Securing the Speed Hump

I need some help trying to securing my speed hump on my cafe seat. I was able to secure the forward part but the speed hump vibrates and rubs at my new powder coated frame. What have you done to secure the rear portion? If possible post come pics.

Here is how my speed hump is sitting.



I don't want to drill a hole in the speed hump.

If you don't want to drill holes I only have one probably really bad hair brained idea. High strength Velcro on the seat hump and the frame. Who knows, it could work. It at least would keep it from vibrating and wearing off you powder coating.

The seat is missing the side edges that strengthen it. The rear hump is essentially attached to the seat via a flexible hinge. THAT'S what needs to be resolved!

It should have come with a little bracket that gets epoxied in place so you can put a bolt through it and the loop on the back of the rear frame. Look in the box.

It did come with that bracket but with my R65, I believe they came with a shorter subframe. I wish it was that easy but it's a R65...lol
