Wood Bikes You Can Make

Wooden Bikes
Fun Bikes that you can make yourself, from wood and metal

So you want to build a bike in the worst possible way... 
My epiphany came when was trying to make a large castor wheel for a parade float.  I drilled a hole in a scrap of redwood 4x6 lumber and mounted an old Campagnolo bike headset in it.  I installed an old bike fork through it and attaching a wheel to make a BIG castor wheel.  But many other possibilities emerged.  I was also immediately captivated by the incongruous look of an old piece of lumber sporting a fine headset and supporting a fork and wheel.
