    I'll be watching this thread. Will you build a subframe or get one from Piekert or Baus?

    I've been very happy with mine, when it's running. If you haven't already, keep an eye on the paralever driveshaft, have the missing circlip installed in the transmission, and keep the revs up... But you probably already know that.

    Interesting thread.The building you are doing is very good.I wish you luck on your build.Airheads do make good hack.What kind of sidecar are you using? The leading link looks like a Unit Front end..But you built it..:freaky
