Norsseman - who are the chicks in the pic?
If you look in the gallery under mods, you'll see my r/r relocation. I went to Home Depot and got:
6" heavy duty Strong Tie - usually back in the lumber dept. Just a plain straight one
1/2" U-bolt (strange enough, it fits our 1" pipe). That's in the miscellaneous nuts and bolts section.
2 nuts to fit the old r/r bolts - take one of the bolts with you to match it to the right size nuts.
Some shrink wrap tubing that will fit over the U-bolt (isn't necessary, but protects the paint on the frame from the U-bolt. The shrink wrap is in the electrical section where the voltmeters are.
If you don't already have one, a drill and drill bit the size of the original r/r bolts. The U-bolt should fit through the same size hole.
Oh, maybe some washers and locktite.
Now, make it look like mine. I should've taken pictures, but I think most folks should be able to copy it fairly easily.
