Honda CB1100
This Honda CB1100 is as close as I was able to get to the real thing.
About this creation
Its frame (made of beams rather than tubes and axles as a matter of solidity) is a close to exact match of the original frame's geometry.











The bike also features the original's line-4 engine and 4-in-1 exhaust system, chain transmission, traditional swingarms and rear suspension.









It comes with a side-stand and a center-stand, and a lot of signature details so characteristic of this neo-retro rendition of the mythical naked "CB750 Four" such as the large round headlight, the blinkers, the round mirrors, the analogic speed and rpm dials, the mudguards (the rear one should be round but that could not be accommodated with the bricks I have), the battery covers, and so forth.























The one aspect which really departs from the real thing is the primary transmission which connects to the engine in the middle of the crankshaft. This has two benefits: (1) it avoids that the transmission gears protrude on the side of the motorbike, and (2) it allows to offset the four pistons in four different positions (0°, 90°, 180° and 270°). Plus the geometry of the engine makes it easier to replicate the exhaust pipes nicely.





The LDD file I provide is only approximative. It doesn't include the corrugated piping of the exhaust system, it lacks the transmission chain, and the expanded large shock absorbers which aren't availalbe on LDD are substituted by axles. Moreover, since building the frame requires a little bit more flexibility than what the LDD tolerance allows, some pins and connections are missing where the virtual beams don't align as well as on the live model. Nevertheless, if you refer to the photos, you should normally be able to spot the missing parts.

That's a really nice bike, a joy to behold. Very nice primary drive and crankshaft layout. Particularly impressed by the inclusion of a side-stand AND a centre stand ! Excellent.
