From Star Trekking to Chopping

This has been my first attempt at modelling my chopper design in Solidworks. Before I spend more time on the model I would like to start it again as I was not happy with the look and balance, in particular the frame is too wide at the rear making tank look small. I also feel the frame is a little long and I have lost some of the fairing detail I originally drew in my sketches.
Sometimes I find with design that you need to go through this process to understand how the product works, before I started I didn't really appreciate the relationship of the engine, frame, exhaust, etc and now now I do, so the FusionWeld MKII will start shortly!

Motorcycles always fascinate me because they are so hardcore!
Giving time to these masterpieces would ensure you a great design someday.
