I am making toys to donate at Christmas. I came across this pattern for a motorcycle and since I ride a Harley this toy drew my attention. I made my prototype from oak, then altered the pattern to make the struts thiner than called out on the print. Alternating woods makes for interesting variations. Great use of scrap pieces.
My Grandson is going to love his!

Credit to the website where I found the pattern:

If anyone else has any motorcycle plans please let me know.

I bought a book with a cool motorcycle pattern in it. I found it on amazon here . I haven’t found any free motorcycle patterns. Thanks for the link to this one. You did an amazing job. I’m sure the kids are gonna love it.
