Wanted: shop recommendations for exhaust repair/fabrication

I'd like to have my '02 Aprilia RSV Mille's exhaust repaired post your recommendations for a Houston-area shop that can do this sort of thing. Thanks!

Due to past crash damage, the exhaust midpipe is touching the rear suspension linkage (photos below), there's a big dent present, and the mufflers are at different heights. I believe the system is titanium; the mufflers definitely are.

(Don't mind the jack stands using them to support the bike while the shock is being serviced.)

From the left side of the bike. Midpipe hits dogbone but clears side plates.

Close-up of the contact:

Pulling down on the muffler pipe allows the midpipe to clear the dogbone, but not by much. Returns to position above once released.

Right side for reference.
