    Hi Iron, welcome to Motoredbikes!

    I had the same problem with my bikes frame. I went to Lowes and got some steel brackets. Pressed them together, drilled a hole, bolted them. Then used some aluminum bar stock and drilled holes wider to use the universal. Worked perfect for less than 5 bucks.

    Good luck!

    nice setup typhoon! With something like that and some JB weld, you should be set ironlion!
