on a 1/3 scale working model of a 1937 Norton motorcycle. The engine
will be very basic on the inside, and will look as close as I can get it
to the real motorcycle on the outside. This will run, shift, brake,
etc. So far, I have, on paper only, the engine finished 90%, the frame
95%, primary 60%, transmission 10%, brakes/wheels 90%.
Anybody out there tackle a project like this?
I would love to hear from you if you have. I am not after any
"secrets", I am just a person who enjoys a challenge building and
designing projects. By the way, the reason I decided to do this is in
1990 a machinist told me that "it would be impossible to build a
motorcycle on a miniature mill and lathe". After a little research, I
discovered he was wrong, in my opinion, and decided to prove my point.
The CAD work was done with AUTOCAD and CADKEY.
