Turbo CB400F

This was a project that in hindsite consumed way to much time and effort. At the time I thougt thatdesigning and building a bike from scratch wihout constraints would be easier than building something with adapted bodywork/frame etc.

Turned out I was wrong. I completely designed this bike in Solidworks 3D before I ever started building it. The upside of doing things this way is that you are pretty sure that things are going to fit before you start building and you can run Finite Element Analysis design studies on parts and assemblies to ensure an adequate Factor of Safety on critical components.

The downside is the ability to continually redisign and redisign to the point where years can pass without actually building anything. A design like this is a compilation of systems, and revising one system can have a snowball effect, where just changing the length of the shock for instance, can mean a design change for the swingarm. linkages, frame mounts, bodywork, even all the way up to the triple clamps.

At some point you have to just stop and build. The first incarnation had fairing lowers.


This year I made some changes to the oil pan that effected the fairing and belly pan mounting. The belly pan survived, the fairing didn't.
