Maybe upper but I think the lower engine mount helps below. We'll see how it looks after it's loaded with stuff. Oh, I see what you mean, a triangle under the engine maybe with a same shape lightening hole in it. That would do a lot and look cool. I'll make some cardboard templates and check it out. Good call Dave.

I also want to shore up the kickstand and rear axle area. A lot of added strength for the little added weight.

Back in the 70's my dad and a bunch guys, including Malcolm, would meet at little mountain and ride to devore through trails,sandwash and fireroads to the fruit stand and back. I was on a 175 ct1 and my dad a AT125 that we bought from Malcolm when he was on la cadena. Course I only seen Malcolm at the start and finish.

That's great history. I've never met him but always loved what he did for the sport. Heard a lot of stories about riders seeing him on trail rides and how decent he treats people.
