Welcome to the Bay Area, Bahador!  Your project sounds way cool -- and Noisebridge is a great place to be doing projects like this, where you will be learning a lot as you go along -- and hopefully sharing with others, and helping them learn as you go along.  The main thin is that we may not have space to keep the engine around while the project is in progress.   Anyone have any ideas on where to keep the engine when Bahador isn't working on it? Best,Mitch.

Well, simply by walking into the space you have as much authority as I or anyone else (members are for the legality of it all). IMHO it's not so bad. If I catch you doing it, I may ask you questions because I want to be a mechanical engineer :)

hello,
my name is bahador nosrat. i've known about noisebridge for a couple of years now, but only recently moved to the bay area and now finally have had the opportunity to drop by. i would like to ask the noisebridge community's opinion about a project i would like to tackle, and whether or not noisebridge is an appropriate place to tackle it.





i have a vintage 450cc motorcycle engine that i would like to rebuild and modernize. among other things, i would like to add electronic sensors (temperature, rpm, current gear...) monitored by an arduino mega hooked up into an android device via the android open accessory development kit.





the engine itself is not very big. i would estimate that it's dimensions are less than 1.5ft wide, 2ft long, and 3ft tall. it weighs less than 150lbs. i would get an engine stand with wheels for it so that it can be easily rotated and moved. i would not run it in the building itself, only clean it, rebuild it, and eventually mount sensors on it. there would be no gasoline or oil, except for what little is left inside the engine after draining it. the only chemicals, if any, that i would bring would things like: cleaners, degreasers, lube, loctite, wd40, and grease.





a little about me: i'm in my mid twenties. i was born in san diego, and just moved to berkeley this past august. i work for the lawrence berkeley lab, studied security studies as an undergrad, and hold an ms in gis. i've mostly worked in biology for the past several years doing gis and bioinformatics, up until recently, for a marine biology lab in san diego.





as far as my background goes, i have experience in:- cars and motorcycles- soldering- basic circuitry- programming- databases- gis




- bioinformatics- computers
thanks for your time, and i hope to hear back from you soon. take care.
