    Now that is some lovely work. Eager for some complete bike pics.
    Did you sort out all of the kinks that came up after the initial test drive?

    Love it, looks better than the shiny finish I was expecting!

    Do a Go Pro time lapse of assembly!:D

    I think so. I had a pretty good list of work-off items and got a lot of help so I am expecting few issues after final assembly.

    I am planning to "TRY" never done one but I was experimenting yesterday. I'll have to use my iphone (no got gopro). I've seen Lyndon Poskitt's and they are fun to see it build up.

    I'm trying to lay everything out so the assembly goes smooth. If I follow my typical routine there would be long periods of inaction as I went off looking for a part.

    Lay all your parts out like an Airfix model, that would look awesome!

    You can just edit out any gaps!



    Like that!

    Cheers

    Fantastic.... full circle. You've gone from mental dreaming to computer aided drawings to crayons. :clap

    Well I used the native iphone time lapse and it compresses any length video to 20-40 seconds. This is about 3 hours of work.



    I downloaded an app that will let me have more control so part 2 may get better.

    And, no I am not going to dissassemble to redo the video.

    enjoy

    Do you know the time interval between pictures?
    5 sec, 10 sec, 60 sec...?

    Hmmm, okay
    If exactly 3 hours...
    Which is 10,800 seconds, divided by the 24 second run time equals 450 images.
    450 images split into 10,800 seconds comes back to one every 24 seconds.
    That seems like an odd count for an automatic time lapse.

    And that is if there is only one frame shown per second which I think is way beyond our ability to see.
    Aren't most videos something like 30 fps?

    Unless of course, my math is off which wouldn't surprise me a bit. :-)

    Well, if shot at 30 fps, for 24 secs that equals 750 frames, split up into 10800 seconds comes in at 1 frame every 15 seconds, which seems a bit more reasonable

    Well I am trying it with my DSLR - took 2000 frames and I'm going to have to edit as I only captured progress (partial) on wiring harness install - I'm afraid that is going to be a pretty boring video.
