This unusual little motorcycle is obviously made of wood, but with a real engine and running gear. A few 2x4's, 4x4's and a bit of 2"x12" make up the frame, forks and seat. Look closely the the front end! It is a working suspension mechanism composed of two coil springs, some steel rod and two 2x4's functioning as a counter-levered shock absorber! It's the first wooden springer front end I have ever seen, for sure.
The wide West Coast style handlebars were hewn of out of a small timber with just the right amount of curvature. Wood screws, lag bolts with nuts and flat washers and are the fasteners used. The galvanized brackets and steel strapping used to complete the chassis are construction items commonly found in residential and commercial building. That's an old scooter rim on the front, and the rear tire and wheel was salvaged from a small automobile. Don't know what engine was used but it looks like a small 2-stroke.
If the builder of this scooter is not a carpenter by trade, he certainly could become one. I think the guy did a heck of a job, and no doubt, on a shoe string budget! All of these items could be purchased at the local building supply and a motorcycle salvage yard.
This wooden freedom machine was photographed by the guys at Dolmette.com, the same people that built the Chain Saw Motorcycle.
