This classy wooden bike design break the cliché that green designs have no style. The classic defender bike is a super stylish bike made from black walnut and maple multi plywood. The entire framework, handle & seat is made from wood. And that’s not it! Even the bike stand is made from wood. Most often the wood used for the bikes is picked up from the inventory at the Green Sawmill in San Mateo, California and hand crafted carefully to create the ultimate “Art in Motion” experience.
“The attention to detail and craftsmanship make each one truly “Art in Motion” as they cruise down city streets turning heads where ever they are. These bikes are truly a sign that craftsmanship is still a live and well in these time of mass produced two wheeled machines. The finish/sealer/stain we recommend is low VOC and friendly to animals, humans and the environment: safe-to-use Penofin® Verde rosewood oil. This finish is easily maintained and leaves the “wood feel” as it protects.” – says Owner & Master Woodworker William (Bill) H. Holloway
