Personally I use Excel. I quickly realise I can't afford to build one. Saves me loads of time!! 😁👍
For The Bold - dreegez (28 days ago)
IT sure does cost a lot more than people think.

Awsome stuff. QUESTION do you have any tips on getting rear tires inflated after mounting. I'm in a bit of a pickle all I have is a pancake compressor. I have already tried the starting fluid trick but dont want to blow my self up

What software would you consider for adequate functions thats 100% free and what would be the best lower end scale of paid version. Or is graphical design software needed?
For The Bold - dreegez (3 months ago)
Pass, no idea about free software, I use Adobe as part of my job.

Hey mate, love your channel. I'm new to building and still in planning stages. In regards to fuel tanks, are fuel tanks generally designed the same so they can be cross fitted? Or is there modification involved to make a tank fit from a different bike?
For The Bold - dreegez (5 months ago)
What you'll find is some tanks will swap, but always measure the length and mounting brackets, although they can be modified.

That looks great on how you do it. Do you do designs for other people on the side?
For The Bold - dreegez (7 months ago)
This was in Photoshop and After Effects, unfortunately I don't do commissioned designs at the moment.

Michael Reed (10 months ago)
Thank you ! Do you know if the tools required in this video can all be done in Photoshop Elements 12 (for Windows) ? Obviously for those of us not using photoshop professionally it is a relatively expensive investment for just doing one cafe racer project :) I do happen to have PSE12....
Pablo Zuniga (10 months ago)
You can always use GIMP.
For The Bold - dreegez (10 months ago)
I think it may be possible.

Hi. What edition of Photoshop are you using in vid as I have purchased PS 2018 but totally different.
you need to cmd and click on the path which will bring up a dotted selection on the screen, then paste.
David Brown (1 year ago)
Using CS 5 now but when I Copy and paste image from Path I just get a pencil outline and not the image I want.
I'm using CS5.5, but the new CC is the same principals, same tools & menus just a black background, the panels may be set out differently but you can do that yourself.

Nice tutorial man, but i got a question... Let's say that i wanted to fix the rear wheel perspective on your design so it didn't slanted to the left side, but i didn't get some good example of rear wheel, so could you come up with any tools i need to use to fix it? thanks btw for the tutorial...
Ignatius Yogananda (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez Great advice man, thanks for the help!
+Ignatius Yogananda thanks. To change the perspective of anything if you select that layer then to to edit > transform > distort that will be the way

How to design a motorcycle in computer paint shop agar ap bhi bike ke diwane h to ye video zarur dekhe https://youtu.be/Of44uqESbIM
Please send me the link from which You download the Images of bikes
I'm afraid there isn't a link as I just get them from Google then cut them out myself.
Nicolas Moerenhout (1 year ago)
When i have selected the path from the motorcycle i press ctrl+C and paste in other tab with crtl+v and i have just the path and not a copy of the image, can you help ? thx!
+Nicolas Moerenhout sounds like it could be that you need to hold 'alt' and on the paths window itself before ctrl c

I wanted a link of your videos that gives the whole detail of building a motorbike in the cheapest possible mean!!
I haven't made a video on the cheapest way of building, but I might. To be honest sometimes the cheapest way might not be the safest way. Definitely cutting costs on paint etc is ok.

Francis Luther (1 year ago)
Hey thanks for your videos they have inspired me to try build my first cafe bike do you have any suggestions.
Francis Luther (1 year ago)
Thanks I think ill start with that then.
CB250 would be a good place to start if it's simple you're after. I always say that the frame is the hardest and most expensive part of the job. So CB would eliminate a lot of work.
Francis Luther (1 year ago)
Thanks for replying, Im not sure just yet but I want something fairly simple to work on im thinking cb250 but dont know yet.
All depends what bike connects with you. Which kind of angine / frame do you like?

This channel is the best!
Joe Whitlock (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez cheers
For £3000 for the entire build you could go Honda CB or Suzuki GS for a straight forward build.
Joe Whitlock (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez ive never done a cafe racer project before, but i have £3000 to do one any suggestions for a bike?
Thank you.
Scott M (1 year ago)
The problem with designing a bike this way is you are altering the relative scale of the individual items and distorting the actual physics of the build. So, in reality, it looks cool but would not be necessarily feasible nor look like this as nothing is scaled respective to the other components. In essence, you are building a good looking bike (digitally) that cannot actually exist as designed. If you tried to put those components together it would look odd.
NinjaKat (9 months ago)
The correct way of using photoshop is to test out looks. I was thinking of doing Apes on my bike (Honda Rebel 500) and photoshop was the best way to see how they'll look on the bike and what's the angle of my hands. I ended up going for a flat bar and a custom peg position to make me lean forward more comfortably and the bike now looks cool and is more comfortable
Michael Reed (10 months ago)
TheScottiem303 - you also have to remember that all the photos culled from the net to get the various parts from for photoshop, will be different scales to start with, so rescaling is essential in any event. If you use motorcycles that are a similar size to that of your project bike (eg a CX500 for example) then you'll get pretty close !
A very valid point. I would never suggest anyone basing their decision of whether to buy a specific product like this, but for choosing colour, and basic layout / style of the bike it's handy.
ŦheŁauręnŧ (1 year ago)
Just wanted to say a quick thank you, im buying a cafe racer project bike and your channel has so much useful information, so thanks for putting so much effort into these vids
Thanks for watching and good luck with your project, what are you getting?

