I have the basic stand of my subframe jig built with the original subframe mounted. I have to make supports which act as guides plus bolt and locating pins throughout.

My stock subframe weighs 8 lbs with lock mechanism still mounted. I am pretty siked with it so far and can't wait to get started actually building the real deal.

Looks like your ready for mass production [thumbsup]

what's your goal weight for the aluminum version?
It does seem that way doesn't it ;) Not the main goal..actually not even a major thought at all at the moment. Too far from finished product.

I want to cut the weight in half for sure and I am not sure the first attempt will be my final. I used the same philosophy for the exhaust. So its 8 lbs now, that would bring it to 4lbs but I think my real goal is to beat that. I am still doing a lot of thinking and I need to put some ideas to paper.

I know, 'jig' doesn't help much without a pic but I was too excited with my progress that day.

Been making some progress but its slow. I have lots to do besides bike stuff. I need to give up some hobbies to someone who doesn't have any... [laugh]
