A few weeks ago we featured LM#1 by Dab Design (click here). Dab’s founder Simon Dabadie is building a series of Honda Dominator based trackers and scramblers based around his range of 3D scanned and printed components. LM#1 utilised flax fibres as structure for the fuel tank and light incorporating number board but this bike, LM#2 features a more traditional fibreglass technique.
Hit the link above for a more in-depth explanation of the process.
It doesn’t take genius to work out from these photos that every component of the donor has been either replaced or stripped and completely refurbished, including the bombproof 650cc single. This now breathes through a K&N filter and Supertrapp silencer.
As with the other bikes in the series a new subframe supports a hidden battery box and wiring harness inside the saddle. Despite the gloss black number board appearing solid, when the high output LED array behind is fired-up strips of light shine through.
It may seem like we’ve done a bit of a Bike Shed Lite on this feature but most of the ground was covered in the original feature. What is new is that there’s a chance of winning one of Dab Designs’ super neat builds via a lottery. Tickets are €20 each and entries are open for the next couple of months.
In the meantime we’ll be swinging checking the tolerances on Simon’s first build at Bike Shed London 2017 in just a couple of week’s time.
