Default Re: Seat tube motor bolts keep breaking?!

Ok. Thank you. I like the idea of the plates to spread the load. The original bolts must have been so cheap that they flexed and bent more before snapping rather than the high strength ones. Back to the drawing board to figure out how to mount it to fit! Does anyone know where I can get the wide steel plates. That's the reason I used the aluminum for the mount because it was the only thing that was 3in wide and the only steel plate I have is 1" flat stock. My Christmas list has a welder on it. Maybe it's time I get myself a gift and start fabricating my own stuff. lol If you have some pictures of anybody that has mounted to a oversized seat tube that would be awesome! I'm a visual kinda person! Thanks again.
