This is a very rare survivor as it is a JUNIOR Penny Farthing Type HIGH WHEELER. It’s not a little bike – just not the huge size generally thought of in this style. The front wheel is 36 inches tall so it’s about 3/5ths size. Seat has been recovered with black leather. The bike was repainted long ago with Black Lacquer. Not sure of date of manufacture but castings and parts look to be late 19th century. Cab Rubber Tires and Cone’s instead of bearings indicate the age. This bike takes some skill at first to get up and going but the bike works fine. It’s up to you. Use it in your act or decorate your loft or business space. It’s Cool and priced for you. Not sure of the brand as the badge was removed for painting over 30 years ago, then misplaced. This bike hung on the wall of a bicycle shop for over 45 years. Now it’s time to have a new owner. I have many more photos but can’t seem to add more. Message me and I’ll send more.
