A futuristic Harley Davidson concept motorcycle I built for the "Build An Epic Ride For The Future" contest on LEGO Ideas. I thought I'd post it over here for fellows here to check out :classic:

                                                                                             (Above): An over the top render of the motorcycle riding on the highway. It's capable of self-driving, hehe

To stay somewhat fateful to the classic Harley Davidson designs, I maintained some details like the V-Twin engine (which is now oversized, and transparent), the exhausts (even though it's supposed to be emission free...), and the placement of the front suspension forks. Other than that, I guess it looks closer to a futuristic sports bike :sceptic:

I also thought that elements such as the Large PF Linear Actuators and the Mindstorms IR Sensor (which I totally wrecked it's color), without considering their functions, provide plenty of free details in such a small space. :thumbup:

I would certainly like to know what you think about this motorcycle :laugh:

Did I do Harley Davidson motorcycles justice? :sad:

Thanks for viewing!

That is a very clever design! Using the actuators and the sensor that way makes it >really< look very technical and - along with the color scheme - absolutely futuristic.

Congratulations on such a nice design.

Best regards,
Thorsten

Very original! I very much like the use of the linear actuators and the different small detail elements. Excellent! With the oversized motor it is more a caricature of a motor cycle, in the positive sense, as it does not even have a chassis. The pastel colour scheme makes the motor cycle look like a wolf in sheep’s clothing!

Very nice build with a convincingly futuristic colour scheme

Yeah, I thought I had nailed it with the colors as well. :thumbup:

Thank you! Glad to know that I also nailed the futuristic design.

Thanks as well! I wanted a shock absorber like element, and those linear actuators fit perfectly in it's size and design.

Now that you mention it, it previously didn't occur to me that this motorcycle doesn't even have a chassis. :iamded_lol:

That's a interesting way of putting it :wink: :thumbup:

I don't really see what's Harley but anyhow I like it. It's a good design and the colors looks really good to the futuristic look. Also great use of parts like those actuators.

Only one little detail, the exhaust end up near/to the rear wheel. Don't think it's 'technical' handy.

Yeah it doesn't really look Harley. :distressed:

 

I took some inspiration from the HD 2020 Live wire, which is kinda sacrilegious for a Harley Davidson, but I went with it anyways. :roflmao:
