I bought one of the most ugly bikes ever produces at an auction for only a few hundred bucks. With an idea in mind to remodel the entire bike creating a 2018 styled café racer. And use my 3D printer to implement engineered custom parts in different ways than normally expected within custom motorcycles.
Redesigning and eliminating almost everything besides the engine and partially the frame and swing arm shaving off about 60kg from the entire bike. Modifying a GSXR 1000 suspension set up to fit the CX as well as its brake systems. A custom rear wheel with excel rim, custom aluminum sub frame with integrated lights. The original gas tank narrowed by 8cm and reshaped with a complete new tunnel to fit the bikes line. All electrical components selected to rewire the entire bike as minimalistic as possible getting rid of old and bulky analog components such as the coils replaced by direct coils on the heads. Instead of hourly labor decided to digitally engineer the fenders and a tank emblems as my perspective is that 3Dengineering in customization is underestimated as a craft and profession, it takes knowledge functional and physical understanding and skills to create aesthetic pleasing designs. This gave me the excuse of using my 3D printer to create parts and show that this technique is creditable for functional customizing parts.
