Please note that there will be changes to the chair side due to changes discussed at this visit to the shop. We are going to build custom sidecar/frame based loosely on the style of the Ariel Atom. So, there will not be a separate sidecar frame and body. That said, this is what I have, so far.

Also note, the subframe, at this point is mocked up on a K75 mule. It will move to my K100 soon.

Well, here are some pictures of the subframe/front end to date. We returned the K75 mule back to the shop that was kind enough to lend it to me for this project. My thanks go to Duane and Fred at Street Cycles in Falmouth, Maine.

Some welds are still just tacked. One tab broke the tack weld as we were removing the subframe from the mule. My bike goes to the shop next to get connected. I can't wait. Shop owner says he would like to be finished in time for the shop's open house on May 26. I WILL RIDE IT THIS SPRING!!!
