Default Re: BIG Problem with Front Mount and my Bike :)

Harley Davidson had a great idea some years ago. I found this picture somewhere, can't recall where it came from but what's interesting is the engine mount from the cylinder head to the frame.
Personnaly I've never had a problem with broken mounts or fasteners but apparently I'm the exception due to the number of posts I see regarding this problem. Too bad the designers of our little 2 strokers didn't foresee the potential for engine mount failures and do something like the one below. A good machinist could probably copy this idea with a new cylinder head.
