J.T. Nesbitt and former Confederate employee Dave Hargreaves posted a nice article about the basic forms of almost all motorcycle styles.  J.T. does some of the nicest work I’ve ever seen.  This article deconstructs all motorcycle styles into a simple arrangement of lines and arcs.  Really understanding this stuff lays the ground work for anyone wanting to design their own bikes.
