In many parts of Russia during the winter there is not much to do. It's dark almost all day long, it's cold, and apart from drinking and some other more intimate form of physical exercise, there is not much to do. But Russian carpenter Yuri Hvtisishvili, came up with something to keep himself occupied in those long winter evenings .... he made a motorcycle.

He used a motorcycle he loved as model, the IZH-49 (a 1951 to 1958 bike which manufacturer is now part of the famous gun manufacturer concern, Kalashnikov Click here to read more about it Open Click here to read more about it link in a new window). This is what the original looks like:

And based on that, he made a true 1:1 replica, made totally out of wood:

Wooden IZH 49

Everything is made out of wood, including the engine and even the spokes. The detail is amazing.

So after the winter, he ended up with this incredibly detailed and amazingly build replica of the IZH-49 motorcycle. Too bad it can't ride for real, but for sure it will look great in his living room.

Bravo Yuri, great job, that is some serious talent you have got.

Sometimes people can make really beautiful things, and sometimes they can do that little bit more making an already beautiful object into a form of art. Russian Dmitri Goubenko is one of those people. Look at what he made:

This is a motorcycle made out of mostly wood. It is a real motorcycle, so it works. The frame and engine are obviously not made out of wood, but the rest is, and it is hand carved.

But what makes this motorcycle special, is that it is made out of wood. Totally from wood, apart from the engine and some other important parts. Even the wheel is made out of wood, apart from the tire
