Could there also be the same piece or similar from another Tonti bike - SP, Mille, T-3, T-5, etc that may be easier to source and be a suitable replacement for you 1000S piece? Just a thought.
Apparently with aluminum there are just a few degrees of temperature between solid and liquid.
If it's bent beyond comfortable use, why not try to straighten it?I've straightened cast aluminum successfully. An entire industry has developed around straightening cast aluminum auto wheels with a bent rim. Don't try to heat. Hydraulic pressure or a judicious rap with a wooden mallet is what I'd try.
For something completely different...would it be possible to refab the part out of a laser cut piece? CNC piece, or fab/weld some things together to replicate the part?It looks fairly flat with the peg brackets on it. Would not be too hard to replicate it and have it laser cut or CNC or both.
Some aluminum alloys can be annealed by heating to 800 to 1,000 degrees and quenching in water. That hardens steel but anneals aluminum or copper. If it breaks , you are no worse off than you were when you started.
