I have one of those racks. I think it can be repaired by using a smaller diameter tube inside, and welding it. It won't look that great, and the cost of getting it rechromed would be absurd. I've had a few things crack on these bikes. I've been through three license plates. Amost certainly caused by metal fatigue, which in turn was caused by vibration, even though the Vulcan 750 is a fairly smooth bike. Could be that high frequency vibrations are more likely to cause that type of damage than low frequency, ala Harley. Yes, Vulcan 750s are getting harder and harder to find parts for, which has me a bit concerned.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
