wow – that is awesome, Patron !! thanks for sharing.

I lived in San Pablo City for 6 months or so and never saw anything like that !!!
if I had, that would have been my main hangout just to learn something new.

When they get pedals, chain drive, and gears… then they are going to REALLY have something!!!... (-:

...and I bet their tools are pretty primitive also…

Hope you got the wood stove cranking. Looks like cool weather, up there…

Even though these bikes are not motorized they would sure open some eyes at the Harley Davison rallies in Sturgis South Dakota, Gilroy CA, and the other popular sites.
Some very creative carving!

I think they mean that the parts aren’t machined, just worked by hand, but your point is well taken.

I’m also curious as to how “abo” these guys really are. There is a lion as the body of one of the bikes. Not that it takes away from the skill of the carvers. I wonder what brand of tools they use? :D
