1880s Penny Farthing with Humber Components

52″ Front Wheel

This attractive English penny farthing is mostly in unrestored original condition, but its front wheel has been rebuilt, with new hub flanges, rim, spokes and tyre. It has Humber components, though it does not appear to be a Humber, which suggests it was assembled by one of the many local builders throughout the country to a customer’s order.
