Bamboo Motorcycle Seat

I've built a couple of things out of Bamboo such as a blow dart, and a spear to hunt Cane Toads, but never a tail section for a Custom. This guy built one one strand of bamboo at a time, laminating, fibreglassing and finally buffing it to the fine masterpiece you see below.

I've no doubt that he won't have a problem with strength as bamboo is the equivalent of natures carbon fibre.

It took a total fo 200 hours which equates to about 10 weeks of work if you remove morning teas / lunch / afternoon tea and water cooler chat.

Scrounging around on the weekend and managed to pickup a straight RX125 tank. Doesn't have the key though so will have to see if I can pop it with a screwdriver.
