Wooden motorcycle is not new, but the Russian Carpenter Yuri Hvtisishvili pushed this art to perfection. Yuri wanted to do something to occupy himself when he ran short of work during a slow period. Before the woodwork, the hardest decision for Yuri was the choice of motorcycle but, as The Soviet Union produced a high number of domestic motorcycle, Yuri caught the eye of motorcycle IZH-49 manufactured between 1951-1958.
Yuri carved every part of the motorcycle himself, including all the small bolts and other intricate details (screws, wires…). It took four months to Yuri until the work was fully completed. Yuri did his job to all the details, including the smallest structural parts, screws and wires.
Yuri’s work is truly stunning!
