Nathan's motorcycles.....


Recommended Posts

Next up was the Exhaust hanger brackets which also hold the pillion pegs. These are cast aluminium, sculpted to suit the shape of the bike and they weigh 700g each! I love making carbon fibre stuff so I started really stretching my brain to figure out how on earth I could DIY produce something that is robust and aesthetically pleasing. These are made for MANY other bikes, but unfortunately not the busa.

First I took some measurements, then I guessed the bulk of the profile and made a thing in fusion 360. Eventually I'd like @ThePog to mill some MDF molds for me, but before then I need to make sure I can actually draw the thing properly in F360. This is TOUGH and requires skills that I don't yet have. V1 was printed overnight by legend @Roman so I could test fit it the next day. you can see that the mounting locations are all correct but the legs of the support exit the fairing in a less than ideal location (it needs to come further out as well as further forward)

one of my main problems is that I'm good at Draftsight but my licence has expired and I dont want to spend a few hundred on renewal :-( so am struggling along.
