Hello, can anyone tell me the purpose of the two holes in the middle of the rear
vertikal part of the gardengate frame? See atteched foto.
I guess the pillion footrests and the muffler are fastend here but why two holes?
.. one of them is for a sidecar mounting.
The upper hole (plain, with horizontal slot) is for the pillion footrest. The lower hole (threaded) is for the silencer mount. On most frames a single hole serves both functions. I think the sidecar mount is right at the bottom, below the frame rail.
Cheers, Ian McD
