Sorry my man, but I have been under my Champion many times and a bumper could be designed to bolt up to the trailer hitch frame attachment points very easily.
All it takes is some engineering and fabrication skills. If it is possible to attach a trailer hitch to the frame, it is sure as h**l possible to fabricate a bumper to attach to the same points, and probably one that is better looking and stronger than a trailer hitch receiver mounted bumper.
If I ever get around to working one out, I would be glad to sell you one. Many Champion owners don't have trailer hitches, never will, and there is certainly a market for a good bumper that looks good, and doesn't mount to the trikes plastic body. Any bumper that attaches to the body is next to worthless, and is a disaster waiting to happen.
A good bumper can be designed to bolt up directly to the Champion frame that would be cheaper and stronger than one that requires first buying the Champion hitch ($$$$) and then the bumper to fit into it. (more $$$$), and in the final analysis, is only supported to the bike at one point...the hitch receiver.
That said, don't hold your breath. My time is limited and my fab shop is extremely busy, and getting them to proto something is probably not in the cards for a while.
Maybe someone else who has more time and capability will come up with something similar in the meantime.
