Putting things together

It’s been a crazy week, I’m trying to finish the Batpod for the upcoming Mini Makers Faire at OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry). I even got a little air time on the local news to promote the event.

To install the front gun, and have the left side gun turn with the wheel, I made a UHMW bracket on the back of it, with a pivot bolt through the front end. In this video you can see the basic action, although I need a little tie-rod so that the actual tie-rod can actuate the gun pivot.

I also made one of the chain-guard/covers to protect the rider, and hide the chains. Still need to make one more for over the big sprocket. Then I threw everything together to be on TV.

Here’s the reporter Joe V. getting a feel for it.
