Approx 1" square part of the frame needs removing. This took 5 mins with an angle grinder.
Charlie will be sending me the prototype as soon as it's been fabricated for testing.
From what I've seen, the final product is going to be better
than any other on the market. Charlie has put in a lot of time and effort to make this so, otherwise the endeavour would have been pointless I guess.

There were several early bikes with cracked frames at exactly this spot. A crack developed that propagate to the centerstand mounting hole.
The replacement frame had the corner made with bigger radius.
