Antique Pope-columbia High Wheeler Bicycle - Rideable - 1800s For Sale

Antique Pope-columbia  High Wheeler Bicycle - Rideable - 1800s

Wonderful antique POPE-COLUMBIA HIGH WHEELER BICYCLE for sale! It was also known as a "PENNY-FARTHING" or "BONESHAKER" BICYCLE. I believe this may be a POPE-COLUMBIA "EXPERT" model - it has a 50 inch diameter front wheel and 18 inch diameter rear wheel. It dates from the late 1800s - the last readable date on the steel faceplate is July 7, 1885. The frame is in excellent condition - no damage from rust or metal fatigue. The rubber has been replaced with custom solid rubber replicating the antique rubber- the old rubber tires had disintegrated. The new leather seat is an exact custom one-of-a-kind replica of the old seat, just in new leather and commercial quality gusset material. All spokes on both wheels are all original and taut. The gearing is original and tight. The rubber pedals may have been replaced in the 1950s - they do not look original to me, though I am not certain. The handlebars are tight. The scrolled wooden handlebar grips are original. The Pope-Columbia emblem plate has several patent dates inscribed, but only the "July 7, 1885" date is fully readable. The bicycle has been repainted and in need of touch up. If cycling turns you on, turn back to the 1880s! If you are looking for an ORIGINAL POPE-COLUMBIA HIGH WHEELER, CHECK THIS ONE OUT! This antique bicycle is waiting for you and your porkpie cap! As you can see in the photos - EXCELLENT CONDITION! I can send additional photos on request.
Located in Schertz, Texas, north of San Antonio at exit 178. Local pick up available. Shipping arrangements can be made at additional cost plus handling. Prefer bank check, bicycle will be crated and shipped after check clears. This POPE-COLUMBIA HIGH WHEELER is subject to prior sale, so place your offer soon!
