Mechanical engineer at Engenious Design. I love 3D modeling with SolidWorks and being an active member of this community. I am addicted to motorcycles and like cafe racers. I have a 2006 Triumph Thruxton. My dream bike to build would be to create a Norton/BimotaTesi inspired frame (left with raw tubing brass welds exposed) with a Vincent motor cafe racer. Hope to have this modeled or built some time. I also now have a GrabCAD addiction.
