... that you see one of these:

Penny Farthing

we were fortunate to catch a customer passing by the shop with this lovely piece of heritage earlier on today.

bulit in 1875, this Penny Farthing was already 55 years old when green-caste denim production last came to an end.

it is still running on solid rubber tyres, and also has a hollow-iron frame and crank bearings that are the forerunner of the modern bike's.

if anyone else has a bike with a fantastic history, then we'd love to hear about it. there's always a cup of tea on offer in exchange for your stories.
