Tank mounted on studs

Hi, I want to mount a gas tank the easiest way possible I have basic tools and a mig welder I look around the web and everyones drilling holes for bungs, inserts ect, is there any reason i cant just mount a sportster tank on the frame with a couple of welded upturn bolts or studs or is this a weak method? Thanks if anyone can help.

I guess it might work only if there are 2 points of attachment- 1 front and 1 rear?, Although I would dislike this setup either with studs or with bolts screwed into the bungs.
Side to side movement, especially if a frisco style setup- too high over frame. I would want 3 points attachment- 2 in front facing away- but you can't do it with the studs.

I also wonder if grade 8 bolts can be welded to mild steel frame.
