I'm not a professional mechanic or builder (35 years in the computer industry).  This is my first attempt at building a bike and  I had no outside help.  I used the GTLAR (Gee, That Looks About Right) design methodology and the IDBO-IDGO (It Doesn't Bolt On - It Doesn't Go On) fabrication methodology.  I designed the "keyless" ignition switch -four, six position rotary switches wired in series resulting in a 1,296 possible combination lock.
