The Hungarian wooden vehicle masterpieces

Amazing. Istvan Puskas, a 52 year old tractor driver who lived in Tiszaors, a small town 161 km (100 miles) east of Budapest, Hungary, He  made his own motorcycle from scratch. So far nothing special, many people have done it before him.

But what makes his motorcycle so special, because it is made out of wood. Totally from wood, apart from the engine and some other important parts. Even the wheels are made out of wood, apart from the tires.
In 2012 after he spent two years making this wooden motorcycle and the result looks amazing. There's no data on the weight aside from a small 50 cc motor, virtually everything on this wooden chopper is fashioned from black locust wood.

As reported of Dailymail on May 31, 2013, another Istvan masterpiece was a fully-functioning wooden car.
As his other works, the rest of the car, including the frame, gears and axles, are made entirely of wood except the car's engine taken from a Fiat 126 and steering wheel taken of an old Mercedes-Benz. While the petrol tank was made out of a beer barrel.

After his wooden car finished, he continued to create a wooden motorcycle with a 200 cc engine. His three-wheeled masterpiece took six months to build, with many of Istvan's friends donating spare parts. Uniquely motorcycle handlebars are made of the horns of Hungarian Grey Cattle.
He began working on the bike's wooden wheels, which consist of 36 individual pieces screwed and glued together, in November 2013 and finished on May 1, 2014. And despite the incredible level of craftsmanship, the bike was designed with reliability rather than speed in mind, meaning it has a top speed of only 19.31 kph (12 mph).
