    Since its virtual, why not do something wild like a denim paint job. Shoot, you could do a dozen different paint schemes and not loose any investment. How about Burberry? Why not challenge yourself.

    Nice work. I've been using CAD for 15+ years, but am just ow trying to model a bike. I've started with the wheel. Working on how to copy the spokes around in the 3X interlocking pattern.
    I've used Cadkey, Solidworks, Pro-E and Autocad.
    I think Solidworks is the easiest for this type of stuff.
    Keep working at it.
    I think a Khaki paintjob with the chrome would look great!

    I'm just starting on Autocad. Your drawings are awesome! Hopefully I'll get the hang of it.

    The problem with the spokes is that you have to do 4 different pattern for each wheel, or at least 2, doing a mirror for the other side of the wheel. You need to do it twice, because the spokes are inner and outer if we talk about the hub flange. I dont know if you understood this, hahahaha, is quite difficult to explain in English.

    By the way, Im using Rhinoceros and is easier than Solidworks.

    Regards.

    What about the paint schemes used by Klien - the paint seemed to fade into different colours without an obvious transition - the best I have seen ?

    That might be difficult but I could try.

    Give me some time to prepare the paint scheme.

    This is an opportunity for someone who is going to paint his classic bicycle but is not sure of the result.

    I have a few ideas about it: clear blue and pearl white DT and ST pannels.

    But I think that maybe I could also chrome the SS and CS.

    What do you think?
    I don't know, but I love that ***** too.

    Nice work!

    Well, as I see, the second page of this thread is empty of photos or renders, so Im going to show how I would like to decorate the bicycle.
    You also can see the complete drivetrain and everything finished.

    I hope you like this as much as I do.

    Greetings from Delft, but soon from Spain.

    I think the colors look great. Is it just me or do the chainstays look too fat?

    The chainstays are exactly like it appear in the Columbus catalogue, so the size is real and commercial.

    Looks great! This kinda motivated me to play around with modeling a bike in Pro-E. Got a wheel/tire modeled so far. I'm doing a mountain bike though, and have tried a couple ways of adding knobbies to the tires... None of which have been satisfactory yet.

    This has been a real nice thread......so here's my "contribuition". My bike design method uses a different kind of "software"......I call it BAD (brain aided design), we all have it installed and can all relate. Notice how it starts as an idea and finishes with a ride, crazy how the finished product translates from the idea.

    Thanks for your contribution, Smokebikes and for sharing your BAD, hahaha; but since this thread is about 3D design it would be nice if we only post 3D computer designs or tips about this topic. I hope you dont missunderstand my words.

    Your design, is it a 04er? Haha. Nice job.

    That 24/20 looks fun. How long is the TT and how does it ride?
