I got the subframe done today( welded,sanded,and painted),Mounted it on the bike,tightend all the bolts down.Here is where I ran into my first real problem of this whole build.IF I push REALLY hard ( back against a wall and feet on the subframe)I can get the subframe to move side to side about 1/8-1/4 of a inch,in the front.I know that doesn't sound like much BUT the sidecar will put alot more stress than that ( I THINK ??) and I don't want any flex if I can help it.So tomorrow morning I will go back out and sit next to the bike until I find another mounting point for the bottom of the subframe.
