    I've been digging through posts and I wanted some opinions/advice on mounting a Velorex-562 onto a CB360T. I've found some used Velorex's for good price points and I'd debated fabricating my own frame similar to the DMC sidecars basic frame. I've seen that some suggest building an entire sub-frame for the bike and others just pop it right on. Won't be doing any heavy riding but want to handle the occasional pot-hole. The rig won't be carrying a person, just a rectangular gear box. Thanks!

    The main frame on this bike is fairly short. I would make a sub frame for the bike. I would start by removing the center stand and making a mount that would go in its place and would move the lower rear mount further aft then the main frame and have the mount come out under the exhaust pipe. I would tie the front lower mount to the engine mount bolts. The upper mounts a frame clamp would work fine. A Velorex or similar sidecar would be a blast on this bike.
