Cool Handmade Trike

Cool Handmade Trike

Average speed of this motorcycle is only 20km/h. But it’s cool not because of the engine power, but due to its uniqueness. The creator and owner of the bike calls it “the steampunk trike”. It may seem that the bike was made from random stuff but in fact each detail was thoroughly selected to match the general style of the model. An oak barrel serves as a hood and the electric engine is covered by a champagne bucket. Drinking bowl replaced the glass of the light. The hand brake is a metal hand with creepy manicure. Even a musical box is mounted! The back of the seat is covered with an anaconda leather case.

It took Igor from Bishkek two years to complete the bike. The most complicated work was connected with electronics.  Now, when it’s done, Igor rides the bike every morning.
