  1. Sorry to be lazy that I copied the description of this build from the Ideas project page. While the guidelines doesn't allow promoting, I just left a single link here. But I think Ideas platform is not the right place to gather real comments and demands about improvement of my MOC, so that I can keep make it better, and no place is better than here among the real Technic fanatics :D As both LEGO and classical bike enthusiastist, I was always trying to make a functional but not too out of scale engine for Technic's motorcycles. After a while digging in the Technic world of parts, I ended up with a new engine block which has proper size compare to LEGO's motorcycle's scale, created by normal engine block part and a little touch of decoration. And as a Cafe Racer fan, I tried out the new engine block into the most timeless design trend of the motorcycle world - a cafe racer. My biggest reference was Honda 1965 CB77's 2 cylinder engine, intergrated into a modern design. To design a Technic set is not just about aesthetic, construction and function are more crucial factors. The set should be quite playable, that means sturdy, visible mechanisms and their smooth movements. Those are my guidelines in the whole process of designing this model, and the results are these properties, listed below: No illegal connections. I tried to design without those creatively part placements, as a real LEGO's designer would do, and keep the playing age restriction as low as possible. Realistic functioning 2-gears gearbox and shifting mechanism. Working front and rear suspension. Working cardan axle for smooth power transmission from rear wheel to engine's crankshaft and vice versa. That's mean this bike can be pushed by hand to see working engine, and player could also connect the motorized power parts with the crankshaft and see it drives the wheel. Credit of stepper mechanism in gear shifting belongs to Lego Technic Mastery https://www.facebook.com/Lego-Technic-Mastery-345425069222914 And I will post this video of function first on Eurobricks before update it on Ideas, because you guys deserve to see it first xD

    [MOC] BMW Cafe Racer

    Hello fellow builders. I'd like to introduce my new creation. This time I decided to make a light-weight motorcycle - Café racer. So I have recently bought Moto Cross Bike (42007) with the idea of putting it on my shelf, because I really think it‘s a great set, but then I have decided to modify it. I was inspired to do the cafe racer look, since it‘s my favorite style. This one is loosely based on a BMW motorcycle. I wanted to create a boxer engine that BMW bikes are known for. The Engine came out a bit different than what i originally intended because I wanted to give the cylinders a more complex look, but I could not manage to do it, maybe because of the lack of pieces. This cafe racer may not be as detailed as my previous models. There aren‘t many details on the engine this time, the gearbox takes a good part of the engine space but in the end it turned out pretty well, having a clean and simple outlook of the classic motorcycle era. Inspiration: BMW R75/5 DS Features including front and rear suspension, Two speed gearbox (with neutral first and second), cardan shaft, working steering, a V-2 aircooled BMW boxer engine with moving pistons, and a kickstand as well as other smaller details: a big fuel tank, exhaust,a seat, headlight. The handle bars have a quite interesting looking grips, I also added a side mounted license plate. Thanks for taking your time, please tell me what do you think about it .
  3. Hello everybody, it is nice to be here, This is my first ever post here in Eurobricks and my second Lego technic motorbike MOC/revamp. So basically this is the 8051 Lego technic set, but this version should look more like a café racer. So what do you think guys?
  4. Hi to all, This is my last creation Cafe Racer style motorcycle based on Moto Guzzi. It has simple clutch system with longitudinal V2 engine and cardan drive. No yellow parts used by the way Short video about simple clutch system. Comments and critics are welcome
  5. I can't remember where I found these photo's. They are of an awesome 80's MOC, complete with custom stickers - not by me, I wasn't born.
