Tree Branch Bike.

Thanks blurb!


Its sculpture. Not a bicycle, not really even a swiftwalker which predates the bike. Notice the wheels are not in the same plane, in a way that is unlike any steering method I am familiar with.

Anyway, there is nothing to get. Somebody made it, threw it together its certain, because driftwood forks are not really going to last very long, and failed forks = ouch.

Sculpture. I would point out the wiring behind it, seems to be of about the same quality and workmanship. Run it through the door and if needed, let one cable just trail off into the paved patio, what could go wrong?

Ken, you shared a hi res of it under creative commons. I only wish you knew the original artist! Great job, wooden bikes are something special.

That is more rustic than most of mine.
But ridable wooden bikes are easy to make and a fun way to prototype and explore ideas.