Can I borrow you for the remainder or my architecture degree? I'll let you customise my sr! 😁
quayinlock (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez cheers mate! One semester into my 5 year degree and I'll hopefully be 34 by the time I finish and hopefully I can pull it off! Your PS skills would be a nice advantage though
I wish I'd have done architecture. Keep it up.
Joshua Dean Guiles (1 year ago)
This is soooo helpful! But when it comes to the tools, I have Adobe CC with Photoshop 2017 so these buttons don't apply because this is an old version. I just recently got an '81 Suzuki gs650gl so your channel has taught me SOOOOO much! So, thank you! I will figure out the Photoshop buttons myself somehow. No biggie!
Have you selected the area to delete with a pen tool like in the video? That might be the best way.
Joshua Dean Guiles (1 year ago)
That's what I'm doing, and there is "eraser" "background eraser" and "magic eraser" the magic doesn't have an option that I can find to change to where it will select the space it's going to erase, it just gives me the middle finger and erases what it thinks I want when I click hahaha. P.s. I hope I'm not coming off negative at all, because your videos has taught me sooooo much!!!!! I'm very grateful for you.
If you click and hold on the tools you'll get a drop down menu to select from magic eraser to a normal one. Same with all tools where there's a little arrow in the bottom right hand corner means that there are more tools to select if you click and hold.
Joshua Dean Guiles (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez I have it on "essentials" and the magic eraser is different. That's the only part I'm really struggling with. It doesn't outline it in CC, it just erases it. Do you know of a fix?
Glad it helps. CC shouldn't be too different as I use that also, so might be that your tools panels might be set up differently.

Uchiha Itachi (1 year ago)
Hello, can I re-design my chassis? Because I want to redesign the engine locator.
Uchiha Itachi (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez Yes, I think so. I am very thankful your sharing.
That's a big job. I've got to admit. It needs to have an engineer to figure out the stress points etc. Would it be easier to buy a frame from a scrap yard that fits that engine?
Uchiha Itachi (1 year ago)
For The Bold - dreegez Oh, because I want to replace the motor with a stronger motor, so I want to make the frame fit again. Your video is great. Thanks.
You can but there is a lot of work and you need to trust your or someone else's weld.
ZeroGenesisX (1 year ago)
This is very helpful, I was hoping is it possible to do a bobber build? Really like your videos though they help a lot
Yeah absolutely, I will do in the next couple of weeks.
woden20 (1 year ago)
That 750/4 sohc engine has a dry sump, you will need a separate oil tank under the seat.
Indeed, Cognito Moto has an amazing one that fits within that frame which hides it in that 'V'. A bit expensive though.
Jon Hering (1 year ago)
I can so tell you use this all the time as you make it look so easy...lol
With practice it'll come naturally to everyone
aalok dekhane (1 year ago)

Thanks ;)
Errtu Zarathos (1 year ago)
thanx for the ideas.. as an engineer I would have hoped the scaling was in measurements.. it's easy to fit tank from other bike in PS, but really hard if it's 5cm too short IRL. but I think this video was more for the getting new ideas and how they fit together.
Absolutely, the scales aren't measured here, only a a reference. But you're right, the reality of fitting these is a lot more complicated.
Hamada Dollah (1 year ago)
awesome.... bro ur pro. am far a way from that.... by the way what you think of a GS1000 1980 for a beginner ...??!
The GS frame is a nice one to work with and the engine is simple enough (kind of) for a beginner.

I don't mean to offend you or anyone who uses photo shop. But this video made me feel more respect for the "masters of old". Who made things to happen by their own imagination.
No offence taken. It's very true, although photoshop is a useful tool it does take some creativity away. But if you can harness that creativity and use Photoshop to assist you then that's when things get good.

If you don't feel like paying for Photoshop, GIMP is an good alternative. As a 16-year old, I don't want to use money for photoshop, as I'm manipulating images just as a hobby. I've used gimp for a few years to "Photoshop" motorbikes, mopeds, cars, etc... and I'm really happy with it. It's totally free and it's got pretty much all the tools that Photoshop has.

For The Bold - dreegez oh yeah i remember ive watched that already haha. great work you do. unfortunately im still yet to find my donor bike so im doing lots of cosmetics to my 600rr for the summer instead ha
Yeah I did, here it is, but I think it'll look a little different to this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soRwnc450qY

Can this be done on gimp?
I think it can, although I've never used it, but I think the principal is the same.
