The siren bracket welded to the frame of some police frames appears as in the photos below. The bracket is made of steel, ~5 mm thick with a 14 mm diameter hole. Should you wish to add a siren bracket to your frame, please use the pattern I created below by tracing the outline of an original bracket.

The length of the side for the cable mount is ~20 mm. The cable mount is 20 mm long with a 16 mm diameter. The slot is 3 mm wide. The cable mount is threaded to accept a 9 mm × 1.25 mm cable adjuster (same as is used for the front brake cable, etc).

The small cable mount is ~16 mm wide, ~23 mm tall, and has a ~6.2 mm hole drilled in it. It is made from steel ~3.15 mm thick.

When a level (Harbor Freight item number 65691) is aligned along the rear side of the siren bracket, it is mounted at an angle of 30°. Please note that this police frame does not have a side stand bracket mounted to the left lower frame rail. A side stand bracket - with the bare frame sitting on the floor - would alter the orientation of the frame and that would change the observed angle of the siren bracket.

Another look at the small cable bracket, positioned ~128 mm behind the vertical portion of the loop. Note that the angle of the small cable bracket is the same as the angle of the large cable bracket.

I tried to align the tool with the front edge of the bracket. This angle is ~83°. Please note it is difficult pull exact angle measurements as the loop piece is not straight. When replicating, be careful to position your measuring device in a manner similar to how mine is photographed.
