Thanks for the comments,I was unsure what to think when I first saw it when I pulled up the gentleman's driveway,I just saw the very front of it and I said to myself " Another girls bike " I thought I had seen it somewhere before and liked it because it was unusual ,he also had a VERY cool mens safety bike in original paint which he was very partial to,we agreed he should keep that bike and he wasnt partial to this one(neither is my wife )
WOW! Un - friggin - believable! I am always amazed at the Mechanical engineering prowess you see on bikes from the turn of the last century! It seems makers had more of an imagination then. OK, so you won the Lotto, what did you pay for it? Im dying here...
..not ignorant at all...
My guess would be that the smaller wheel took some of the "bump" out of the ride, due to the fact that the larger rear wheel took most of the brunt of the jolt, then the smaller wheel (and seat) would take a smaller "hit" as it missed part of the rise or pot hole it encountered. Roads, if you could call 'em that back then, were poor at best.
