Hi,I’m a teacher in Belgium. In woodworking school BUSO Spectrum Buggenhout we made this year a bicycle with just only 125 wooden pieces … designed by Leonardo Da Vinci.

This program looks like a very good one for the teenagers and this looks like a very cool project.
Interesting that Leonardo put the drivetrain on the left side and all bikes today have it on the right side. Not sure I could handle the Ardennes or the cobbles at Flanders on this saddle though…:-)

I really like it. The design looks a little weak on the horizontal piece between the tires, but I guess all the weight is on the back wheel so it may not matter.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. Looks like a nice group of young men with a talent for woodworking. Those metal rims might get a little noisy on cobblestones, and that leather drive belt with the dowel type cogs is quite good. It may not ride as smooth as an Achielle, but it is definitely in a class of its own. Thank you forsharing.

This project not only teaches the students woodworking, but also wood science. What they learn from this bicycle is what they can apply to other projects. This is cool!

Nice bike. Maybe you can Tom Boonen to give it a ride or maybe Sven Nys or the Cannibal? ;)
