So finally, here’s my first fully completed CAD Bike. Hence its name.

Specifications:
Base – 1730 mm
Rake – 38°
Trail – 138 mm
Clearance – 85 mm
Seat height – 600 mm
Rear tyre – 180/60 R16
Front tyre – 100/90 R19

The engine is my own concept based on Harley-Davidson Evo overall and mounting dimensions.

Modeling and rendering:
Everything is modeled in Solidworks. There are 364 parts, 176 of which are unique. The whole process of modeling took me a lot of time (especially the drivetrain), but now I can use the parts for my future projects. After modeling, everything went into Keyshot for rendering. Each of these images took about 2 hours to render on Athlon II X2 245 2.9 GHz with 2 GB RAM.

Big thanks to:
First of all – Djordje Kovacevic for inspiring me to continue working on this old project of mine. I actually started it in the distant 2008, but abandoned it, because I couldn’t find sufficiently detailed blueprints of the engine, transmission, etc.

Terry Stonehocker and Bryce W. from GrabCAD.com for the great models of engine and transmission that I used as reference to build mine, because I don’t have any of the parts to disassemble, measure and model.

Grigoriy Georgiev for the technical support at the initial stages of the project because he was already familiar with many of the HD parts and their construction. After all, he had already built a couple of real bikes by then.

Cenestelle for the fuel tank tribal texture, name suggestion and the invaluable continuous support.

    Looking cool. The drawing at the bottom kinda completes it for me.

    It will be great if you can spend two more hours to make one more shot showing engine and drive train internals.

    Great job!

    I was recommended this web site by way of my cousin.
    I am no longer positive whether this submit is written
    by means of him as no one else realize such distinct about my problem.

    You’re wonderful! Thank you!
