My '74 Roadsters left (battery) side cover finally gave in to the years of vibration and the spot welds failed at the bracket. Anyone have any ideas on a temporary repair that would get me through what is left of the riding season?
Thanks

drill a couple of small holes thru both pieces and fill them with bolts and nuts or pop rivets.
pop rivets hold the bracket to the factory fiberglass side covers

Some small washers between the pop rivet and sheet metal will make for a permanent repair. Not too obtrusive, either.
