Find one on Ebay or some recycler
1.25" x .25" flat bar may work.
The bottom part looks to be fairly straight on horizontal view.
A bit of an offset near the tire.
Another piece (doubler) would make it stronger.
The factory mount has some rubber bushings.
The engine mounts have rubber bushings so best to use some rubber on the bracket
to allow for some movement. A small pipe section and some rubber hose.
When bottom muffler lined up than the diagonal bracket can be measured and cut.
I would run that bracket out to the forward muffler mounting bolt.
02-03 1800R 18455-MCV-000 BRACKET, MUFFLER

Appears to be the same bracket.. last 3 digits could be a vendor change.

Honda parts nomenclature:
Hope this helps;
General parts have a part number divided into 3 sections,
The first string of digits (1234-XXX-XXX) indicates the Honda function and component number for this part.
The second string of digits (XXXXX-456-XXX) is the product code, also known as Parts Classification Number in hondaspeak. This is the number that indicates the product (motorcycle) where this particular part was first used. The product code is probably the most interesting portion of the part number when trying to determine interchangeability of Honda parts between various models.
The third string of digits (XXXXX-XXX-789) is the Classification Number. It is mostly used to indicate various suppliers or improvements for the same part. Also any potential color code is tacked at the end of the classification number as digits (letters).

If someone needs a cardboard pattern, I could trace it from an original,

And supply some dimensions.

Throwing some ideas out .

The following pics are just there to illustrate procedure.

They are from an unrelated project.

-- Build a simple jig, metal or wood, to set the angles and dimensions.

--Use tubing or sheet/strap steel to build the bracket.

I have one, but not positive if it's an '02 R model, or an '03 C model.

If they're the same, you're all set.

Thanks for the information....I did try to buy it from [email protected] but he never sent the part and wanted more money. I was able to get my money back, but I'm back to square one.
