Hi. Short update.
I'm getting closer on the frame design. Between the first version and the second I made the frame about 40mm longer. But now I have decided that 20mm is probably enough. So now the wheelbase is about 1400mm. So still nice and short.

So cool man, looking good.  Great to see the addition of some context (the cad man) to make sure its all in proportion.

Out of curiosity, why not go with a Trellis frame that Ducati built, that is tried and true, and build around it?

Either way, looks neat.

Thanks. Yea I needed to see the proportion in the cad sometime it's hard to see how big things are when your drawing. Design is still not set but slowly getting there.

Thanks. Yes that would probably be the cheapest and most sensible way to go. But how boring wouldn't that be 😆.
I need to get my mind of things So building stuff is kind of therapy for me.

I totally agree if you have the time to do it :)   I would love to have the time to build my own frame for a custom build!

Tinkering with the seat position I realized i need footpegs. So I let the 100$ 3D-printer rip. 4 hours later rightside bracket done😆. Tonight I hope I get the last parts done.

I suppose 3D printing will be the future of custom builds with parts that aren’t manufactured anymore, how strong is the actual finished product? I never imagined plastic foot pegs would stand up to much abuse

They won't last long at all, and if they're ABS the sun will eat them alive.  3D printers are for prototyping, not final products.  Something to design, get fit, then send off to a machine shop to produce.
