Ok there isnt much wood on this project but, I found that to make the sides match the best way was to cut a templet out of py wood and make it around that. then they both match. So the hole bike was made and shaped in my wood shop all except front forts and baring housings for the pedals and front end.I decided that there should be some wood on it somewere so I made the handle bars withe blood wood grips, and end pices. The lts are powerd off a 18V drill battery in the fake tank, there is also an air horn in the tank. I think it turnd out good!

Nice design and use of the wood.
I like the wide back wheel.
I have to be honest though, it would look better with 14 on the side.
I can’t stand Harvick. lol

Great looking bike! A photo of the wood jig you used to shape the frame would have been nice. Was it just to shape the parts, or to also hold them while you were brazing the tubes?

Great design.

Woodworking and metalworking go tegether like PB & Nutella. Perfect on there own but are eternally searching to be united, and man when they come together its … very cool. thanks for posting this project.
