Off Topic - Wanted - Penny Farthing

Post by dgear1984 »

Hope this is ok and the right place to post being off topic.

I had success on this page last time I was searching off topic to buy a vintage k9 phone box. Mum loves her phone box and it’s now used as a greenhouse.

I’m now looking for a vintage penny farthing. Anything considered, dirty, rusty, restored, etc

Looking for a vintage one not a modern reproduction.

Thanks Dave

Young Master Forster will know someone with an 'Ordinary', I'm sure. (I was told by Peter Card, something of THE specialist in these things, NEVER to call them Penny Farthings, for reasons I can't even remember!)

As Al has suggested, Adam moves in those particularly wobbly circles. He may know someone with one for sale.

I'll ask him.
