So my daughter decided to bury some bricks in the walkway to my backyard today. So I was riding my bike into the back yard and all of a sudden the front of my bike popped up and I heard a loud crack. I shut the bike down, drop the kick stand and look at the damage. The brick (1"x12"x24") broke in 1/2 and was lodged between the ground and my exhaust propping the front wheel about an inch off the floor. I was like holy ****! So I rocked the bike off and pushed it to the back yard. I am really pissed right now. **** that just sucked. I also had a mint condition lower that I was using to make a custom lower. That just means that I need to hurry and get it done sooner than later.

Although tomorrow morning I am going to wake up early and try and fiberglass the lower back into shape and I'll fix it up over the weekend hopefully

You could also try plastic welding it back on. The welder looks and works like a soldering iron. You melt plastic rod material and pieces back together.

Don't use fiberglass. Either weld it or use ABS cement. And even if you're not going to use it, somebody will give you at least $50 for it.

If that piece is the only thing that is broken on the lower, you could clean it up with a jigsaw and add some black painted mesh in the center that would cover it up and still look decent.

I would try cutting the where the inside lip of the lower and bolting the mesh on.

You could just remove the lower and ride it like that. I plan on doing it when I get back home.
