    Not easy to find,, but then you never know. Suggest to get some Plastifix or Plastex and you can fix that without anybody knowing that you did it. Might take a bit of practice, but once mastered it's easy enough, cheap and works good.
    Did you forget? You are not forgotten!!
    When were you going to decide?

    ABS cement along with MEK solvent will work very well for virtually any plastic on the Venture (all the plastic is ABS).
    Cracks without missing pieces can be repaired easily; the repair can be nearly invisible (if the cement and reinforcement is applied to the back side).
    On your terminal panel, I notice that all the recessed mounting holes are broken. Very common, but easily repaired to better than new.
    1. Shave or grind down until flush the remnants of the broken out recessed bosses.
    2. Cut a few squares of 1/8" thick ABS from a sheet of ABS.
    3. Bond the squares of ABS to the leveled backside of the panel with ABS cement. Bond two layers of 1/8" ABS to equal approximately 1/4" build up.
    4. Using a Forstner bit sized to fit within the recess, bore down through one layer of newly applied ABS.
    5. Use a twist drill of a size appropriate for the 4mm recessed hex screw and drill a through hole.

    Like Marcarl I swear by it. My 89 was written off in 2007. I bought it back and restored it using Plastifix. No need for spot putty because were needed it sands down super smooth and you can keep adding until the surface is flawless. On the back side you can reinforce it with fiberglass drywall tape for extra strength. Tabs can be remade on the plastic parts with it as well. My left side fairing is actually two half fairings welded together with the plastifix and reinforced with the fiberglass tape and no one has ever been able to find were I joined it. When my bike fell off the lift table two years ago it actually held up from the fall.
