    Hey Brian. Nice case you got there. I really like how you're building it factory style from scratch, nice work.

    Anyway, I was looking at that huge LunagenLabs logo, and I couldn't help but think what the motto in Latin meant.

    As far as I can see, it's "Fabrica sans ______________"

    Using some simple translation, it comes out to "Made without _______"


    Just wondering, cause I like it. Very nice case, keep up the good work!

    Wow, you're the first to really try to figure that out. That's 'fabrica sans finnium'. It's essentially "creation without limits" :D The Lunagen Labs name itself actually was mentioned in a comic book in the mid-90s and I thought it was cool. Break down to luna-gen and it means "created at night". Fitting, considering my screwed up sleep schedule :lol:

    Thanks for all the good words, guys! Progress on this is a little sporratic, since it gets pushed around by my 'real' projects. Ie, projects I get paid for :naughty: I'm currently in the process of making a watercooling add-on for a Lian Li PC60/70. That'll be a good test run for making this case. I'll definitely keep you guys posted on any new work on this.

    Oh yeah, atomikhawk, here's a couple design studies of my car project:

    the car is nice dude and it looks like some nice 20' rims you got on there, air bags would be sweet since you could lower it and raise it :thumb:

    nice job on the pc.

    I haven't bought any wheels for the Caprice yet. They're expensive as heck and I haven't found any that are perfect yet. They'll likely be 18s. I've been thinking about designing my own wheel centers, kinda like in the drawing there, and having them machined and welding into blank rims. That's how the billet wheels are made. Finding the blank rims and people to weld them isn't hard. I talked to a guy in Cali about having the rear wheel on my Katana widened and he said he could also do billet wheel assembly. I'd just need to buy some big slabs of aluminum and find someone with a big cnc mill to cut them.

    Back on subject.. this case is currently on hold until I finish a couple 'real' projects. You know, the ones you get paid for :thumb:

    ohh katanas 600's and 750's nice sports bikes, thought heavily about getting one of those but went for an ex 500 and now that bike is in cali with my bro so I'll probably be buying a f4i or something. Marcello where abouts are you located in michigan? aren't you north of grand rapids? the reason I ask is that I got some milling work I need done on my project (check the sig)

    forgot to ask; Don't most decent bike shops carry billet aluminum rim blanks? The type used to mike custom rims on chopped bikes? Gotta be careful tho, custum wheels can add a lot of unsprung weight to a bike which will give it unfavorable handling characteristics

    I'm in Clare. Right where US10 and 27 (127) cross. Drop me a message at marcello at lunagenlabs dot com and let me know what you need done. I'd love to help out on the crazy radio project :D :naughty:

    My Katana is actually an '85 unit I imported from Canada, since the '84 to '86 bikes weren't brought to the US due to cc restrictions. Since I don't have any recent case updates, here's a couple bike pics :hehe:

    Got a modified Yoshimura race pipe on there. The wheels and front end are from a '95 Katana and the front calipers are from a 90s GSXR.

    just to let you know, it will probably take him more than just a few days to get some more done on the project considering the immaculate detail hes putting into it.
