    Own a boneshaker?

    I've had this itch for a couple of years of wanting a penny farthing. I've never even ridden one, but they look terribly interesting and somewhat difficult to mount (and dismount). I am intrigued by this.

    So...anyone have one of these and am I crazy?

    For those of you in the dark, a penny farthing is one of those old "high wheeler" bikes

    Here's the Boneshaker

    Looks like fun.

    If you ever get up to BTV, you should stop by The Old Spokes Home. Don't know if Glenn would let you throw a leg over any of the collection, but no replicas here - those are all the real deal.

    I have always wanted to play with one too. I am sure it would be a novelty bike for me though, so I would never pay as much as a boneshaker costs. Love seeing them out and about though.

    Thanks for the link, lots of interesting stuff.

    I wonder if these things come with a top-hat...
