c.1884 54" inch Penny Farthing Bicycle for sale
« on: November 25, 2019, 03:39:24 AM »
A 54'' penny farthing bicycle dating from c.1884. Over-painted black and with minor work would appear to make a good riding bicycle. Both wheels run well and front hub bares the bicycle number and wheel size. Semi- moustache handlebars with original brake lever and spoon brake. Brooks type long distance saddle with a later 'Lycett' leather top fitted. Rat trap pedals and roller bearings to both wheels. Currently an unknown maker, but further investigation may reveal some markings to the frame. Fitted to the spine of the bicycle is a rare 'Lamplugh's Patent luggage carrier'. A rare accessory.
