Wooden Bikes from Urban Trees


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.
