Re: Skull and Bones cruiser with a radical frame failure.
They break where the plate hits the frame. Using cut sections of pipe to spread the loads will prevent this problem. See Norm Neal's VeniceMotorBikes clamp style mounts for the right way to do clamps.
Cheaper than billet mounts and almost as strong, if not stronger!
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
