A not for kids kid’s bike on eBay (AKA Penny Farthing)

There is a reason that the penny farthing bike was replaced with what was called the safety bicycle. So if you have a child that you’re not too fond of this might be the bike for you.

Potential head injury aside, this is a cool bike. It’s closer in design to a two-wheel tricycle than an actual penny farthing, which would assist in rideability. The brake caliper on the rear wheel is a nice touch.

The best part is that the opening bid and the shipping cost are totally reasonable. Though I expect that when it sells six days from now it will be well beyond my budget.
