Time flies when you have a day job and a family!
However, I have been doing a lot of after hours work on engine components.
I've revised the printed metal reed valve to accommodate a custom built 30mm Lectron carb, Absolutely floored with the quality and design from Lectron, I'll have much more to share soon in the carburetion realm, Possibly a kit or two based around these fantastic items.
I designed a custom Reg/Rec cover for the Emily the Strange bike. Since this is an extreme cut-down with no external battery tray or Reg/Rec mount I was struggling a bit with mounting locations. I finally decided to CAD an external mounting plate using water-jet cut 7075 aluminum and a cover in 3D printed Nylon. The Nylon cover came out quite well using the newest HP Multi-Jet fusion process. It is very robust and highly cost-effective compared to SLS. The cover is a bit textured in its finish but that works well with the wrinkle paint on this bike. Overall, I'm...
So, what to do if you decided to run a T5 horncast on a P-series frame? Or just want to use a larger motorcycle horn with the standard horn cast? Mounting the horn becomes an issue. Here is a prototype horn mount I came up with.. No welding brackets on your frame, Simply clamps onto the steer tube. Machined and Water Jet cut from Aluminum and Stainless Steel. I'll test this out for a bit and hopefully make a few to sell soon. -CaseyZ
Trying out 3D printed Stainless as a material for reed manifolds, looks to be very promising. This one is custom designed for the Emily The Strange cut down bike, It's had the fan shroud removed from the engine case so only fits this bike, but if all works well, I'll redesign for production engines.
Amerivespa is going on right now in Seattle. I have been working like a mad man trying to get this custom P200E cut-down completed in only 2 month's time. I'll write more in detail later. Just need to put the finishing touches on it for tomorrow's show n' shine.
