that would be as simple as cutting triangle pieces to fit in all the corners of the inside frame work and welding them centered in the tubes with a solid bead (tacking them would defeat there pourpose) the larger the triangle gauset brace the stronger and more stif and ridgid your bike will be.
i can take a cheap wally 100$ speacial and with 1 small sheet of 18guage steel from lowes for 15$ make the frame so strong and stiff you can park a fork truck on it
Please understand that I by no means want to rain on your parade here but this information is not quite right.
A cheap wally world bike no matter how many gussets you cobble on to it is still a cheap bike.
Low quality materials do not make for a quality or safe build.
Look for an industrial bike like a workman.
You can order one just about anyway you need it.
Then if you can not fab parts use the available bolt on kits to complete your build.
A 212 is never a cheap build , if you value your hyde.......
