Project Information

I had decided to expand my wood working horizons by trying something new. I started this project before the bench, but was ordered to complete said bench prior to my visiting in-laws. Once the in-laws gave there sober nod of approval on the bench, my Sweet Pickle Princess gave me a temporary hall pass to proceed with the bike. Many days later and and I am the proud owner of a wooden motorcycle ;)

...follow me on a journey to travel 7,500 miles on foot http://theappalachiantrail.blogspot.com/

ps this was made from recycled oak, Ikea shelving and some mail ordered padauk/walnut

Wow! Amazing detail. How big is it?

My little brother did the Appalachian Trail a few years back. He started in Georgia on his 40th birthday. He's an experienced hiker, took him about 6 months. He looked really whooped when he got back home.

Wow those are some mad skills you have! All the boys here at work loved this one. 1/2 of them ride Hogs and us other 1/2 ride crotch rockets. But still like looking at them.

Well done~!!!!!

ROFL - Yep Grizz, you'd think a guy that takes pictures for a living would understand the concept of perspective. Sorry. It is 11 inches long and 7" to the top of the mirrors.

Had to laugh at hairy's comment! This is an awesomely detailed project. The belt detail isn't even necessary but since it is there, does the motor rumble? Where's the picture of the eye patch? Oh, you are waiting for another piece of Ebony?

I wanna know how many hours you have in it too.
That looks awesome. I have built some large motorcycles. I have thought about doing the miniature thing. Then I look at my fat fingers and decide, nah!

Thanks for all the compliments Jockers!

Couldn't say exactly how long it took me as I would pop in and out of the shop on my spare time and cut a part or two. If I had to guess I'd say 100 hrs? Like I said though that's a real rough guess.

Hairy - your killin me - rofl

Very nice job on this bike. If I am not mistaken, it has been built from the cherry tree plan ?
I gave one of these a go a while back, but never did finish it…............ just a bit beyond yours truly.

You did a great job on this…... "A tip of the Hat" to you sir.
