    Bike made out of Bamboo, Rattan and Wicker. IMG_5925.JPG The bike has pedals, headlight, brakes, rack, kickstand, front basket and bell. Hand woven basket. Woven Seat and Bamboo Fenders on Front and Back.

    Never ridden. Was used as a store display, then in storage. Tire pump with wooden handle included.

    Tires will not hold air. Needs new tubes. Not sure what it is worth. I have it listed for $700.

    Welcome. Better read through the Cabe For Sale section rules. Gotta post a price, no "Best Offer" allowed. Not sure it's quite "vintage" either. Definitely interesting tho...

    "2)Prices required. The majority has spoken. We want to see prices of items. You know what you want for a given item. Tell us, we want to know as well.

    I've seen a few of these on Crag's list and have been curious as to how they're engineered to, not fall apart. Now I can see in your photos, not sure if you've realized, It's not made out of Bamboo, It's a steel frame, fork and handlebar that's decorated with bamboo and rattan. [wink]
