    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.

    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.

    First up: Strix X299-XE Gaming motherboard

    Well, you screwed up now. Your girl will wake up in the morning to find you took her new bike apart. You might need to buy a 2nd one.

    Hahaha, she's off it now :p


    [​IMG]

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

    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

    [​IMG]

    Once the paint was dry, i screwed it all down, and it's not perfect, but not supposed to be, it's completely hidden :)
    [​IMG]

    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.

    [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]

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

    What do you think ?
