I see what you mean about the plywood. What about yellow pine plank boards?

After 42 years of marriage that is a loaded question.... But I am thinking you are talking about his bike. Yeah, we have one truck and when I was at work, he is disabled, he took the bike everywhere. We do take a lot of long rides ion weekends. 300 to 400 miles a day. It's one of the reasons why I want simplicity in the house besides loving antiques. I use my antiques every day instead of new things. That flooring looks good.

It's low end flooring, but honestly compared to plywood lumber liquidators will look like flooring from the Taj Mahal.

Pine boards would be better than plywood, but keep in mind pine is soft and will nick, scratch and gouge easily.

Pine flooring is tongue and groove to keep it aligned, while straight boards nailed down may warp and come up.

If you really want rustic cheap flooring, is there any reason you're not looking at the utility grade oak or maple?

Right now after the educated comments I am up for anything. What advantages would maple have? I have maple furniture that is over 100 years old and oak furniture over 150 years old. But we are not walking on them

Either Maple or oak flooring would hold up equally well. The difference is that oak flooring will stain to many different colors, while maple is going to be better if you want to do light natural flooring.

I'm glad you didn't take it as a loaded question.
You said he was on his second motor.
Nothing wrong with lumber liquidators. Just because something cost more doesn't mean it's better. They purchase by the truck loads......

Anything would be better than home made.
You may find used flooring at recycle shops.
