Cadbike 36 project
started August 2006
20 March 2007
Added taillight and some renderings with lights on.
13 March 2007
Added a revcounter hidden inside the fairing,
also added radial controls for front brake
and hydraulic clutch, built into the handlebars.
6 February 2007
Added rear brake linkage, plugwires and ignition coil
30 January 2007
I added fuelvalves and fuellines,
did not have much time this week...
23 January 2007
I removed the slots in the rear sprocket and replaced
them with holes to match the rest of the bike,
also added shifter linkage and shift- and brakepedals
26 December 2006
I copied the perforated strap that I had on the fueltank to the
fairing and rearend, and added rear footpedals. I also added the
number 36 to the sides of the fueltank.
12 December 2006
I decided to go for a real racy riding position with the footrests
mounted waaay back. The open belt and clutch were a problem
so I designed a "british looking" primary cover to protect the left
foot of the rider. I also added a very low mounted headlight with
a mini-fairing or nacelle. Not sure yet if I am going to keep this...
31 October 2006
Added top motormounts (on both sides!) and moved the top
mount of the front shock so that there is more room to
adjust it. I also added a bracket for the Weber carb and
added some more details to the brake calipers
17 October 2006
I added some 8 piston brake calipers front and rear, made a
stainless steel drilled tankstrap and added handlebar grips
(also drilled). The pipes are chrome instead of black now.
10 October 2006
Changed the chain tensioner and axle block on the swingarm,
added some heatshields to the pipes, changed the brakediscs,
made a slot in the top of the fueltank with a rubber strip,
on top of this I will make a stainless steel mounting strap.
I also added an aluminum oiltank under the gearbox
3 October 2006
Added some gold stripes to tank and rearend, changed the rear
pipe to chrome and added clipon style handlebars, only these
clamp to the top tree instead of to the forkleg, so I guess
"officially" they are not really clipons at all....
26 September 2006:
I completed the rear suspension, added some reinforcements
to the swingarm, added a solo seat with a new exhaust poking
out from under it. Not really happy with the pipe yet, maybe
next week I will try a different style.
19 September 2006:
I added a removeable front framesection, on the left side
it is connected to the beltplate, it connects to the front
motormounts and on the rightside it sweeps up and connects
with the frame. This piece can be removed to take out the
engine and gearbox. I also redesigned the swingarm and added
some slots to the rear sprocket.
12 September 2006:
On the left side the gearbox and engine have been connected
by a beltplate, that is connected to the tubeframe. On the
right side the gearbox has a new beltcover that is also
connected to the tubeframe. The rear motormounts of the
engine have also been connected, so the whole thing is getting
turned into a stiff and compact unit because the swingarm will
not be mounted to the tubeframe but between beltplate and gearbox
cover. The rear Ohlins shock has been positioned on the right
under the gearbox leaving enough room for the oiltank. It will
need some linkage to make it push instead of pull the shock.
Oh yeah, I also added a cool gascap.........
5 September 2006:
I added a Weber DCOE carb to the Garrett turbocharger,
angled backwards to keep the bike narrow without inter-
fering with the rider's legs. Also added more frametubes;-)
29 August 2006:
I changed the pipes to tuck them in closer to the frame
and modified the left side of the frame to make more
room for them. I also had to cut some cooling ribs of
the rear cylinder. I completed the "BMW Telelever"
or "Hossack" front suspension with an Ohlins shock.
22 August 2006:
Added a Garrett turbocharger, had to move the electric
starter under the gearbox to make room for it.
Worked on frame, added a fueltank in "British Racing
Green", started work on exhaust pipes,
and modified the pattern in the perimeter brakes.
15 August 2006:
Designed a telelever front fork, like the newer BMW's
have; a single shock will be mounted behind the neck.
I also started work on the rear swingarm
(yep, it has a front swingarm too...)
making it a single sided swing that goes on the outside
of the rear sprocket. A pair of perimeter brakediscs have
also been added, now where am I going to put that turbo???
Or should I go for a supercharger?
8 August 2006:
I added some 5-spoke wheels I designed in the same sizes
as the Triumph Daytona 955I that am using as a "template"
for the handling. The front wheel is 17 x 3.5 and the rear wheel
is 17 x 6.0, tires are 120/70 ZR17 front and 190/50 ZR 17 rear.
I also added chain and sprockets and some detail views.
The bike can lean 55 degrees to each side without scraping
any parts thanks to the raised gearbox and narrow belt/clutch.
1 August 2006:
Started by using wheelbase, trail, rake and wheel/ tiresize of
a 2006 Triumph Daytona 955I, combined with a Twincam A
powerplant and a 6 speed rightsidedrive gearbox
by using wheelbase, trail, rake and wheel/ tiresize of a 2006 Triumph
