TOUR DE FRANCE

 In American Woodworker Blog

AS YOU KNOW HERE IN EUROPE WE HAVE THE GREATEST BIKE RACE OFF ALL TIME. BIKES OF ALL TYPES.FROM CLAUDE BUTLER  // GARY FISHER // DAWES // RALEIGH // MERCURIO // ???? BUT  WHAT  ABOUT A TIMBER BIKE?????????????????SEE THESES WHICH ARE ALL UNIQUE AND AS I HAVE A SPARE BIKE WHICH I CAN DIMANTLE I MAY JUST MAY HAVE A GO AT MAKING ONE..!!  THESE TAKE UP TO 300 HOURS TO MAKE ONE BIKE AND THESE ARE ALL UNIQUE.AS I THINK THIS WILL BE A INTERESTING PROJECT? MAYBE JUST MAYBE MR EDWARD MEYER OF RIPLEYS IN ORLANDO FLORIDA  MAY BE INTERESTED IN HAVING ONE OF THESES IN HIS MUSEUM.UNTILL I GET AROUND TO MAKING ONE I WILL SEE WHAT MY END PIECE LOOKS LIKE 300 HOURS LATER. BUT SEE THESE IN THE MEAN TIME.THESE ARE ALL BAMBOO AS ITS A STRONGER MATERIAL,AND WILL LAST A LIFETIME.PLUS THESE BIKES WEIGH 2.3 KG.JUST NEED TO FIND A SUPPLIER FOR BAMBOO CANE. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW IF YOU DONT TRY.SO I WILL ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE FRAME THEN ADD THE BIKE PARTS LATER. MAKES A CHANGE FROM MAKING FURNITURE AND ILLUSIONS/PUZZLE.EVEN IF YOU DONT WIN THE TOUR DE FRANCE YOU MAY WIN PRIZE FOR A UNIQUE BIKE?????????
