Salvaged urban trees, to be specific. Masterworks Wood and Design takes on the fun, creative, and totally green work of turning salvaged urban trees into wooden bicycles — sweet-looking ones!
More via a video from Masterworks Wood and Design:
“The story of these bikes goes from the felling of a family’s guardian tree, through the woodworking process, and finally, the completion of art you can ride,” the vimeo page notes.
“They’re self-taught, and the custom bikes are an offshoot of their larger woodworking and detailing business. Bill is a native San Franciscan, and his family has deep roots here. The dynamic between him and Mauro is a compelling, friendly rivalry,” Spots Unkown writes.
