This is one of my favorite projects I’ve ever done. Simply because it brings a big smile to my little boys face every time he hops on and goes for a ride.
It’s the only thing I’ve made from template plans (although I did modify them a bit anyways :) )
I put Honda decals on it so it looks like daddy’s bike.

I absolutely loved the rocking horse my dad built for me, but man…this is something else. You’ve got one lucky son. Awesome job – that’s just fantastic.

the look on the little face is saying a thousand words. He’s saying he’s a happy camper right now. Good job.

Hi all, thanks for the kind comments. Yes the little guy already loves daddy’s motobike too.

Ken, the plans are available here.
Make sure you get some large transfer paper with the plans in case you weant to use them more than once.

Good luck.

Pretty cool! This is good inspiration for my next rocker project since I now have a fourth kid to make a rocker for!

Have your say...
