Default Motorbike Rocker

Made this a while ago from 3/4", 1/2" 3/8"and 1/4" thick MDF. because there was multiple parts which were identical I used a router with a follower to make sure they matched. It took 2 months from start to finish of which 3 weeks was just painting. The handle bars and foot rests are from pine which I turned on one of my lathes.
This was made for one of the great grandsons and has now been passed down to his younger brother, except for a little paint wear it is very much in the same condition as in the photo's.
So any concerns about using MDF has well passed

I really like it Derek! All it needs is sound effects.

Great idea for a project, but I'm pretty sure my relatives wouldn't like me passing on my motorcycle hobby to their kids.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

That is extremely cool . Can hardly imagine the time it would take me to build that

Glad you all liked the bike. I have not long just finished an article on the build of this bike and hopefully it should be in "The Woodworker" magazine here in the uk, along with another of a Mercedes truck I built which I will show soon.

In the mean time here is a slide show of the build process that I did as I tend to do a lot of photo's of many of my builds which I find great as a reference for me in the future should I need them.

A warning I will apologise for the music before you watch it so feel free to turn off the sound

Hi, Derek.
Very nice motorbike rocker. I like the way you made the wheels. Can you show more details about them? Thanks a lot in advance.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!
