Welcome! I'm getting around to making a wooden bike/trike sort of thing. . .
The 1st prototype, The Car Cycle used fiberglass for an integrated frame and suspension, but I think it can be re-done mostly in wood/epoxy. The next one is likely to have a Honda Cub heart instead of pedals, but a pedelec version is interesting too.

Trikes

Strange, I'm working on a wooden trike also - laminated baltic birch plywood
frame with 22mm front axles and mechanical disc brakes. When I figure out how to post a pic I'll send you one of my first trike.( 1500 miles - no fossil fuel!)

I think you can't attach pics until your 6th posting. It discourages spam. I'll be waiting, and hoping you're a tadpole type.
