What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

This chainslider is for the newer version Cagiva Elefant 750 or 900.  

Most Cagiva Elefant owners eventually have the problem of not being able to buy a chainslider for their motorcycle.

I want to give the opportunity for every Cagiva Elefant owner to get a new chainslider in a better material and quality than the original. The original chainsliders are not for sale anymore, so every owner has to think of something to be able to fix this.

The chainslider is drawn by measuring the original. The chainsliders of this project are made with CNC milling from black HMPE. This way it will be much higher quality and a more durable chainslider, which fits perfectly around the swingarm. I have made a remake of the original, which can be mounted directly onto the swingarm.

It will be pre-bend so that it should fit right away.

Risks and challenges

-The 3D and technical drawings are finished.
-A prototype chainslider is produced and tested.

The only real risk in completing this project, is reaching the goal. There is a minimum amount to make a production order.
