Carefully heating it up then bending the top part by 90 degrees would have solved your clearance problems whilst still retaining it's structural strength.

Looks like a u-brake booster might fit and still give shock clearance? But with less tyre+mud room.

I already have the above booster fitted but it is not a booster it is there to locate the pins at the back,the front one is the actual booster,and if it brakes dont care will buy a new one :D

Marin Man.

I think I have seen carbon fibre sheet available on eBay. Perhaps you could get some and cut out your own carbon booster. You could bring the arch closer top the tyre to make room so its not hitting the seatube.

However,

The huge box section swingarm shold be plenty strong enough to cope with the braking forces. Why do you think you need a booster in the first place?
