Wood Motorcycle – Hand Carved Art on Wheels

Every now and then you come up on something amazing in the online classifieds. Generally I don’t look twice at a $30,000 item as I’m scrolling through the motorcycle pages, but in this case I stopped and feasted my eyes on a beautiful and one of a kind piece of artwork.

Not only a motorcycle made of wood, but an absolutely exquisite piece of artwork.

Wooden Motorcycle

A motorcycle made of wood.

What happened next was over 800 hours of labor. Even more impressive, the motorcycle was made without a single sketch. This shows not only the dedication of the craftsman but his vision and talent as well.

The motorcycle was crafted from Siberian birch and oak. Most of the parts, such as the gas tank and the rims were replaced with wood. The wood carver named the motorcycle sculpture “My Lady” as a tribute to his wife for motivating him to finally complete his dream.

What do you think?

Is the hand-carved wood motorcycle sculpture worth $30,000? How much would you pay to have this in your entrance, living room, or garage?

  2. RT @RidersDiscount: So. Cool.
