I've recently found that 3D printing has been helpful for making prototype parts and also a few final parts, such as the instrument pods. The following series of pictures show the process I've been through trying to create a new instrument console what will use new electronic clocks, but also trying to keep the spirit of the Z1 incorporated in the finished article. This is a work in progress, pods still need painting and the aluminium clock holder still has its white protective film keeping the brushed aluminium surface scratch free at this stage.

Here is the first mock-up using 3d printed console, version#1

The current status- still needs pods painted and other fittings worked-on, but seems to be coming together.

A few pictures with the latest progress. I have been working on a replacement battery box, oil catch tank and place for M-unit that allows me to use the Z1 side panels rather than the z900. Needed to work on the side panels to open then up to allow the K&N filters to be used. Finally managed to get all the parts to fit.

Just a quick update on progress, rear end now nearly complete, just waiting on the ISR rear disc, went this route since it seemed easiest to keep a brake and caliper holder and get the disc made. I've just received the rear wheel spacers and the rear brake toque arm so nearly ready to get the bike on its feet finally.[image][/image]
