    Thats one of the coolest things Ive seen on the net lately.


    Unfortunately, after some quick Google-fu, pricing is definitely not cool. $4500-$8500 per bike. Ouch..

    Definitely pricey, but you gotta know there's some serious hours in one of those frames

    Nope. And while the varnish may indeed be flammable, the finished product would be combustible..not flammable.

    Haha, no doubts there. Even with a CNC machine, those frames would still take a while. Hand made, I dont even want to think about.

    Last year, a guy on a local forum built a wooden chopper frame out of laminated wood. He has not yet got around to making wooden fork and seat:

    He didn't say. I cannot tell from the pictures if there's a coaster brake there.

    It looks like it might feel a bit wooden in its handling characteristics.
