Arc welding repair on my motorcycle rack (India)

Luggage racks on Royal Enfield Bullet motorbike have the tendency to crack and break frequently, due to weak brackets, poor design and vibrations.­

This guy fixed my cracked brackets in a small village in Sikkim.­

He is arc welding with no protection of any kind, not even welding glasses, which is quite common in poorer areas that only have the bear minimum supplies and equipment.­ Of course he did an excellent job, and charged me the normal price for the repair (a couple of dollars).­
