Need a rock solid ebike mount

I would like to mount (preferably both but at least one) a Dash/Peak to an 1 3/4" tubular frame which, in turn, would be mounted to a very well suspended frame designed for off-road traveling. The bikes will be covered properly and 'I'm guessing' the wheels supported by some other means if not by the mount (preferred).
Are there any companies out there who fashion themselves as the 'gold standard' in making heavy duty mounts? I look at an ebike as something requiring a bit 'extra' in terms of mounting (weight, wire connections, etc.).

Thanks!

P.S. I can fabricate a tube adaptor yet would obviously like to keep the bike as close as possible to the frame. I also realize that a singular round surface is not ideal for doing this and may have to come up with a bracket between the frame tubes.

What are you looking to mount? You can look at wheelchair brake mounts. Most are 1.25" but 1.75" does exist (they might be tough to find though). They're pretty solid, we've used them to mount a motor attachment to a wheelchair.

You can also look at Jeep light mounts for tubular bumpers. They're often made for 1.75" tubing and they're definitely durable.

I wouldn't support an ebike by the frame.. Thin wall aluminum..

Better off lugging it by supporting the wheels.. Plenty of HD bike racks and dirt bike racks that mount off of a trailer hitch.. And not expensive.
