PF Season - The New

Penny Farthing - $1200 (Advance)








"Today lots of things are not black & white, but these Excelsior rideable show ready Penny Farthings are! These are Excelsior class bikes in like new condition. They are a remake of the old Boneshaker and are in show condition and ready for riding. These bikes are hand crafted using the finest quality materials. They come with discrete petite stands.

The black one has a 52-inch front wheel, 16-inch rear wheel, moustache style handlebars, Torpedo grips, bell, hammock style leather saddle and three-hole adjustable crankset. I can ride it and I have a 32-inch inseam, but the recommended minimum inseam is 35-inch for this bike.

The white one has a 48-inch front wheel, drop style handlebars, walnut pedals and grips, European custom antique white color, bell, hammock style leather saddle. Recommended inseam for this bike is 28-inch or higher.
These bikes are priced at $1200 each with stands. This is 40% less than the price of new Excelsior bikes.

Ya think? With 2 sets of wheels? Thatís a no brainer even if you throw the frame away - which I am not suggesting.

A good price ($200) on what appears to be a 1982 Trek 613. The only model I could find with Suntour Blue Line S RD and Reynolds 531 frame. I may go get this myself if I can make it happen. And it's my size.

Shift cabling, and double chainring means it's an '82 613. Funny, I don't remember mine having adjustment screws on the dropouts. But that was 30 years ago.... Hmm, serial number suggests it was born as a 614, so double chainring may be a swap. Still a sweet midrange from their golden era, only caveat would be the possible "death fork".

Could you elaborate on "death fork". I am not familiar.

It's just a tad large for me... I'm more of a 54cm. Would be a great bike.

Still mostly on the hunt for a steel touring frame.... 😅 N+1 though..

^^^^^ I'm the last guy to advocate globalism, but there really needs to be an international law requiring anyone who geezer-mods a road bike to place the original bar, stem and brake levers (ESP. the brake levers) in escrow until such time as the bike is put up for sale.

Just sayin'.....

The original Ishiwata fork had a rather cheap crown, and there are reported cases of the blades separating from the crown. Forks on higher (and later) models had a better investment cast crown. AFAIK it was rare, but something to know about; just do your own searching on something like "trek death fork" or the like. My only personal experience is with the '82 613 I bought new, rode for several thousand miles, including 500 miles loaded for touring on some of Ireland's steeper mountain roads, without incident.

Ha! I liberated this one in May, haven't begun to restore it yet, but Superbe levers are lying in wait, and Nitto bar and stem on the way!
