Cantilever brake mount post studs - TNT Pro XL

I have a TNT Pro XL built for canti brakes up for sale and an interested party asked me a very good question about the posts.  As you can see, my frame has no posts:

So I thought I would just easily grab some up.  I look at the frame closely and I see that the bosses have no threaded holes (like M8/M10), rather just a threw hole with flat spots on each side of the hole.  So I looked at my '94 ELF XL and it is made the same way (only my ELF has the posts).  It is a post with no male threaded part on the bottom.  It's just pushed up from the bottom side into the hole. 

So I'm about to buy a male threaded canti and grind the male threaded part off and jam it up through the bottom of these holes.  However, does any one know more about this and perhaps has a better solution?

Thanks for any help.

That's a great idea.  Maybe I will do that, but still yet, I am concerned that this will prevent the spring tab from reaching one of the 3 adjustment holes.  Also, getting an M10 nut in the back side might be tight.  So of the ideas, I've received, yours is the best and I might use it, but I'm hoping for a more "official" answer.

Fella'sn (or ladies)...I need some help on this one.  The hole is 8 mm in diameter and has a flat side.  It's almost impossible to put a nut on the back side, nor put a post up from the bottom.  There has to be some kind of a trick....   Would much appreciate a close up pic from someone.

Pffft....that's funny....it's so obvious and I didn't even think about it.  Thanks!  I'll see what they can do.
