Man, I forgot to check this thread. Thanks for the info on the file. I ended up trying to dig what aluminum I could out of the threads (it wasn't very much, and just on the tip) I purchased a thread repair kit at Autozone, but the damn thing wasn't long enough to get through the frame and down to the messed up threads anyway.
I got a new 10mm bolt from Lowes and slowly threaded it down into the hole, and as I hoped the threads weren't messed up that bad. I think the new bolt cleaned them up enough that I was able to tighten the bolts down again with no issues.
Next step is new brake fluid, CCT, and pretty soon a new chain and sprocket set.
......maybe the track this weekend for Father's Day if I can talk my wife into it
