Creative and unique (approximately 2/3 scale) interpretation of vintage motorcycle completely constructed out of the local woods from Maine. A highly detailed version of a period bike complete with headlight, mirrors, indicators, speedometer, kickstand, gas cap and other elements. Untouched, original surface. The bike was crafted by Ellsworth Maine resident Jan Wllem Van DeWetering, who was born in the Netherlands.
One cable, clutch and brake handle tips, one foot rest and turn indicators are cherry replacements.
