Ok, I had a looksee in the flesh at that Filzer. It's a good candidate and the mounting points will just fit. However, I do think it is going to fail at the rear portion given the loads and pressure points it will be exposed to. The manufacturers didn't tack the joint where the tube ends butt up together and that is where I snapped the previous one which did have plenty of welding there. I could take a picture of it for this thread.
