VIKS WOODaLIKE is a sensational urban commuter created in collaboration with the Dutch Velowland.

In 2014, the team behind Velowland – Sjoerd Linde, Frank Everhardus and Oscar Linde got their hands on an original Lamborghini-orange VIKS and transformed it into almost unearthly city bike by applying some woodgrain magic.


The woodgrain technique is typically used in renovating monumental buildings. Velowland challenged themselves to make a monument of their own and applied the technique on frame, rims, saddle and even handlebars. The bike looks like it has been made of wood and you can only truly tell it’s all solid steel by touching it.
The combination of wood-like frame, steering and carbon belt drive makes this cafe racer a true eye catcher. The white tires, seat post design and leather racing saddle add an extra layer of tough and sportiness.

Velowland is based in an idyllic town of Meppel, Netherlands. The team creates bikes that turn heads because of their unusual look and finish – woodgrain technique being one of them.
