This is the third in a series and has been made for my first Great-Grandson who just turned three. Body is poplar, rocker is oak and other parts are made from pine, oak, walnut and 1/4” ply.. Harley is bolted thru the rocker slats to both wheels and thru the two supports under the bike. Everything has been made Heavy-Duty because two little boys will be “ridin” it…

The best rocker I’ve seen. This has got to be a big hit with great grandkids. Beautiful work!

Ok, you win the award for Coolest Great Granddad Ever. You might be surprised, since you weren’t aware you were even in the contest. But here you go, there’s the award anyway.

Now that is totally awesome! Just curious, how much rocking-horse power does it have? :))

I hope the kids with pedal cars have been taught to watch out for motorcycles.
