#52 was inspired by Ed Roth's Megacycle
26 December 2017:
I changed the seat again, added fuellines, added throttlecables
(that go into the engine cover) and a fuelvalve on top of the
tank for easy access. (my 45" flathead HD used to have the
fuelvalve on top of the tank, very practical!)
4 December 2017:
I moved the carbs about 8 inches forward to create some more leg
room, changed the seat and grips, added a ribbed panel in the front
engine cover and changed the colours a bit. Finally I upgraded my
rendering software from Keyshot 5 to Keyshot 7 so the materials
in the renderings should look more realistic.
27 November 2017:
As planned I tried some more exotic carbs this week, 2 Weber
IDF downdraft carbs. Probably way too much for a 900 cc bike.
Maybe I will change this again next week, maybe not.
I also swapped the handlebars for a set of my own DBBP Wavebars,
this I definitively like! Studying the original Roth bike the whole
thing needs more chrome, and maybe some Lake Injectors?
21 November 2017:
Suddenly we are 5 years later, and I have been doing
so much CAD work for customers that I have had no time
for my own Cadbike projects, not that I am complaining!
Anyway I decided to give one of my old projects an update.
I chose this one because I was never completely happy with
it, and started by changing the tank graphics, the pipes and
the top engine cover, maybe I should try some crazy carbs?
17 October 2012:
Added electrics/batterybox, throttlecables
kickstarter pedal, various nuts and bolts and
added a black outline between the blue and
the aluminum on the engine cases.
Changed the seat back to red.
20 September 2012:
Added shifter, brake linkage, frog-
eye taillights and front axle , changed
pipes again and am still experimenting
with the colors.
5 September 2012:
Decreased the metalflake a bit, painted
part of the engine cases sortof like an
old VW van, added footrests, rear brake
arm and rear axle. Added extra views.
29 August 2012
Added seat, changed pipes,
modified lower frame tubes to
follow curve of seat, added tank
graphics and metalflake paint
17 July 2012:
Added headlight, grips, centerstand,
Amal carbs, seat frame and modified
frame, pipes and rear fender.
11 July 2012:
Added handlebars, pipes and
rear fender this week. Experimenting
with finish on engine, shiny or not?
6 July 2012:
New front downtubes on frame, plus
molded neck and tank. Added a set of
raked Triumph forktrees.
28 June 2012:
Added Triumph shrouded forks,
started reshaping frame, added
mounting bracket for shaft drive.
23 June 2012:
Inspird by Ed Roth's Megacycle, but this
version has a BMW R90S drivetrain.
Started with the frame of Cadbike 33, an 18"
Firestone on the back and a 21" Avon Speed-
master on the front.
