Glue on Cracked Fairing?

Hello, my 84 Aspencade was leaking from the clutch master cylinder and compromised some of the plastics below it like the fairing. Is there a type of adhesive most people use? Something with a bit of flex maybe?

Bodywork is all ABS, like my pal said the ABS glue is the answer.

If you just need a strip of ABS plastic to glue to the back side let me know how big a piece and we'll see if I can put a piece in an envelope and mail it to you.

I make my own glue. I cut up abs elbows not the pipe, elbows are a better plastic and add it to a jar with acetone and leave it for a day or so. The acetone melts the plastic and can be mix with a stick. You just have to add a bit more acetone if it's to tick or just leave it and it will ticken. I glued a lot of stuff with this mixture and it holds.
