Gabe some cast parts can be welded and some can't. If you know of a good welder and I mean good get his opinion. Is the part in question ferrous or alloy. If it's ferrous you could braze it. I checked at the guild and it would cost $25.00 Au plus whatever the freight is back and forth.

Regards Martin.

Martin, as far as I can tell, the lock I posted is used on all K bikes that don't have low seats from at least '84 up to the 1100's.   I suspect the part he is looking for is inside the latch assembly.  A little more detail and a photo of where his part came from wouldn't hurt.

I suppose it could be a latch for a low seat.  I've never seen a bike with one of those seats up close to know what the latch looks like.

Hi

The part I posted is one of the internal components.
This is the point of attachment for the seat.

Gryph I'm not sure, but looking at the seat catch that is broken I believe it is of his 84 K100. It looks different to what I have. Date and model of bike needed. There are two BMW wreckers in Melbourne one in Coburg http://motorcycle-wreckers.com.au/ I think the other one is in Ringwood .https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwi_z9__trTgAhULfX0KHakGCVMQFjABegQIAhAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fbmmotorcycles.com.au%2Fcontact%2F&usg=AOvVaw1nJDj1knsNUlIMKtzqBU87 There is also another one in NSW Graham Jays who i have dealt with goods prices and good service https://kmodelbeamerbits.com.au/. As far as casting is concerned before i moved up here i lived in Morwell and we had a couple of guys who used to cast Kart and motorcycle parts. Gabriel needs to contact local vintage Motorcycle and car clubs they would know of places to get parts cast if needed.
Regards Martin.

Hi
Thank you for your suggestions.
I a, familiar wit the businesses you mentioned.
I suppose I was looking for a simple solution , like glue.
Anyway, I will purchase a replacement part.
 Bike is a 194 k100.
I was surprised that no one else thought my broken seat latch was an issue.
My seat is abnormally loose and I notice it when I am seated.

In a word, Maintenance. 

My RT has over 92,000 miles on it.  The previous owner took good care of it, and I have as well.  Splines looked new when I got the bike, and they still do.
