My name is Jan and I am an architecture student from a small European country of Slovenia. I am in love with the scrambler and I'm doing my motorcycle driving license atm.

Because I'm an student, my finances are limited, and I have some saving ahead of me before i purchase the bike.
In the meantime I'm planning all the modifications I will be doing to the bike.

I plan to fabricate quite a few bits, and since I'm an architecture student I'm used to CAD and also other 3d visualisation software and I make my living doing architecture visualisations.

To get to the point, i plan on making a highly detailed 3D model of the original scrambler in 3ds max, that will serve for the basis of my build.
I will make detailed sketch renderings for the final build, and i will be able to design particular elements in detail ( new rear fender, etc...)

Since this is a bit different that my usual work I'm used to, i would need a lot (50 - 100) pictures of the Bike from various angles shot with a DSLR camera(from the pictures, a simple program will build a simple 3d model, that will serve as the blue print for the detailed model that I will model myself).
The pictures would need to be shot 360 degrees around the bike, with the bike being stationary (best shoot with cloudy sky - diffuse lighting)

So if there is a kind soul with some free time, it would make my day! since triumphs are rare here in Slovenia i cant photo shoot the bike myself
The model once i finish it will be free to share (it will take me some time, with all the collage duties :) )
Have you tried contacting Triumph directly, explaining your situation, and asking for some IGES, STEP, or JT files?
The crows seemed to be calling his name, thought Caw.
