Hi there:
I am putting together my ride but I need the dimensions of the lower mount strap and front mount strap as the system I am putting together will be similar to the gebe system. What is the thickness of the aluminum also? PM me please?
thanks,
Jimmy

The GEBE mount and strap are steel, not aluminum.

The GEBE engine mount I have (bought late 2006) measures 1-1/8" x 3/16" thick.

The front strap I couldn't find to measure, I ended up not using it. It was about 3/4" x 1/8" maybe, but it was a rather soft metal. I'd guess that this was so it was easier to bend in shape; I used a piece of 4130 steel and heated it with a welding torch when I put the engine kit on the first bike it was on, but plain 4130 that size would be pretty tough to bend cold.

Also note: there have been a couple broken mounts (I know at least one, that was posted here) and numerous broken straps observed--usually where the holes are drilled through.
