what about using a slightly shorter screw, with a hole in the end that for a cotter pin?

Don't be so hard on yourself. You should see the welds on the frame braces of my CX500 circa 2008.

The question you should ask yourself is: is it safe? and does it work? if those two are yes, then in this case the appearance really doesn't matter.

its a really creative project so far, you should see it through to the end!

Why not have a "Tanshanomi" badge 3D printed that you can stick on over the Can-am?

All you'd have to do to replace them is cut the end off and re-weld it back on once done. Super easy, barely an inconvenience.

couldn't you (not sure on cost) just have some new ones machined from stainless stock?

wow that's terrible quality.

I wonder if Matt at Tannermatic has anything that would fit the bill?
