I don't check here very often, so just seeing your message.
Did you get anything done?
Having something welded might be the lightest solution, but not the only. Using some aluminum stock from CTC, Rona, etc, I think something could be fabricated that does not need welding. Bolt on only.
Exactly what would depend on the type of bottle holder, but I think that if one were to use one that has holes in the base, the bolts that hold the bottle holder on would also be the bolts that hold the support to the frame.
Of course, the easiest way would be a saddle bag or other type of bag. That way, your water bottles are not in direct sunlight, and you could use it for other stuff if required.
