You are going to have to fab up a custom bracket. It's gotta be strong too, that motor bracket takes the entire thrust from the engine driving the tire.
Yeah I know :/

Or you could notch the bracket in the middle removing the center hole
then re drill 2 outside holes higher up on the outside of the frame.
Then re drill the center hole below the notch.
Actually would be better to forget the middle hole and drill 2 more holes
on the inside of the frame so there would be 4 bolts, 2 on each side.
Of course you have to match the holes in the backing plate.
Hey thanks, those are some good ideas -- I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the third option.
But here are some crude drawings I did, is this what you meant by #1 & 2?
I like option #2 the best.
: Oay so I did some measurements and what not, #2 won't work, the steel in the middle will have to be grinded to the point where it is too thin, See pic
SO I think I'll have to go with #1 -- Will this be stable, even though there are no bolts holding on the outside of the seat stays?
