Carbon Fibre Swingarm construction for Carbon Bonneville – Step 7

Posted on 11th August, by John_Admin in Cafe Racers, Project Bikes. No Comments

Step 7: wrap carbon reinforcement of the whole section

In this post you can see part of the process of competing the Delta pivot mounts and further wrapping of the swingarm.

You will also see that I needed to provide clearance at the centre point of the swingarm as the swingarm would have fouled on the main frame at the expremities of the pivot range.  The clearance was provided by cutting out a section of the reinforced tube and then bonding in anouther piece of carbon tube that I had made earlier for this purpose.

 

 

 

 

Next post will include details of the machining of  swingarm pivot bearing housings and the rear spindle carriers that will be bonded into the ends of the main spas

So here is a later version of my early pencil sketches

The next step is to have the bike rendered so you can better see the dtails and the colour scheme. In this case there were 2 sketches done, … Read More »
