After Izhar Gafni, an Israeli inventor, over-heard a conversation about a man who built a canoe entirely out of cardboard, an idea took shape in his mind: Why not take his passion, biking, and become the first man to build a commercial bicycle out of cardboard.
To see if it could be done, Gafni consulted three engineers, they all returned the same verdict: impossible. However, this did not deter him, and after three years of careful study and prototyping with corrugated board, he finally accomplished his dream.
The bicycle only costs between $9 and $12 to produce, it is weather proof, strong, durable and looks great. Have a look at Gafni’s incredible story and beautifully sustainable design.
