Your a guy unafraid of a little work virtually a example and enigma to us all ! I hope you'll tig at least the visible welds so it doesn't look like a utility trailer !!
After thinking another minute how about a low very aero monocoque body with some big aluminum boxes for stiffness and to attache the bumpers and suspension too, it'll be light aero get 40 mpg and still be a sidecar. Do you want help ? LOL DB

Thats the way the Japanese do it on all those aluminum perimeter frames they build, probably all manufacturers tig where its visible spool gun where its not. That's a great idea the Urals are actually a bit on the small side, had one on an unfaired GL1100 with an auto battery in the trunk of the chair and a 17 pound Schnauzer and his stuff we didn't have huge amounts of extra room.DB

I guess I don't understand this. I can see the bracing you've added to it, but I'm not sure what you're gonna use it for. Is this just gonna be the mounting point for a front upper strut?

Or I could learn patience and just wait to find out.

The rear part of the subframe looks wicked strong.
