Rare Childs 1880's Cross Frame Solid Tyre Safety Bicycle. POA

1880's Childs Solid Tyre Cross Frame Safety Bicycle
A rare solid tyre safety bicycle for a child dating from the 1880's. Quite a few adult machines have survived, but children's machines are very rare to come across. Partly because, a bicycle in the 1880's was a luxury purchase for the wealthy and a child would have been very fortunate to have had a bicycle bought of their own. The bike has been sympathetically overhauled in our workshop. A new bottom bracket had to be made along with several other repairs to the frame and front forks. The wheels are 3/4 inch x 25 inch solid tyre with period hubs and built in the radial style. Period child's leather saddle, new wooden grips and original period 1 inch pitch chain. Original pedals. It has been suggested the maker is possibly 'Singer'? - Price: POA - Get in touch
