Novabike
Bodywork design & production
A small group of TU Delft students designed and built the Novabike02, a racing motorcycle that runs on bio-ethanol and competes in the ONK Mono racing class. The whole bodywork design was my responsibility. A challenging task in which I tried to implement design into a functionality driven machine, and reveal as much of the engineering underneath as possible.

Specs:
- Design in Solidworks
- Carbon fibre body by vacuum infusion 
- Monocoque sandwich structured seat weighing 2.6 kg

The carbon fibre body was made with Vacuum Assisted Resin Transfer Moulding.
