If you find yourself in a bind like that take a 10 or 12 mm bolt that has a 17 mm head. Screw a nut on and tack weld it. Put the nut in the socket and the head of the bolt in the bike. Instant allen wrench.
Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.
