R2-D2 Scratch Build 2015

A legendary motorcycle used by the German Werhmacht Army and SS during World War Two for recon, dispatch and general transport across all fronts from Stalingrad to North Africa.

This article is more focused on the NZ350 engine, mechanics and electronics rather than a frame restoration and in particular, fitting a new piston and clutch. Follow the NZ350 engine rebuild >>

Read the R2-D2 second build blog. Learn to build your own R2, look at some ideas or buy some R2-D2 spare parts; either way you will find this section useful for any build.

Here I'll show you the full scratch build from creating the initial plugs and moulds to the finished parts.

Once the R2 is built and painted, we then concentrate on the electronics and how to get a cool look for a low price.

Finally we'll add it some A.I to give your R2 unit something special including automation, navigation, facial tracking and speech recognition!.
