krauser frame mounting parts, 77r100rs
Below is a picture of my krauser mounting assembly. The top piece, the attaching point just behind the rear tail light, is badly rusted and I want to replace it. The fiche on A&S does not show this type of mounting system it only shows what I believe to be the more common system, which is similar, but has a bracket coming off the bottom and attaches to the frame, just behind the passenger foot peg, but no mounting piece like I need. Does anyone have a suggestion where I can locate such a part new or used? There is a complete assembly on ebay for $270, but I don't want to buy the whole thing. Also, the finish on the assembly seems to be a coating of some sort. Any suggestions about what this is and where replacement coating can be found would also be appreciated.
