28 years ago, I married my longtime girlfriend, Irit.
She knew and I knew that motorcycles are my great love.
After the wedding I was looking to renovate an old motorcycle, and put it in the living room.
I encountered determined opposition and the plan was shelved, but the dream remains alive and Irit – changed her mind long ago.
So I set out (months of work) and bought some small models of motorcycles (from a toy store).
By joint resolution of family members, we selected the targeting model: YAMAHA xv 1900 raider.
While working as a driving instructor, at hours of outages, I began the work of planning, calculations, drawings, scaling, getting images and information from the internet and attention to details at the level of millimeters.
The whole bike is made of wood, except the screws. The woods are recycled wood residues.
Work of months came to an end and is dedicated to my beloved wife, Irit.
