High Wheel Bicycle OSPREY – F.W. Bagshaw, 1878

This high wheel was made in Sheffielf – England for the Paris Wold´s Fair, 1878. It has silver plated fittings and it is rumoured that it was made for the Tsar of Russia.

In the photograph, Frank Roper is shown holding the bicycle in 1935. Mr. Roper had a blok of eight shops all selling cycles and later motorcycle parts on London Road, Sheffield.

The bicycle was later acquired by Mr. Barrett in the 1960s, by then it was in a very poor condition and required the restoration of missing and corroded parts.

Victoria model 36 - 1898

Really very difficult to find an original bicycle in original condition after 120 years, like in this case. It was never been used, cleaning, repaired, restored.... This "sleeping beauty" waited for many years to be showed again with all original parts, without demage, with original paint, strips, wooden parts, original tires....
