I first became aware of this project and the site it is on (Endless-Sphere.com) when traffic started coming to CNCCookbook from there. I always go check out new traffic sources because it is usually something interesting. Boy did that turn out to be true!
I was getting traffic because Ilia had kindly responded when asked about good sources of information to learn CNC and machining with a link to CNCCookbook. Better still was his project–an Electric Chopper Build. I love it when someone starts a totally over the top build. It really captures the imagination and reaffirms what I love to tell people: Once you have a machine shop in your garage, you can build practically anything.
I urge you to go visit Ilia’s Electric Chopper build thread and check out the many pictures there. Meanwhile, let me tantalize you with these photos:
It’s coming together with wheels on. Still need the motor/tranny, batteries, and various other odds and ends. Looks sharp!
Chopper style suspension and forks is a thing of beauty…
The electric motor is housed in a Suzuki 6-speed transmission. Cool!
Some obligatory machining action shots machining a wheel hub…
Drilling the holes for the spokes…
There are a number of other interesting projects over on that site, so I’ll be running more over time. Sure would be fun to build something like this.
