look at the flee market thread, there was a velorex for sale for around 800 bucks.

If not mistaken, it was in FL and in good shape

Thanks. I see one in Ontario, Canada for $1,250. Nada in Florida... Am I missing something? I searched for "velorex" in all of Flea Market...

That looks like something designed by a committee! Too bad they didn't get to see the parts designed by the other members.

Finally got 'round to putting together the subframe for my 07 Sportster. Here's what it looks like.

That is a very "clean design"! I love it. Did you make it yourself or buy it? If you bought it, who did you buy it from?

Very Nice

Tom

Thanks, I ended up making the subframe myself. I couldn't afford the close to $700 for the DMC one and with no pictures of a subframe for a rubber mount Sportster I started from scratch.

I am happy with the result. The frame is solid and looks tidy. All that's left now is to attach my Velorex!

^ ^ ^ Holy crap! That's beautiful work! You have some serious skills there! I'm very impressed!

Thanks for posting that, and please keep us posted of your Velorex mounting project's progress. If you create a dedicated thread, please cross-post the link here! Thanks!

Here's one .
I sold this to a friend who planned to hook it on a Beemer. Plans changed and it's back up for sale. Buggy top and mounts included.
$1400 in central Kentucky. P.M. me for more details.

I just ordered my subframe from Jay at DMC...

I was going to try his rolling chassis to start with and experiment with cargo and building my own tub, but I think I want to just find a tub...
