Ugears 3D Wooden Mechanical Model Bike
Feeling like you’ve been quite a couch-potato lately? Has life been a bit too comfortable and twice as boring? Drop it now – because the spirit of the road is calling upon you. Get your leather jacket on and absorb the exhilaration of total velocity with the bold and beautiful Bike from Ugears.
The Bike VM-02 is driven by a powerful rubber band motor that makes the motorcycle ride for as much as 3 meters in one winding. The energy produced by the motor is transmitted by a belt drive to the mechanism. The design of the Bike allows you to observe the work of the mechanism, including the moving pistons that look absolutely fascinating.
The wide back wheel ensures that the model is steady and won’t tip over and turning handlebars send your bike in whatever direction you choose making your ride even more exciting.
When you reached your final destination and it is time to park your motorcycle, use a center stand to set the model on the shelf.
Graceful and bold, your new model carries the true spirit of the road. The combination of a high-tech exterior and natural materials make the model a welcome gift to a friend or a business partner. Detailed realistic design ensures that the model will become a wonderful complement to any home or office.
A motorcycle has never been merely a means of transportation; it’s always been and will forever represent a challenge, speed, and true freedom. Create the spirit of the road with your own hands. Hold on to your handlebars and breathe in the smell of highway with the new Bike Model from Ugears.
The Bike VM-02 model kit is made of high grade wood and has everything you might need for assembly. The quality of the parts is top-notch: a laser method is used for cutting items from a plywood board that provides precise hairline cuts. The details have to be pulled out of the boards and assembled to create a complete model. Like all other Ugears models, the Bike comes with step-by-step, full-color, truly easy to follow instructions in 11 languages (Ukrainian, English, German, French, Polish, Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Chinese and Korean) and requires neither glue nor special tools to be fully assembled into functional working Bike.
Fully-functional mechanical models from nothing but laser-cut plywood? It sounds sketchy, and perhaps even fragile, but there's nothing amateur about these high-quality kits. Each box contains several sturdy wooden sheets of laser-cut pieces, with each piece numbered according to its chronological use in the instruction booklet. The booklet itself is the veritable pice de resistance of the kits, utilizing full-color 3D illustrations, "magnified" steps for small pieces, a straightforward labeling system, and helpful symbols for tricky steps. Once completed, the scale model operates just like the real thing, mimicking behavior as closely as 1/8th-inch plywood (and a few extra bits) can. Safes have combination locks, engines push pistons, and vehicles feature functioning transmission and rubber-band powered motors. All components are natural and sustainably-sourced. Oh, and did we mention the holy grail of model construction? No glue required.
The kits provide a range of complexity (between 1-12 hours), with 14 being the youngest recommended age for completing all models solo. With limited adult supervision or model-making experience, most kits can be completed by those as young as 11 or 12 and are durable enough for extended use. All models are beautifully designed and just about the right size for pretend play, and they can even be painted using watercolors or other thin paints! And of course, at the forefront of each and every lovingly crafted kit is a dedication to mechanics: you're not just putting it together; you're learning how it functions.
