CHECK THE UPDATES IN THE FIRST POST FOR LATEST PRICING
So I had this idea regarding a controller bracket for infineon controllers that are the most commonly sold here on ES for performance ebikes.
The concept is basically a flat plate of a thickness a bit more than 1/16" aluminum that can attach to the water bottle bolts and has the bolt holes at the edges to mount it with bolts and not ZIP TIES. I also added 2 additional holes for different mounting solutions.
As an example you could use the clamp in the image to attach a controller vertically to the seatpost tube. This will be a very clean install and it is better protection from theft since you can now have up to 6 bolts per controller. I am making the bulk orders for 6,9,12 and 18 fets plates and also for the clamps in silver and black color so that you can attach it to different places on the bike. The ones shown in the image are for 6 fet and 12 fet.
The idea of this thread is this; pm me if you are interested to be on the first order. I'm targeting the price of these to be 20$ shipped within the US and if you need the clamp adapter 5$ more.
The brackets are made out of 6061 T6 aluminum.
The reason I made these is because I'm making some bikes for a local business and I wanted a clean install of the controllers so that it looks profesional and if there is interest I could also sell it on ES. Let me know what you guys think.
Here's a pic

Update 4/25/13 ;
Alright as promised some pictures of the plates and brackets;
A couple of notes thought ...
1- The plates work pretty well with the stock bottle mount holes and are not too flexible.
2- Sadly the clamp adapters do not fit the seatpost. It seems that they COULD work but you will need a bigger bolt. Also the fit between the plates and the 2 bolts on the clamp is pretty close. I asked the center to center dimension of the clamps and they gave it to me but I think its a bit short. This means that the bolts are a tight fit and as you tighten them it will be a bit hard to get them all the way to the end. I believe you can still make it work. but you will need a seat post diameter that is smaller than 27mm.
3- If you want to mount the controller FLAT you'd need some low profile bolts or you can just use normal bolts but the back of the controller will rest on the bolt so do not over tighten the edges. Funny enough I used tie wraps on the green bike picture and it looks clear and it holds pretty good and is super stiff.
Please contact me via PM if you are interested.
Update 5/14/13 ;

Update 5/28/13 ;
EPIC... thanks Stevil_Knevil
This type of bracket is PERFECT and VERY sturdy.
It might fit a 12fet but since I ran out of 12 fet plates i can't take some measurements. Ordered some more plates to maintain the stock.
Also on another note these plates also work with greentime controllers.
