GoldwingDocs Bike PC: An Announcement

Post by WingAdmin »



The Bike PC is a small multifunction computer for your motorcycle that has a gear position indicator, thermometer, voltmeter, controls your heated gear, and more. I designed and built it 9 years ago. Today I am making an announcement regarding the Bike PC and the future of the device as a project. I talk about the history of how the Bike PC came to be, demonstrate its functionality, and talk about the announcement in this video:

I never released the Bike PC as a product, due to the inability to support it. However, I am now releasing the design, circuit, board layout and source code to the public under a GPLv3 license for anyone to build, use or modify as they see fit. You're free to use these materials in any way that you like, you can modify the design and release it yourself (as long as it is released with the notation that it is a modified version of the original). You can NOT commercialize the design or manufacture the units from this design commercially.

Interested? You can download everything: schematic, PCB board images and design files, source code and construction images here:

Cool that you are releasing all this for those wanting to try it.

While I would like something like this, I just know I would never get around to it due to it due to the skill level required to build it and install it.

Since a couple of days i'm working with an arduino nano to show the gear positions of my SC47. While I was working on it, I figured that I could also display the voltage. A short time later, I wondered if I could save the driving time...

It looks like I'm going through the same evolution as you. I hope that i will need less than 11 years :D :D :D

Yes, because the 83 Aspencade (with the digital dash) has the full gear position switch, not just a neutral switch.
