About tonyfoale
Biography:
Graduated in Electrical Engineering then a Masters in Nuclear Engineering, but my work has been more like mechanical engineering science. From 1973 to 1988 I had a business making chassis for racing motorcycles, many of which won championships around the world. Since then my work has been more of a consulting and educational nature. I spent 3 years from 2008 as Director of Advanced Design at Segway after giving them a seminar. I have spent a lot of my working life developing mathematical models for the analysis of various dynamic systems. I develop software for vehicle suspension analysis and I am the author of a bunch of tech articles about car and motorcycle handling as well a couple of books on chassis design and analysis. I am totally self taught in the manual arts of welding and machining etc.. Currently at 73 I'm trying to cut down on external work and spend as much time as possible building and racing classic motorcycles. I started racing in 1960.
