From the Series
The Penny Farthing looks like a lovely excuse to don an oversized hat and get yourself around in the style of yesteryear. This updated version of the old classic comes with improved safety standards, a durable steel frame, anti-slip pedals, a brake on the rear wheel and a spring suspension in the seat for a smoother ride. The front wheel is about 91cm while the back wheel is a more conservative 30cm, giving the rider a classically elevated position.
These old guys are available from www.iwantoneofthose.com and retail for around R5500.
