Great job. My nephews would love these. How much do you sell them for? Oh, and welcome to LJ’s.

Very unique. And at 40 hours, that’s really great!

To answer the second question, I sell these for $250. I’ve been asked by people from all over the world about shipping. They are local pickup or reaonable distance away delivery for a fee. I checked and shipping cost more than what I charge for them.
And Jordan, I should make that more clear. I an do them in about forty hours now, after I’ve built so many of them. The first few took much longer. For example, the body of the bike is built by cutting the general shape and gluing panels together. The seat comes out to eight 3/4” panels side by side. All that is screwed together. The next step is to take a variety of sanders starting with a handheld belt sander and just start cutting away material intill you shape it to what you want. Later, you take all that back apart, stain it screw it back together with glue, countersink screw holes and plug them, then spot stain the plugs.
I enjoy them though. When I get into them good, I squeeze that 40 hours work into about a three day turnaround.
