These were my original KLR's and sidecars. Previously I had already refurbished the red one and now had this as the final result.

I stripped the black one down and found the usual bad welding - which was no surprise this time.

I remade and welded the bottom subframe, fabricated a new front top mount... this went quickly and easily this time as I had the templates that I made up for my other KLR.

Initial fit up of the sidecar frame and body:

Very nice Stevo, very neat... you must be only one of a handful in the world who has the balls to do this to a KLR. You've turned an ordinary bike into a real adventure machine! Well done!!  :thumleft:

Thanks 2Bfree (Keith) I have been following your build with interest as well, I have 2 BMWs that I want to do builds on as well. I like the look of your subframe design.
