My Minimoto Racebike.

My first installmnet in the BergerHaus Design Blog is some screenshots of my first major CAD project.  Having already learnt some CAD basics on Inventor and Solidworks I decided to model my Minimoto Racebike on Inventor to gain more experience and knowledge. I also hoped to add the Minimoto model to my folio/resume for any future job applications.  I decided on my Minimoto as it was small enough to dismantle and bring the components into the study of my home to measure and model.  I used vernier calipers and micrometers for the measuring and modelled all components as accurately as possible from their finished real life pieces. I will continue to add more detailed screenshots of individual components in the future.

The Minimoto bike itself is a Chinese made Lucky Seven with a CAG engine.  The engine features a barrel and head kit I made myself and a full circle crankshaft.  I also modified the expansion chamber and frame on the bike as well as making my own header pipe and carbon fibre muffler.  Unfortunately I don't get the time to ride my minimoto regularly anymore and my size is more suited to real sized bikes anyway.

Enjoy and please feel free to offer any comments.
