i planned on using the OEM taillight in the stock location, so any new mounting points had to work around it, and there's not much room, considering the seat covers too.

there are frame jig pins about 30mm long welded on each side of the subframe tubes which are not used in the bike assembly and are bent out of the way. i couldn't see a way to use these, except that the segment welded to the tube made a good place to weld on a new mount.

as for a new mount, i could have started from scratch, heck, why do that when i have a perfectly good Toyota truck door hinge that will work perfectly. it's a stamped steel part, light gauge, and with a nice rolled edge that produces a strong section.

cut it in half...

the angle changed a few degrees...

then rewelded and cleaned up.
