This month the Sport Quattro made it to the front page of Retro Cars magazine. A beautiful photoshoot at Prescott hill, and a proper writeup of the project makes an interesting read.
Porsche Typ64 3D engineered sheetmetal buck. Berlin to Rome racer
The question from the customer was to 3D engineer the Porsche typ64 Berlin to Rome race car. The technical drawing from 1938 and hundreds of photos where to only reference I had to reproduce this correct shape. The buck is used to shape aluminium bodywork to. This way you can create an entire body from nothing but flat sheets of aluminium and craftsmanship.
It was also a concideration to create a buck that can be disassembled easily for saving room, and being assembled in 3 seperate section: front, middle, and rear whilst maintaining structural rigity.
The buck includes small details like shutlines, window, and wheel arch lines. This makes life a lot easier for the metalworker to find exact measurements.
CB750 brat style motorcycle
This project was for a client who's bike caught fire in the middle of amsterdam. The bike was severly damaged and needed a lot of TLC to get her on the road again. I've changed the bike to a brat style and repaired the bike shorted wiring loom. I fabricated a new lightweight aluminium front fender from scratch. The rearend was cut off to create a brat style end. Mounted a narrow tank from a CB550, and fabricated a new brown leather seat from scratch. Along the way I've also upgraded to a modern regulator/rectifier because that was all shorted out in the fire. It was topped of with a bright, white, black and orange paint scheme. The client now drives his eyecathing CB750 in style right in the heart of Amsterdam.
