A high specification racing Penny Farthing that is designed and produced by Unicycle.com. While this machine harks back to the days of the 1880s, when these were popular, it is brought right up to date with the use of modern materials and manufacturing techniques. This produces a durable rideable Penny Farthing (Ordinary Cycle).
The frame is made from CrMo and has a moveable rear fork to allow you to change the front fork rake for different riding preferences. As well as the standard double step which is ideal for coasting there is an additional lower step that can be set to the left or right to help mounting. There is even a hole on the front fork to house spare spokes.
This Penny Farthing comes with black tires and a brake as standard.
