Weird Bike Wednesday - Wooden Tandem

Out for a ride on a wooden tandem
I have seen wooden bicycles before, but this is the first time I have seen a wooden tandem. Jens Eichler of Germany created this bike from 83 pounds of plywood. After carving away 22 pounds, he was left with a 61 pound frame. After adding in all the other parts, total weight was 114 pounds. Since it is rather heavy and took 400 hours to construct, it's not a very practical design. Still, you have to admire the beauty of the finished product.
