Hello all. I'm new to this forum, new to design, new to the world of product design - but a designer and artist at heart. I created a new bike saddle prototype, and had a CAD guy to develop a Rhinoworks & Solidworks model as well as cut a shell out of polycarbonate on a CNC machine. Ultimately created a prototype. My hope is to sell the idea and start taking on projects (like this) I'm passionate about. I'm pitching to a pretty large bike company in late Feb and would love any advise on what to do and what not to do? I figure I'll get beat up to learn the ropes, but I'm willing to go down the path. Thanks, JAM5
This image is not a master piece but you get my idea. I really need to dig out my WACOM, lol. This is a concept 'sketch' (emphasis on sketch) of a retro modern cafe racer. It features a 1690cc V-twin engine by S&S, TTX-36R rear shock by Ohlin's, CNC machined 7075T front fork and swing arm, Carbon fiber tank and seat pan, CNC machined mirrors and controls. There's too much more to list like it's titanium braided brake lines or it's 330mm Brembo rotors and calipers. So, let's just say "Yeah it's got a HEMI". I would really love to start my own custom motorcycle and accessories company. I think I will 3D model this beats soon. The engine will take quite some time to model though. Oh I forgot my Formula One inspired front suspension which I will not show because I want to file a patent.
