Back bumper brackets?

Hi all,

Does any one know what these "brackets" , one at each end of the bumper, are for on our 1980 international ?

It looks like overkill for a bike rack - but it may have been for some kind of carrier for a motorized wheelchair. Would it be possible for you to ask the person who sold it to you?

Looks like the previous owner had some receiver-mounted flagpole holders. The flagpole brackets would have gone in the receivers, while a spotlight went into the angled part that looks like a socket.

Something like this, maybe?
