The original YZ426F-based motorcycle
CCD450 racing motorcycle design
During his racing days, Sean campaigned a custom-built motorcycle which consisted of a Yamaha YZ426F dirt bike motor in a 125GP-style road racing chassis. While this motorcycle was great fun, lack of a starter motor and the dated design of the older carbureted engine relegated the bike to a back corner of the garage. CCD is now working on updating this concept using the engine, fuel injection, and electronics from a 2018 Yamaha YZ450FX. Various existing 125GP parts like forks, swingarm, and radiator are being 3D scanned to bring into Solidworks CAD. We will then design a custom chassis that will tie everything together to create the ultimate track and racing experience.
