1980 OLD ENGLAND Penny Farthing 1880
Made by Monaco Ltd, London
Juvenile machine to introduce children to riding a penny farthing
26″ Front wheel
8″ Rear Wheel
The build quality on these miniature penny farthings was excellent, and many children in the 1980s were introduced to the joys of riding a penny farthing at a much safer distance from the ground than on a full size adult machine.
The front wheel is a similar size to normal road bikes, and it’s fitted with a brake on the rear wheel. It’s in first class original cosmetic condition and is fully functional.
