DIY Wooden Bicycle

Swedish industrial designer Erik Björk built this fantastic Do It Yourself Wooden Bicycle. [via BikeHacks]

The Do It Yourself Wooden Bicycle is just about everything industrial design don´t is. It is very easy to copy an reproduce. With a trashed bike to get components from and a nearby hardware store anyone can build it with normal hand tools. The look is quit rough and unconventional making it safe from thieves and if you miss something on the bike like a parcel carrier just build it the way you want it. The Do It Yourself Wooden Bicycle even got a name that is to long to be commercial.

The bike is to be seen as a first test version of a open source project. Please build your own, if you want drawings of the bike for an initial help just mail me at
