Added seat and "fender", Seats are tough to model in CAD!
15 January 2023
I modified the fueltank so that it has nice even gaps all around, then
added some simple graphics, fuelcaps, fuelvalve and fuellines
30 December 2022
I completed the frame and started with the tank, also added the linkage between the carbs.
The rear of the primary has been cut open for a bit more cornering angel and to show off
the drilled clutch housing. I also added a "Cannonball" electric start kit, which is a product
that I designed for W&W many years ago.

Most of the frame is now complete, except for the top of the seatpost. I like a motor to be easily
accesible so I made a removable frame section above the front head. The 2 tubes that go from the
top of the seatpost to the rear axle are tapered to match the fork legs. Also added several new views.

I completed the girder forks in the style of old Indians. with legs that are tapered from
round to oval and then back to round. I also added the rear chain, always a lot of work...

For the frame I will be using castings, with the tube sections between them slid in and then
welded, much like the old stock Harley frames.
The transmission has been lifted 1", and a rear wheel from a Triumph added. I started on the
girder forks and added short velocity stacks on the Linkert carbs. I changed the pipes so they
are tucked in more. Also added one of my Wavebars.
It has been a while since I designed a bike just for fun and I am really enjoying myself!
14 November 2022
Started this project with a Panhead engine, with modified heads to accept dual carbs and a
Vincent style exhaust. Then added a primary and a transmission, plus the wheel locations.
This is enough to determine the steering angle and trail, next week I start with the frame!
