Back home. Indeed a broken shaft bond is now confirmed !! Just need to get it out. Now the question is: where should I get it rebuilt ? Any recommendations appreciated.

Just wanted to thank everyone again for helping me with this. Just took the bike around the block after finally reinstalling the muffler with new hardware - the last step in my driveshaft replacement - bike felt like its old self again - awesome !
Ended up buying a used driveshaft in great shape from the PartsHaus in LA.
All in all learned tons about my bike and how to do these repairs - it took me a long time but was really worth it. You were all correct - a great DYI opportunity. Thanks again for the encouragements and input !!!!
