Penny-farthing

Mike the owner of the below Penny-farthing stopped to see my Model A and was I glad. For years, I have been trying to get a picture of him as he whizzed by me in my neighborhood but never could I get my camera out and working fast enough. As expected he said the hard part was starting the ride and of course the hills because it has no gears and no coaster brake. You must pedal constantly and cannot coast.
