Popsicle stick bicycle

Sun Chao in Kaiyuan, northeast China spent four months building a ridable bicycle out of 10,000 popsicle sticks.



The only metal parts are the chain and bearings, according to this story at Oddity Central.

Original news (in Chinese) at CSYTV. Google Translate variously says 10,000 and 1 million popsicle sticks were needed to build this bike. He’d like to apply to the Guiness Book of World Records for some kind of recognition, but doesn’t know enough English to fill out the required forms.
