Man makes a ‘Cowasaki’ motorcycle out of bones


FOR over 10 years, a man has been building motorcycles made out of bones.

Reese Moore, Florida, started making the creations after building an eight-foot model T-rex dinosaur for his kids in 1995. After selling it to a bar in the Daytona area, he joked with the owner that he would make a motorcycle out of bones for Bike Week.

Moore took it as a challenge when the bar owner said it couldn’t be done and began building the motorcycle soon after.

I just love working with bones,” he told the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

The 65-year-old’s latest creation is the ‘Cowasaki’ chopper and is now on display, and for sale, at Dunn’s Attic & Auction House in Ormond Beach for $55,000 (£33,108).

Asked how many bones were used to build the motorcycle, Moore said: “Well, it usually takes about three to four cow skulls, two to three alligator skulls, goat, wolf, raccoon, turtle, and pig bones.”

“Also it takes one cow’s back for each of the wheels.”

Moore is continuing to make his creations and is currently building a flying dinosaur for Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum.
