  1. Front fork
  2. Front fender
  3. Rear fender
  4. Gas tank
  5. Oil tank
  6. Front-wheel
  7. Rear-wheel
  8. Chain
  9. Engine

  11. Kickstand
  12. Transmission belt
  13. Pedal

These parts are modelled and assembled into American chopper

 


COMPONENTS WITH RENDER IMAGE:

1  |  FRONT FORK 

        A motorcycle fork is the portion of a motorcycle that holds the front wheel and allows one to steer. For handling, the front fork is the most critical part of a motorcycle. 

         A fork generally consists of two fork tubes (sometimes also referred to as forks), which hold the front wheel axle, and a triple tree, which connects the fork tubes and the handlebars to the frame with a pivot that allows for steering.

2  |  FRONT FENDER

     Sticky materials, such as mud, may adhere to the smooth outer tire surface, while smooth loose objects, such as stones, can become temporarily embedded in the tread grooves as the tire rolls over the ground. These materials can be ejected from the surface of the tire at high velocity as the tire imparts kinetic energy to the attached objects. For a vehicle moving forward, the top of the tire is rotating upward and forward and can throw objects into the air at other vehicles or pedestrians in front of the vehicle.

3  |  REAR FENDER

    Its function is same as the front fender is placed over the rear fender

4  |  GAS TANK

 A fuel tank (or petrol tank) is a safe container for flammable fluids. Though any storage tank for fuel may be so-called, the term is typically applied to part of an engine system in which the fuel is stored and propelled (fuel pump) or released (pressurized gas) into an engine

5  |  OIL TANK 

      It is used to store the engine oil for lubrication due to higher operating temperature it needs to be cooled or else engine parts get bulged and damaged.

6  |  FRONT WHEEL

      Floating discs have better disc centring with a fixed calliper. A floating disc also avoids disc warping and reduces heat transfer to the wheel hub. Front wheels are connected with disc brakes and  mounted on the front fork and act as the driving wheel which gives direction control

7  |  REAR WHEEL

     wheels are made to cope with radial and axial forces. They also provide a way of mounting other critical components such as the brakes, final drive and suspension. Wheels, and anything directly connected to them, are considered to be unsprung mass. Traditionally motorcycles used wire-spoked wheels with inner tubes and pneumatic tyres in this we used the alloy

8  |  CHAIN 

A motorcycle chain is a roller chain that transfers power from the engine to the drive-wheel of a motorcycle, thus propelling it. Most motorcycle chains are made from plain carbon or alloy steel, but some are nickel-plated to prevent rust, or simply for aesthetics.

9  |  ENGINE 

     Four-stroke: they are lighter, mechanically much simpler, and produce more power when operating at their best. But four-stroke engines are cleaner, more reliable, and deliver power over a much broader range of engine speeds. In developed countries, two-stroke road-bikes are rare, because—in addition to the reasons above—modifying them to meet contemporary emissions standards is prohibitively expensive. SO to overcome these advantages we used the four-stroke engine

10  |  CHASSIS

 The frame is typically made from welded aluminium or steel (or alloy) struts, with the rear suspension being an integral component in the design. carbon-fiber, titanium and magnesium are used in a few very expensive custom frames.

 The frame includes the head tube that holds the front fork and allows it to pivot. Some motorcycles   include the engine as a load-bearing stressed member; this has been used all through motorcycle   history but is now becoming more common
