MRX

Here it is, the TYGA performance MRX kit for the Honda MSX125.
Design by Daniel Gunnarsson and I did the clay model, this was another 4 week job and even though it was very hectic, it was also very enjoyable.











Wait is over

well not just yet, or already...

I have been busy with my baby girl, now 3 months old, racing my miniGP bike and other new projects, but things are moving forward on an old project, same one as below, almost done...




?

Can´t say much about this work, but time will tell.


New tools

I buy some tools and make some my self, time to make new slicks.


Back on it..

Well I have been on it for a while, but the summer has been spent with other quite boring
but necessary things, and some racing.
Anyhow here is some shots of the 2stroke project, just letting the lines free to find a nice flow.



DONE

And here she is, the ISR-Lindman supermono racer.
Tank/seat fairing,
self-supporting subframe that hold the radiator,
front and internal air channels for the radiator,
airbox and rear fender/hugger.
All designed and prototyped by me, all in carbon.

This marks the end of my work on this project, at least as far as prototyping goes.
It has been great to work with ISR and also to work on a bike that people like
Stellan Egeland has worked on.

I will now close the workshop door for others and focus on designing and claymodelling my own bikes,
but first a bit of summer.



Great success

Happy times, the rear subframe/ radiator housing turned out good.

Not that shiny but this is straight out of mold.




Update

Here are some parts for the ISR racer, hope to have the rest done in a couple of weeks.



Almost all

This is almost all the mold parts, just a light polish before release agent and then I can start to make parts, well that is if a rather worthless german company will deliver the resin this week,
only 3 weeks after I ordered.


Finally


its over.

Happy easter

Well thats me being happy for all the extra time I get in the workshop,
yesterdays 14 hours work took me back on pace with the molds, feels great.


waxed

This is how the surfaces looked after release agents, feels good to close the book
on the plug building stage.


On the side

This weekend I had a break in the ISR work, I painted the fairings for my brothers sidecar racer,
I also did the paint-scheme design in the first "photoshop" pic.




Next stage

In a matter of a day or two I can start to apply the release agents and then start with the mold making.


The fairing is not completely modified yet, but further work will be done after the exhaust is done.

















Front view, air intake to the radiator.























Other side, throttle cables will not go down like this, they will enter the
airbox horizontally.















The fuel tank is obviously missing here, it will be under the airbox.


Intake

The air-intake for the radiator is complete, at least för the mockup fairing.

The mould




















2mm "step" with the use of sheet wax was made, and then bagging.





















 Mounted in the mockup fairing.



soon

Not long to go now before the subframe is 100%, it will be very nice to go in next stage,
waxing and mould making.


Small update

The air-intake is taking shape.


When I have a minute to spare..

Ones again, while I work on the ISR bike I have to do some clay work sometimes, to get piece of mind.
Left or right side, thats the question.
 
 

Finally

The radiator has arrived and after some adjustments it fits nicely in the subframe/housing.
Now I can speed things up with air funnel etc that connects to the subframe.

softer



Today I made the, for me, painful job of putting radius on most edges.
Painful coz I generally like sharp edges but things come alive when this is done, and I will thank my self during the laminating phase.



Meanwhile in Sweden

Whats going on, no updates in a while..
Well I am waiting for the radiator to arrive, I can not fully complete the subframe without it so
I focus on things like air intake and balancing the tank/rear dummy.
So spray filler, sanding and meticulous measuring is what I spend my days with at the moment.


Clay day

Again things on the customer bike need hours to harden etc so I get a few hours to work on my trackday bike.

Remember the thing I did on the rear on the left side?















After some days that looked, well like shit and I had to redo it,
but on the right side this time.
This is what I did today, looks better?





Big step forward

Today I made a proto carbon subframe and the tank dummy is starting to look quite good.


?

What is going on..



RVF molds

From time to time I work on the molds for the RVF racer,
a little left to do but quite good.


Make my mind up maybe?

Well I said that the design was final a few days ago, but as it turned out I found
some improvements.
Should I say it again? 
yes this is final.


Clay play

During the work on the ISR racer there are sometimes pauses when things dry or harden,
perfect oppurtunity to work a bit on my little two stroke trackbike.

Not sure it is going to look this way though..
