This is my beloved Woody. By far my favourite bike to ride of all my bikes. I dont have any photos of the build so all I can do is show the finished product. The bike was constructed from a bit of 4x2 recycled hardwood and a 5 speed 20' kids bike. The vinyl I used to cover the seat cost $5 and that is the total cost of the bike.
The bike rides really well but it tought me a couple of things about frame geometry. When I ride up curbes slowly my bike tips over backwards. The center of gravity is too far back by about 100mm or so. And I would lik to be able to stretch my legs about 100mm further. I might have to invest in a CAD(https://www.instructables.com/id/Office-Chair-Bike/step1/Design-your-bike-using-a-CAD-system-Cardboard-Aid/) system.
The timber got a coat of sanding sealer and 2 coats of marine varnish.
I also added custom lightning bolts and a scull.
