You could have it welded back in place but you would have to be pretty precise as to the angle since it operates the rear brake master cylinder. Any variance in the angle could impact brake performance.
I had the same problem but bit the bullet and bought a new one from HD.

Fix 'um. Takes about 90 minutes and less than $10 in new tubing. A spare frame helps too.

That's the left frame rail. Positioning is not as critical as the right one because of the rear brake master cylinder.
Also, I envy your access to welding equipment and your ability to be able to use it. Most of us have not mastered that art.

Yeah, I know it is the left side. I couldn't find the pictures of the right side that were fixed too. I felt that showing some pictures of how easy it really is to fix these would help some others to do the same.

Oh I forgot, you also really don't need a fancy garage or work space too. They are nice to have but, I do all my repair work in the parking lot of the apartment building that I live in.

Just trying to clarify the issue for the folks that don't know their left from their right.
I couldn't do that kind of work even with a fancy garage.

I just had one installed at a HD dealer. They are still in the system at 3-4 hundred., I'd have to check my invoice. I found one for 200 but decided against it as I didn't want.to take a chance on getting a tweaked.frame part
