anybody have a pennyfarthing?

I was looking at a scalefish penny farthing bike,,,,,pretty expensive! 1800 for the base model.

Looks cool, maybe more of a work of art.

The local LBS I go to in Chelsea has several originals hanging high on their wall. Always intrigued by them.

one the local shop owners has one. I've seen it when we have the mayor's bike ride each spring and fall. I guess I have the chance to try a penny fake thing. I have the front wheel and fork off a coker monster, but it's not really something I'm interested in trying.

there is a P-f trike @ the LBS, it works well at being parked across the open door for ventilation.
