HorcikDesigns posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale Modeling(name still in progress of choice). Well, this is my first ever severely approached motorcycle MOC. Well, I tried to build some in during the last two years, but none of them was successful. Hope this one will be different. Nothing is final, everything can chance, pictures shown below are just R&D test mules (eg the front fork on blue framed bike is just quick mockup). Goals (optional, not mandatory): - fake wannabe trellis tube frame, main design feature - wild angles - load bearing engine/transmission block - engine with integrated rear swingarm mount? - as stiff design as possible - torsional, transverse, longitudal - try to make realistic steering geometry for the type of the bike I build - realistic proportions in area of saddle (ducati was too wide for my taste) - 2 cylinder ICE or EV drive (maybe hybrid or easily interchangeable*?) - belt or chain drive? (chain tensioner?) - No structural or modal FEM analysis needed! Yay!* - and one hardcore: COG in approximate correct position. ____________________________ * just to clarify it, my final project and thesis concerned motorcycle frame design that would use maximum common parts for both drivetrains variants; not real success, I would not recommend it to anybody to design or build similar frame, but I learned something about bike design, and would like to try to build bike like this at least from bricks. :D Wish me luck (or not in case you do not like E-bikes)
HorcikDesigns posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHi, After end of TC19 I started scratch building more motorcycle parts. Originally just to modify my TC19 entry, that got very early very wild, when I found out that I can 3D print parts that visually satisfy my visions of that MOC (should I call it still that way?). How it's transfornation into hybrid monster, Darth Vader of MPCs, goes on could be seen in it's separate topic here on. But I desperately wanted to build proper caferacer, that I could later usr as a template for my first motorcycle instructions. It had to be visually attractive, pure LEGO (or at least from 95% - I love that 3dprinted dark silver disc brake), and light and clean build. So, here it is. All photos : https://bricksafe.com/pages/horcikdesigns/hd.two-caferacer-motorcycle Its engine is inspired by Honda CX500. Under it is leg-operated 2 speed transmission. Hope you like it. 😉 And here a little comparison between The Purist and The Heretic. I plan to make instructions for the caferacer.
