sunday I hit a major pot hole (I though I dented my front rim)

I realized this morning that one of the lower support arms of my windshield is broken.
I'm looking for a replacement but Beemer Boneyard is out of stock on this item

Anybody knows where I can get some stainless steel ones?

If you can park it, and not turn around to admire it before walking away, you bought the wrong one.

304 maybe pretty and will not rust but is not that strong..

Those anybody makes the links out of Cold forged blanks instead of the pot cast bmw makes them from...!?

FYI: the wall thickness require to fit and not even close to the structure requires impose by the force of the wind in such a big screen

https://www.beemerboneyard.com/r12rtshldarms.html - not stainless but much stronger than the OEM items.
