The past few weeks have started to see some aspects of the CAD model come together so I'll be uploading more pictures of the completed pieces soon
For now, we have the rear subframe, which will be manufactured out of tubing and waterjet cut pieces.
As we are always on the quest to reduce weight and complexity, the subframe has been designed with only three main tubes in triangulation, opposed to the usual four used by most manufacturers.
The fabricated piece on the rear has multiple purposes. At the front, it supports the rear of the seat pan, at the rear fixes to the rear light unit making the whole piece rigid, and the mounts on top act as a bodywork support.
