Iran Mestas knows wood — he makes his living as a custom furniture maker. He turned that knowledge to practical use when he built "Woody," a wooden bike that's as much a work of art as it is a fully functional bike. It's gorgeous, with dark wooden circlets holding up the mirrors, warm amber-orange wooden grips, a huge wooden banana seat covered by a smart-looking matching cloth, all sitting on top of two striking hubs popping out with alternating dark and light wood.
