I saw your rearsets they came up a treat. I dont like the way the cognito-moto brackets fail to follow the shape of the frame, I'll probably find out there is a good reason for the shape, but that will be after I get to test the OMM prototypeI've followed your build from the start and I'm all for making your own parts (as you know, if you taken a glance at my build thread) just wanted to inform you that Cognitomoto also sells the brackets:
Specially designed to be a perfect fit. These bolt on to the axle pivot bolt and lower motor mount. Passenger peg mounting brackets will need to be removed from frame. Made from 6061-T6 aluminum, these are made to ensure pegs are even, straight and thick enough to provide solid support. Bracket...cognitomoto.com
just in case you've missed it. Good to see that your build is still going strong Keep on wrenching!
I see what you mean about the shape following the frame. Yours will probably end up looking betterI saw your rearsets they came up a treat.

Damn, levelling up in style fella. Need me an OMM
Don't know if I'm correct, but that machine looks like 3-axis cnc mill. l made my rearsets on a 3-axis and it is an awesome tool to work with First of all, I'll encurage you by saying it isn't hard to get the hang of. When using 3-axis, you basically model in 2D, and specify height in the toolpath. With some help I was able to draw and operate the mill my self in a couple of evenings (I'm just borrowing it from time to time). Probably the hardest bit for me was finding the right endmill shape, endmill speed (revolutions) and milling speed. But that's because the owner uses it for milling wooden signs, and theres no liquid cooling (have to monitor material expansion and spray cooling by hand ).
I recon you, with your fabrication skills and understanding of 3D space/design will have it up and running and producing beautiful parts in no time :thumbsup
Amen to that - my CB build is at the 2 year point now. Crazy. Still, good to hear you're still at it - I'll look forward to seeing what you and OMM pull outta that cnc rig. Fabricating and selling your own custom line of parts? OMM Inc? Marketing man's dream. You in Victoria? Heard Melbourne has it pretty bad. Stay safe mate, keep on keepin' onHey Jimbo,
It’s been way too long, unfortunately I’ve been working overseas for the last 10 weeks, and now I’m in a quarantine hotel for the next 2 weeks before I can get back to the shed. Dam COVID gone and messed up my shit.....me and a few billion other people.
The bike was a runner, for a bit but then I found an oil leak and decided while I fixed that I would install an oil cooler, then I started messing around with the rear-sets, and foot pegs... as I’m typing this I’ve just realised I need to make up another plug for the now redundant tacho drive because the original plug I made leaks.
Hopefully I get some of this sorted while I’m home. The state I live in is looking like going into stage 4 restrictions, whatever that is.
Not sure where OMM is with the rear-set mounts, he’s been flat with other things out of late.
The build is coming on 4 years now I really got to get my ass into gear ⚙
