The Penny-Farthing is the iconic bicycle of the 1800s and by extension, the steampunk genre. With it’s large front “penny” wheel and significantly smaller “farthing” back wheel. This bicycle generally elicits images of a man in a striped suit going for a ride on the strand to air out his mustache. Or something like that.
But not this version, this one is steam powered. The power that fuels the steam engine and by extension, the economy.
