Ritsert Mans' eco-friendly motorcycle is made with a wooden frame and runs on algae oil.

Inspired to create a motorcycle that would better connect the rider with nature, the maker behind this design utilized tools and materials that were primarily found in the natural world. The wooden frame was made from "team-bent birch with hemp fiber reinforced mountings for the two point headset, glued together using plain old wood glue."

Algae produces oil similarly to how olives do, and like olives, that oil can be extracted and used in a simple diesel. This combination resulted in the creation of a functioning, perfectly eco-friendly motorcycle that can be driven without fear of further environmental damage.
