About the shipping price, I am in Europe and most shipping price from USA shops are higher. Also I buy from BMSBattery all components needed for the electric bicycle, like the motor, battery, controller, throttle, etc, so the shipping is not important if I add the torque arms in a package with the electric kit.

I will use an hammer to find if the metal is hard or soft. I bought 2 pairs to be able to make tests in one pair and destroy it if necessary.

Sometimes the axle piece of this design can be used on the rear. Very often people bolt them on the rear, but it's done in a way that renders the install more or less decorative. What I mean is, if you look at it closely, you see that any rotation of the first piece applies a load to the second piece that will merely slide the hose clamp down the stay. They need to weld the two pieces to prevent this, or have it bolted to the stay, not hose clamped.
Many thanks for the explanation of the possible slide of the hose clamp!! I will for sure weld the both pieces so I have a only one torque arm.
I were decided to built my own torque arms by welding the washers that came with the motor:
Happens that BMSBattery just started to sell the torque arms after I told them about my accident of front fork dropouts broken
