Pocket Rocket - Turning a quad bike, into a gaming/show system!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 


Welcome to my Project logs of 'Pocket Rocket'

What's the deal ?
For this project, i'll be transforming a brand new 50cc mini quad bike into a full gaming/show system.
I'll be removing the engine and replacing it with the motherboard and GPU's
I'll then replace the exhaust system with reservoirs and tubing.
There's still some stuff to figure out, but very soon i'll get the quad and figure out all that.

Photo's!
So... Here's some photo's of the quad, it's due for delivery on monday, excited to start.



So the quad measures at 1 meter long, 60cm wide and 60cm tall. (Tons of space!)
One of the first things i'll be doing is removing the panels from the quad and spraying the underside of them, hate seeing that white.

Update 1:
Quad bike has arrived, and put together.
Currently deciding on where components should go.





Will be removing the engine a little later tonight, when the kid goes to bed smile.gif

Thanks for checking out my logs

time to get some work done.
After removing the engine, i had space to start working on the motherboard plate.


So i measured, cut to size, drilled little holes for the standoffs, and then drilled holes in the quad chassis, to secure the tray.

Got bored waiting for the paint to dry haha



Once the paint was dry, i screwed it all down, and it's not perfect, but not supposed to be, it's completely hidden smile.gif


Now that it's fitted, i added the MB, and secured that down.
Perfect fit, Literally no spare space lol



Will update more as i go.
Thanks for looking

While waiting for the Thermaltake goodies, i got to work on some of the details.
Like this!

I used to have a motorbike, always kept my helmets, this was an old one, So.. I cleaned it down.

I then sprayed the whole helmet black, and temporarily fitted 2 6w speakers inside the helmet (Will later affix these properly)
Video here:

I personally think the helmet adds so much to the build, Just need to decided exactly where i want to put it, front of the seat or back.

Back to work on the helmet/Sound
Sprayed the visor black
And started to cable manage the 3.5mm jack cable and power cable.



vinyl wrapped the side vents, and cut the project name and my name, stuck on the visor.


Overall, it adds some really nice aesthetics to the project.



What do you think ?

So far i've only played around with some stuff and can say this... Holy ****! lol
The pump looks like it was purposely designed for this quad.
It fits the build so well.

Then the twin reservoirs.... Damnn... this wasn't a planned build, meaning i didn't spenmd hours going over design ideas thinking carefully where to put stuff.. everything has gone on instinct and so far it's gone well.

UPDATE!
CPU block has arrived!
The Thermaltake Pacific W4 PLUS

Mighty fine looking too!





Now we just wait for the radiator, and the quad project will be complete!
Sorry about the delay in updating, it's been a hellish few weeks, multiple projects in the works.

Thanks for looking

Looks like it's coming together pretty well so far! I agree, the pump definitely looks very "at home" mounted on that quad, and those reservoirs fit in nicely in place of the exhaust. thumbsupsmiley.png
