A penny-farthing for your thoughts?


We are all kids at heart and kids love big tires.  If you have a giant tire in your back yard you are pretty much required by law to use it for something cool.  What could be cooler than a monster penny-farthing?

While a basic understanding of physics will tell you that this penny-farthing won’t be winning any land speed awards, and attempting to ride it on even the slightest of inclines will probably result in a a visit to your hernia specialist, it’s still damn cool!

Now if you will excuse me, I’m going to go grow a handlebar mustache.

  1. I want to see him ride that around a corner without dismounting. Let's see how strong he is.
    But pennyfarthings are cool looking bicycles. Dangerous as hell, but cool.

      1. You're right, I missed that the first time thru. The second time I wore my glasses.
        Thanks for the correction, but now I must declare "Where's the sport in that?".

  2. I love the people riding by on bikes who do not take a second look. They must see some bizarre stuff in their lives not to take a double take at this.
    Also, needs more motor.

  3. This is absolutely among the more appealing blogs I’ve seen. It’s so easy to get jaded, but there is honestly some great material online, and I think your website is one of the few!
