I had an Old ford transit back in the late 70s with that horrible V4 engine and a mattress in the back and a sign on the back door that said
If its Rocking Dont Bother Knocking . Many a time it was used to rescue brit bikes that had broke down.

Stregthen with steel sections where you can.Bolt and bronze weld/braze
A combination of mechanical fixings and brazing always worked for me
