Default Re: FS elite cruiser build ... and random engine mounting questions....

When you say the bolts are too short I have to assume you mean for the front engine mount. Your bike appears to have a larger diameter downtube which might require a longer stud/bolt to give you enough clamping action. It would be better if we had a better, close up picture of the front mount to offer more accurate advice. Just a word of caution. The engine saddle mounts MUST snuggly fit the diameter of the frame. Often that requires some grinding to get the proper inside diameter and angle of the mount.
