It is going to be build. Will be my own personal bike. The 3D model serves 2 purposes: Checking out color-decal-material combinations and the tank and seat will be manufactured from aluminum. I 3D-model tank and seat and provide a 1:1 CNC milled mock up for the craftsman who will hand make the tank and seat. Therefore the 3D model is somehow semi accurate. The bits I "only" need for visualization purposes are relatively rough. The Norton featherbed frame on the other hand is essential to fit tank and seat on. So I reconstructed (3D model) it from drawings, photos I found on the net and measurements I took myself from an original frame shown in the photo below.

970
