The scene in question takes place somewhere in Captain America & The Falcon right after the Secret Empire Saga, but before Hawkeye convinces Cap to take on the identity of Nomad. I'd say issue 177 or 178.
It was a one page adventure of this Cap-4-a-Day. Biker "Scar" Turpin thought he was tough and could be the new Cap, but alas he was left battered and bruised after his first outing.

What was that shield made out of, paper?

The issue I was thinking of was Tales of Suspense #96. Fake Caps are popping up and getting hurt and in trouble after Cap announces his retirement. After one fake Cap(who actually knew a bit of judo and did fairly well against some crooks trying to rub him out) needed a save from Steve then Mr. Rogers decided it was time to become Cap again.
