This pics shows my idea of using 1/4" angle iron incorporating the perch bolt but adding two grade 5 u-bolts. The 7/8 x 5/8 bushing will be welded to the angle iron and hold a 5/8 bolt. Once the bushing is welded, it will be cut to length. The 1 1/2" length shown is a bit too long. I anticipate 3/4" length after welded. I will need to weld v-blocks on the bracket which will cradle the bottom of the axle. I will also remove unwanted steel to make it look cleaner. It may be a bit bulky,but welding a bracket to the small 2" axle doesn't seems a good idea. An I-beam axle may work better for welding.
