To get the Nucleo System installed reliably on my motorcycle required a pretty intensive mechanical design effort, but a primary objective was to get the system mounted on wheels, so it was necessary.

I first designed a snug-fitting 3D printed bracket to mate the electronics case to the bike. This bracket actually sits on the saddle extension that rides up on the gas tank. It involves a complex multi-curvature saddle shape that stretched my CAD abilities:

 

Next I designed a base case for the electronics and battery:

 

Finally I designed a deck with a dome window to protect the electronics while allowing the LCDs to be viewed:

 

The next blog will show some pictures of how this all fits together.
