    There are still some penny farthing enthusiasts out there and I came across this new take on a old concept.

    I don't know if it's high voltage or not but it certainly cool. I have no idea how it brakes.

    Penny farthing replicas are quite rare but quite a interesting thing to behold in action. This one is quite a looker, I guess you need to have good skills in keeping balance while riding this thing but amusing enough to look absolutely histrionic.

    This one doesn't seem to have brakes, but then again that's the last thing you will be thinking of when you are rolling down a hill and you have those pedals hitting you on the shins.
