What in the world is going on with that plate between the engine and down tube? That's not supposed to be there. Any idiot should be able to tell that's not right. You've got to be kidding me if you think that's not sketchy.

And as far as the way the engine was designed to mount to the frame, I can't think of a better way to mount it. Just because some of you think that the only way to mount it is with some huge bottom bracket or by drilling a friggin' hole in your down-tube doesn't mean your ineptitude is their fault.

I also love how you guys are so quick to drill a hole in your down tube which SEVERELY weakens it, yet you won't put a couple dents in the sides of them to allow the OEM studs to pass by and clamp it properly. I mean, it's only the second most stressed area on the bike so lets punch a HOLE through it. That's a GREAT idea.
