I built this rocking motorcycle for my great grandson Titus for Christmas. It’s made from plywood, red oak, hickory, and mahogany. I built this from a picture and a lot of imagination it took about 4 months to finish and I had a blast building it. I hope he will pass it on to one of his kids if it last ha! ha! Hope all my lumberjocks friends will enjoy the pictures thanks for looking.

What a great Christmas present!

You’ll have to buy him/her a little leather Harley vest too.

I can see all the work involved in making this, ..... definitely no weekend project.

A true masterpiece in wood working, it looks tough enough to last more than just one generation!

The frame and wheels look to be laminated ply wood, it would be a nice project to assist on if only for the learning experience.
