CAD version here


Ths week we are making a sidestand for Cadbike 31. Instead of doing a CAD model first as we usually do, we decided to mockup a simple sidestand in steel first to figure out the dimensions and then later use that as a template to make a nice looking stainless steel version.


We are using a system with a spring and ball to click the sidestand in up and down positions. On the stainless version this will be hidden completely.


Some pictures of the stainless steel version in progress, the only CNC we used was the large radius in the "leg", the rest is all done on conventional machines. Still a lot of shaping to be done, we want to end up with an organic looking part, to be continued!
