Ah, here it is, the April issue of Custombike. As always, full of time-consuming, money-guzzling and nerve-rackingly bolted together motorbikes, photographed in absolutely real, genuine reality. Fortunately, among these extremely real bikes there was a bit of space for Ehinger motorcycle to tell the story of the time, cost and nerve-saving spannering in the digital workshop. Absolutely genuine, original parts of various Flatheads, Knuckles and Pans are meticulously measured, digitally reconstructed using a 3D program and then stored on hard disks. These parts can now be randomly combined into new bikes, complete assemblies are simply replaced with a click, colours are changed by pressing a button, and the bike can be easily examined and admired on screen against different landscapes and mood lighting.
And while you’re at it, you might as well design some new parts and turn the digital design into a real mould: for accessories that are very similar and easy to attach. Granted, the whole story is told here at high speed; so check out the full 3D story at your own leisure in the April 2013 issue of Custombike.
