    Bicycle created out of recycled cardboard

    Bicycle created out of recycled cardboard
    Gear  /  Bike


    Bike enthusiast and designer Izhar Gafni built a functioning bicycle made for $9 out of recycled cardboard. Idea of another inventor's cardboard canoe project.
    "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."
