I got some updates welded up on my sidecar frame. it's an Inder-type sidecar, but the frame was built to stronger standards. the shortcoming with it was the universal mount which might have worked for a smaller bike, but with my Nomad as a tug...no way. I got a pinch tube and a couple 2x2 square tube steel braces to mount under the frame. I also welded on a new spindle and am using a 4 bolt pattern trailer hub for a better tire option. I got a 70* rigid mount for the rear mount too. Now that it's all back together, the rig feels much better. it seems more stable and planted in right turns and left turns are feeling fine too. side note...while I had the tub apart, I also removed my front end and replaced bearings. my brake rotor is not dragging hard on left turns now!

Next step is a leading link front end. if anyone knows of someone that can provide a kit or components, let me know! I have a local expert to help me with fine details for axle and brakes.
