Recently a good friend (and motorcycle enthusiast) had his first child, a boy. I wanted to give a gift that was a little different from the traditional diapers and one-zies. I used an old rocker toy as a pattern for the curve, and in general for the balance point, and an old tricycle sacrificed a seat and some handlebars. A fuel gauge and ‘bullet’ light (LED) were added as well. The build was fun – because it was like nothing I had ever attempted before. I used Baltic-birch for it’s strength. My children served as the ‘official testers’ and it was a success! It was painted to match my friend’s Harley.

This is my first post here, hope this is suitable (as I know it is not all wood!)

Very nice Rob, and great, fresh new idea. I’ll bet this one will spawn an entire new spate of ‘Harley Rockers’ or similar things for Lumberjocks!

Goo project Rob. Nice job. I don’t recall seeing one designed like that. Should work very well.
