Introduction to Old School Engineering

Old School Engineering will look back in history and revisit many of the forgotten innovations, engineering principles and avant garde designs.

Introduction to Old School Engineering

Postby XBCoupeJota » Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:43 pm

We've started a new board to focus on many aspects relating to old school engineering and try to un-cover much of the knowledge that seems to be disappearing from our modern world.

Has modern engineering really delivered a better motorcycle over the last 30-40 years or is it using computer technology to mask the inherent design faults still to be dealt with?

It’s an interesting question and one we are going to spend some time delving into on this forum. There are many around the world who believe our industry has stood still for the past 30-40 years, with motorcycling not making any significant advances in engineering design.

We'll explore the past, interview the participants, post some great articles from days gone by and go beyond just analyzing the information, by actually working with some of the past masters, implementing lost knowledge from 40 years ago and seeing how it holds up against the latest and greatest modern technology.
