Machine is excited to team up with dbbp.com
and Duckman on this project bike. Our plan is to blend the
old with the new on this project machine using old boardtrack
styling cues combined with modern day technology to first
produce in CAD and then build the ultimate board tracker."
to Marcel from the Bike-Hospital,
me the EVO engine parts I needed to measure for this project!
11 August 2002: Spent
the last 2 weeks doing the PERFORMANCE
MACHINE lettering on the fueltank,
damn thats a lot of work.....
For those of you that are familiar with 3D CAD work, the
fueltank now consists of 9 parts with a total of 410 features!
All this bike needs now is a taillight.
18 August 2002:
Well, I added the taillight and some brackets for
the #10 plates, the design part
of this project is finished! Next step
will be translating all the parts from Pro/Engineer to SolidWorks,
the rest is up to the guys at PERFORMANCE MACHINE.

Re-rendered in Hypershot
One of the photo's that shows the 1920's look we are
after, only we will do it with PM 21" billet "Wrath"
and brakes and an EVO engine! More pics like this
can be found in Coolest
Some of the first sketches of #14 by Duckman
Sketch by Roland Sands, I guess we are on the same wavelength!
Basic frame geometry, the raised gearbox and 1½" belt in combination
with those BIG 21" PM Wrath wheels makes for some incredible lean
If you want to know how to make
a bike handle, there is a lot of
interesting stuff at www.ducati.com
(tech-cafe section) about the
relations between rake, trail and wheelbase. According to them,
AN should be 6% of BN for a race bike and between 6% and 6.5%
for a sports bike. The 2002 FXD has 6.15%; perfect!
