Classic Bicycles | Singer British Challenge Highwheel

Classic Bicycles

In the photo above, you have the 1885 Singer British Challenge highwheel, manufactured by the Coventry Machinists' Company in Coventry, England.

This is a great example of a highwheel from that period, as the majority of parts are orginal, giving you an almost exact look at what it looked like coming out of the factory in that day.

The height of the front wheel is 56 inches, while the back wheel is 18 inches in diameter, and weight in at close to 60 pounds.
