Mark van der Kwaak has been involved in the Harley scene since 1985, always designing and building his own stuff because buying it was too easy and no fun.
Since 1994 Mark has worked in the Research and Development department of a factory that manufactures stainless steel pumps, where Mark designs pump parts using advanced 3D CAD software (Pro/Engineer, later CREO from PTC) . Before that he had various other jobs involving 3D CAD work.
Mark could not resist using these advanced tools for his bike passion before and after work, and since 1996 he has been sharing his amazing CAD-designs with the world on his website www.dbbp.com,
After designing 55 "Cad-bikes" Mark has an impressive library of CAD parts that make it possible for him to make a "mockup" visualisation of a design within a few hours. He can advise builders on how to improve the handling of the motorcycle before a single bolt has been assembled on the real bike. Or a single penny spent...
Ofcourse he can also design a unique one-off Harley-based bike for you, producing both production drawings and photo-realistic images. Designing a whole bike can take anywhere between 30 and 300 hours, depending on how special you want it to be. Building a show-winning bike this way might be cheaper than the old-fashioned way because all the hand fabricated and CNC machined parts need to be made only once, after all the changes were already made in the design stage and the builder knows exactly what the finished bike will look like.
Mark is also available for smaller jobs, such as production drawings of frames or other parts, trail calculations, and anything else you can think of.
For larger jobs there is a waiting list, as Mark is usually fully booked.
Mark charges €62 per hour for his design work (+ tax)
