CAD planning

Using some of the bikes that have inspired me I overlayed the stock xs650 frame drawing in AutoCAD.
I scaled the pictures by guessing their wheel sizes.
I really like lines of hard tailed triumphs however it now appears that the xs frame is much taller and will be difficult to replicate.





I am concerned about the rear 18 being out of proportion if I run a 21 front.
I think it looks good however the 23" front wheel looks more balanced.
My issue with the 23" front is that I cant run a traditional Avon speedmaster.
Below is a 23" tire on the Harley chrome wheel.




I think the Bratsyle xs650 above is also running a 23 which I don't mind.


  I like xs650 with very little stretch in the rear.  
The girder forks make the bike a little longer.




This is the frame a drew up tracing a .jpg of technical drawings from xs650.com.
It looks right and will do for now but will need to be checked to make sure its perfect.

    1. I honestly have no idea. I predominately work with AutoCAD and Revit for architectural type works as that is my profession. In regards to work like the above I do as a hobby only to figure out problems and form solutions.
