I had read about how others had mounted their strebels. I thought I would share what I came up with. I just created a rectangular bracket using a strip of metal that I heated and bent. Then connected the ends using JBWeld. Used the screws holding the ABS stuff onto the shelf located on the left of the bike. I also mounted the horn relay in this area, and the fuse panel relay on the shelf.

Just a quick follow-up. The JBWeld joint ended up not holding very well. I took the frame to a local welding shop and he welded it together in about 2 minutes. Other than that, I am very pleased with the results.
