Cardboard Bike. Really.

How impressive is the idea to even want to create a cardboard bicycle? Congratulations to Mr. Izhar for proving us all that it can be done!

The Cardboard Bicycle can withstand water and humidity, coated with a strong layer of brown and white material, making the finished product look like it is made of hard lightweight plastic and can carry riders weighing up to 220 kilograms. The cost to make the bicycle is around $9-$12 and the manufacturer expects that the cost to the consumer would be around $60-$90 depending on what parts they choose to add on.

  1. Hurrah! Very inspiring man. And you know it’s a true saying that behind every great man there is a great woman saying,” If you don’t do it you’ll drive yourself crazy and you’ll drive me and the family do it.”

  2. He is a true imagineer! This is so inspiring. I love watching how he did what everyone else said was impossible. The reality is, if you can imagine it, it can be done.

    Thanks for sharing this.
