This is an assembly I reverse engineered for a client who wanted me to reproduce the kick starter mechanism of his antique (1910s) motorcycle. These parts no longer exist so I had to come up with a design that could easily be made today, using modern standards of design. The design I came up with uses modern, off-the-shelf bushings that weren't available at the original time of manufacture. That meant that the design had to be alter slightly to lower the production cost, but the fit, appearance and function will be identical to the original pieces with the added benefit of enhanced durability over the originals due to availability of modern materials. The customer received the original 3D files I made, 2D drawings with specifications and 3D printed pieces for test fitting. The final stage will be sourcing a manufacturer for a short run (between 10 and 20 sets) of this assembly.
