Restore of a 2005-2014 BMW R1200RT Swinging Arm.

The left piece broke a few years ago.
Now the right piece had the same problem.
Maybe it's because of the bigger windshield I installed a few years ago. Who knows.
The new price is only a 50 € but for fun I tried to restore it in the hope that it would be stronger than the original. The material is a kind of zamak which cannot be glued.
