Izhar Gafni’s Cardboard Bicycle Will Change The World

A bicycle made almost entirely of cardboard has the potential to change transportation habits from the world’s most congested cities to the poorest reaches of Africa, its Israeli inventor says.

Izhar Gafni, 50, is an expert in designing automated mass-production lines. He is an amateur cycling enthusiast who for years toyed with an idea of making a bicycle from cardboard.

It took a year and a half, with lots of testing and failure until I got it right,” he said.
