Once we started using SolidWorks to design a covering for the tray so that stuff could be carried safe from weather and theft AND design a windshield or cabin for the rider, the handlebars and steering presented a design concern. How do we steer the bike without crushing the rider’s hand against the windscreen/ cabin? And, how do we design the cabin /windscreen so that the turning radius is not restricted to shallow turns?

So I have reached out to an engineer to help me think through this design challenge.

It does not make sense to go forward with fabrication or powder-coating until we can do all of the fabrication at once.
