Beautifully designed bikes that look like motocycles are made from old wood from building sites.

Fixed-gear bikes made from lightweight aluminum might be a hit with hip urban dwellers, but Bill Holloway and Mauro Hernandez prefer something a bit more traditional. The duo from San Jose, California, have been building wooden bicycles by hand; swapping metal parts for recycled wood. The materials are sourced from dismantled homes and buildings, and lumber from tree removals.

Holloway and Hernandez use their skills in traditional wood working to create “art that you can ride.” Each of the wooden bikes is unique and resembles a high-performance motorbike with a sleek and cool edge. These upcycled bikes remind us of the electric bike inspired by the motorcycle.
