Does anyone have a fix for the rear chain guard stud or know of anyone who makes a replacement stud. My threads are stripped / gone from stripping chrome. 1952 panhead

With all you expert machinists and craftsmen out there you would think someone would be able to manufacture a replacement chain guard stud, cripes you all make everything else.

Can you just rethread it with a tap and die set.

The threads are in poor shape due to removing chrome. The length is ok but hardly any thread material left. Like a skinny stud with a hole in the end for the cotter pin.

Why not dress down the stud, thread for a smaller size, them make a hollow, threaded inside-and out stud to screw on over it?
