Bikes Made of Trees

Seniors Tap Into Pedal Power

This bike “wood” certainly get you attention.

It's a work-of-art you can ride.  A US bike maker has hand-sculpted bicycles made out of trees, and these bikes will never rust.

This bike is called the 'Woody Scorcher,' by Denver-based Connor Wood Cycles.  They describe it as a wooden bike that combines form and function.

Owner Chris Conner says Scorcher bikes derive from a title given to groups of bicycle-bound hooligans from the late 19th century.

There are two models… the Woody Cruiser and Woody Scorcher.

They are varnished with marine spar and are made from ash and walnut woods, which are sustainable American hardwoods. 

These bikes are tough enough for every day use.  The bikes cost between $3,500 and $4,000.

It takes its creators between three and four months to build one.
