i built a couple of Sherwood rocking motorcycles for Christmas presents for nieces and nephews. I saw several of these on the site. I really liked building them, but felt they took too long. I learned a lot building these, they are not perfect by any means. I hope that they get as much enjoyment from riding them as I did building them. William D sure makes them look easy. I did not glue and nail them as the plan said, I chose to screw them and plug screw holes. Not sure I would do that again.

Very nice! Keep it up. I need to build a couple of those. I like the mags.

Those look great.
I wish I had the nerve to try and make those.
Thanks for sharing.

They look cool to me, well done. Looks like a complex project that would take a lot of time.

Really nice job. I make these also. They are time consuming.
