There were three '81-on carriers. The first was know for breaking and I don't know if that one was bolted or not. The second and third are riveted. Details are on Snowbum's site somewhere.

It could simply be that rivets are the correct fastener for this application.

Is it bad that it's bolted in place??? IF so why???
Well, hypothetically I suppose bolts might come loose.
