Question on 1970 Bultaco Matador

I have just begun work on a Mk IV Matador I have had in the back yard since 1979. Picture of frame below. (Oops, "You may not post attachments") My question is about the lower triple clamp.

When I removed it from the frame, it came away with the steering stem. So far, so good. The problem is that it can rotate about the steering stem, and that joint is a bit loose (it wobbles).

How are those parts meant to be joined together? I would have guessed they could be welded together, but maybe they were a press fit, or threaded, or ?

I am currently mystified, and any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Larry - Pasadena
