Intro: Custom Knex Motorcycle/Dirt Bike
This is a completely custom bike that I made while I was fooling around with my friends and one of them noticed that a black Y connector fit on the end of a rod and I thought it would make a cool bike axle and so I came up with this. It comes complete with a bounce spring loaded seat, wheels that spin and handlebars that turn (even though they don't do anything).
- 3 white half connectors
- 4 green connectors
- 1 brown straight connector
- 2 white V connectors
- 2 blue rings
- 6 small black Y connectors
- 1 blue rod
- 6 silver/white/black rods
- 8 black tiny rods
- 2 of the smaller wheels
- I don't know probably somewhere in between 5 - 10 minutes
- 1/5 Anyone can probably do this.
Step 1: Construct Frame
Construct the frame according to the pictures. Don't forget to make 2 of them.
Step 2: Connect Frame Sides
The pictures are pretty self explanatory. The magic of the springy seat lies in the rod with the two rings that goes on the bottom of the upper green connector and pushes one side of the handlebar connector up (but that's later).
Step 3: Assemble and Attach Wheels
This step is very easy and the pictures say it all.
Step 4: Assemble and Attach Handlebars and Seat
This step is again easy and can be done with the pictures. After you have finished that you are done. Congratulations, enjoy and thank you for building a Ginosmooth instructable.
