If you are cantilevering the peg mount very far down and forward, especially down, then yes I would add a gusset maybe at a 45* angle back up under to the frame, or if it is a clear shot, then all the way accross to the other peg even to balance out load.

12mm bolt diameter but its probably moot because sailah likes to join stuff with molten liquid metal. We just need to sit back and see what he comes up with when he gets to that point

I like the idea of joining the pegs under the cradle though....

centerstand might be nice, too... just kidding
