LARGE Universal front mount is for 1 1/2" (1.5" or 38 mm) up to 2" (51 mm) bike down tube diameters.
This unique offset design of the mount allows it to not only fit various down tube sizes and required installation lengths but will also reduce vibration. You can mount it so that it does not greatly increase the length of the front mount from stock or it can be flipped around to increase the length of the front mount. (Please see our downloadable installation instructions for photos) It can also accommodate oval shaped tubes.
The bracket is made from HD steel and is powder coated gray. The kit comes with all the necessary hardware for almost any application.
We sell two general sizes for tube size - large and small. Within those sizes the mounts are sized to fit both types of engine stud spacing - there are narrow and wide stud spaced engines made in China. The correct mount must be selected.
Down tube size means the tube Outer Diameter (O.D.) - the tube sizes are somewhat approximate due to bike tube manufacturing tolerance, paint thickness, etc. Most bikes range from 1.125" to 2.00". Diameter is the distance across or the actual tube size. It means two times the radius. Not the distance around the tube, which is called circumference. Diameter is best measured using a caliper - you can even use a low cost plastic caliper. Also - if you have accurately measured the circumference of your down tube, you can convert to diameter using Pi X D = Circumference. To find Diameter (D) if you know Circumference, divide Circumference by Pi (3.141) or there are on line calculators.
As noted also please verify and select the center to center spacing of your engine studs. The two sizes are ~1.6" (~41 mm) and ~1.9" (~48 mm). These are approximate distances because the engine studs may not be perfectly parallel. It is best to measure this distance as close to the engine as possible
Please select your tube width and engine stud spacing below.

I needed a custom front mount for a bike that was a tricky fit. I looked up and saw what mount other people had used for this bike and this was the one. Fantastic product.
couldnt be a better fit!

I was more than pleased with this oversized front mount fit perfectly and the included machined aluminum shims are an added bonus, they look way nicer than stacked washers! After painting everything flat black it's a perfect match to what I had in mind!

Great solution for my 2 stroke engine and large downtube. Solid build, I wouldn't be able to beat that engine out the frame with a bat. Yes I would recommend this product to my friends... Enjoy!

Nothing but a NAPA muffler clamp in the box, but the plate is another story. You will spend more in time and cash trying to fabricate this plate. One thing not mentioned in the reviews is that you can steer the plate due to the angled cut holes to line up perfectly in the frame.

This part rocks! This will be one of the cheapest and best upgrades you will make and your engine will stay put. You also can adjust engine position a bit if needed. Excellent product!

slightly different than the one pictured, but it was the perfect fit for my Micargi Huntington. very adjustable and versatile when it comes to engine placement, would recommend this over anyone else's kit.

The bracket I got works great, but it's not *exactly* like the one pictured. The picture has 90 degree bends, the one I got was more on the order of 30 degree bends. Doesn't change the functionality, but this difference might be important to someone. I needed to bend mine a bit so that the bracket would hit the down tube and the engine case at the right angles, and it was easy to bend by bolting it to the engine, and putting a large adjustable wrench on the other bit. Comes with lots and lots of hardware - but doesn't include lock washers for the u-bolt (or maybe I missed them?). Overall, very good.

This is a really great product! It beats the heck out of the drilled through frame mount I had before that was bending. SBP came through for me again! A great product and it shipped from WA to CT in 2 days!

I ordered the Front Mount and it's better than great; it's greater!!
I got my package super fast, even delivered to Alaska it was fast!
The mount works flawlessly and I now am making smoke and noise and loving it!
Thanks guys for a very well thought out and executed product.

FANTASTIC PRODUCT! Made my 80cc build look very proffesional. I would HIGHLY recommend this mount over the cheesy oversized tube mount included with the Chinese engine kits.

I just put this mount on my hopped up 80cc (67cc) kit and I'm very satisfied with the quality of the part and the difference it made in the vibration. GET THIS MOUNT!!!
