Default 2003 Harley V rod Custom Chopper

Well...the title says it all... decided to try something new... a custom Vrod... Haven't decided if i want to give it a theme or not...if I do, I want to give it a nightmare b4 christmas theme... I am kinda overdoing the mechanical aspects...as you can tell from the huge dual brake disc...what do you think so far?? I decided to take my time on this, instead of getting it finnished in a really quick amount of time like i usually do. Thanks,
Brian

I have seen these on a few cars. very rare.



I think car rotors have less cross drilling done on them so warping wont occur

nice pic roach yeah it might warp in real life...actually, I haven't seen it on a bike b4, but I thought that it looked cool... Hey, haveing a problem deciding how do do the forks...wondering if I should make the design, with double forks with the springs on top...or if I should do the more traditional..with the single....what do you think??

Brian

i know how you feel ckyuk. But hopefully ill be able to do that stuff someday.

I think you should make a more traditional style forks, no springs.

I don't know how he did it but i would extrude a cube along a curve the same shape as the groove and then duplicate it around an axis in the center of the disc so they are all in the right place. Then use a Boolean operation to subtract the shape from the disc. I'd also do the holes in the same way.
