TISZAORS, HUNGARY -- Istvan is a craftsman who lives in eastern hungary, and he's has taken the art of building custom motorcycles to a new level.

Except for the engine and tires, this bike is almost all wood.

Specifically, it's made from acacia wood.

In place of handlebars, there are cattle horns. It's pwoered by a polski fiat 126 engine. Even the gas tank's made from a small wine barrel.

Puskas started by building wooden bicycles, and after the fourth one he decided to try making a motorcycle.

The bike took him two years and around $200 to build, and it can cruise at around 20-Mph.

Motorcyclists have been complaining about 'wooden brakes" for years.
