Fig 1. Motorcycle Rocker

A couple weeks we started working on building a design we had commissioned for this motorcycle rocker. One important aspect of the design was that it had to be made from one sheet of plywood.

The full size drawings to complete this project are now available for sale here in our online store.

Test building our #Motorcycle #Rocker, the newest #woodworking project on the #workbench.

Its taken about 20 hours to complete to the stage shown at the end of this project. Still some sanding to do and to install the foot peg (need to make a couple short lengths of 3/4 inch dowel). The only extra materials besides the plywood was a length of 3/8 inch dowel for the axles.

The rocker assembly could be secured with split tenon or screws (inserted from in behind). I left this not glued because I intend to dismantle after its completed. I have no place to store it.

The seat height off the floor is 20 inches. IT is 17-5/8 inches wide, 42 inches long and 29-1/2 inches tall. I’m guessing it weighs about 20 lbs
