We are MotoMinded
MotoMinded LLC is a small but efficient company. Our passion is to imagine, design, produce, and sell clever products from our moto minds. Take a look at our shop below!
Happily located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, we are lucky to have some of the best places in the country to play on our 2 wheeled machines.
Our small design & production studio has opened up a niche of products that fit between the one-off custom and higher quantity production runs.
- There is a slight trade off for now, our lead time. We create, package and ship products based on demand. We will try to keep ahead of orders and carry some stock for our popular products.
We are Technology Minded
We use a few advanced manufacturing techniques to produce products in house along with outsourced billet CNC vendors. Current capabilities include Additive Manufacturing, Laser Cutting and etching, CNC routing.
We have a small army of 3D printers. The Additive Manufacturing process (AKA, 3D Printing) is different than traditional manufacturing processes. Here are the major differences.
- No commitment to expensive plastic injection dies for every design.
- Can quickly react to vendors and bike manufacturers yearly design changes.
- Very little manufacturing waste. We also recycle our plastic prototypes and parts that do not make quality control.
- Inexpensive machines to operate and maintain.
- Varying surface finish. Our parts are not perfectly smooth and often have layer lines. This is due to the 3D printing process we use. The support frames that are structural and not easily seen when mounted on the bike have a rougher finish than our bezels. Bezels are aesthetic so we create these at a much slower speed. We also finish one surface of the bezels.
- We manufacture with 3 different plastics. ABS for most color and aesthetic parts. PC-PBT alloy for structural parts (A compounded blend of Polycarbonate and PBT). Ninja-Flex for seals and gaskets.
