Marco Facciola's bike

High school student Marco Facciola's grandfather built his own bicycle wheels made of wood during World War II. Decades later, this inspired 16-year-old Marco to build an amazing bicycle made of 100 percent wood for a school project. Everything from the chain and pegs that hold it together to the wheels, spokes, sprockets and pedals. All wood — with a touch of glue.
