you gunna beef up the frame where it mounts as well or just run it as is?
I had considered plating in the front where the rivets used to be, but it’s a logistical nightmare for welding. There is a hole dead center of the bracket that I might be able to drill and tap which would add a 5th bolt.
That looks great, Patrik! It looks like something that would be offered by Solo or Giant… hint hint—maybe there is a market for them?

Is there space to bring a support tube down to that bracket for added beefcakery?
I can’t understand why these parts aren’t offered from these guys. I really want to step into the TTB market so maybe I could offer something like this 🤷🏻‍♂️. I have jigs and templates for both passenger and driver now. “S.S. Designs” ... wait... no.

There are so many moving parts right there that have the possibility to crash into it, but IF there is room for a support leg to be ran I definitely will. Has to be 100% bolt on.. I like bolt ons.

I worked at a German company, BSing with a German dude about music one day and KISS came up. He said they couldn't use their logo to advertise in Germany because of the SS. Oh, and this dudes uncle was a Hitler youth camper.

Outerwear for the AEM “Siltflow” filter came in. There’s just enough room for it to fit in there. Tighter than your sister.

Beam mount is in. Tapped the center hole because I could not fit the middle bolt with a nut due to the wider spread bracket. There were only 4 rivets originally so I imagine the 5th will add some more security.
