Random: Mahogany bicycles - now I've seen it all

| | Comments (1)

Just when I thought I had seen it all (aka bamboo bikes), Nate sends me a link to a craftsman in Japan who makes wooden bicycles out of mahogany. Cute, you think. Toy wood bikes..... only these are high-end, custom racing bikes. Real bikes.

The maker, Suehiro Sano, is a 9th generation craftsman. Apparently he made high end wooden boats before going into bicycles.

Sano's website is here: http://sanomagic.world.coocan.jp/englishindex.html

Wow, that's amazing. It's enough to make the Amish jealous.
