Something like that was exactly what I was thinking too... some extra metal to spread the load and take the wear so the U bolt can't saw thru the frame would have prevented that... A 1" wide section of the right size pipe could be split and installed between the frame and the U bolt, or it could be brazed into place, then temp install the engine and tack the U bolt, remove the engine and braze the U bolt to lock it in place, this would eliminate the wear caused by the engine vibration as well as eliminate a lot of the vibes from transferring thru the frame and into the seat and grips...
