A big project in the finals

I found a wooden tricycle in France many years ago. It was stored in the house of a former carpenter. The tricycle allegedly built by their grandfather after 1870. The machine was 90% complete, but much damaged. It was a great challenge to renovate.

The renovation was undertaken by my friend Franco in Italy. He send me several photographs in early 2021 with the result of his work. Big congratulations and the machine traveled to his private collection.

1904 St. Louis World's Fair Wooden Bicycle

My friend - historian and collector Colin Kirsch from England (you probably know his THE ONLINE BICYCLE MUSEUM) found a link to the auction hall offering an interesting wooden bike, but with it a number of questions for cycling collectors.

He himself writes: "AUCTION WATCH: Hand-built wooden bicycle which was raffled at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Historic? Or vintage crap? It's coming up for auction on Sun, Jan 31, 2021 in the USA. Auctioneer's description: "outstanding original 1904 St. Louis World's Fair wooden bicycle." It's early 1900s and has a subsequent owner's paperwork with it that connects it with the 1904 World Fair, but it's a home-made decorative piece that does not look functional. The 1940 photo says it won second prize. But what was the competion for? I don't like it. What do you think? "

It's not mainstream - books for true experts!

Didier Mahistre and Bernard Gougaud: Aux sources de la bicyclette

"The origins of the bicycle are unknown or even opaque, so that specialists are getting lost in it themselves. This simple and rudimentary vehicle is however the sum of human intelligence. After four years of research, analysis of authentic, original and relevant documents, the authors lead us into a mad investigation using tenuous clues to help us discover the path that leads to the birth of the bicycle.

Didier Mahistre consulted, sorted, studied and cross-checked thousands of articles, engravings, lithographs. He worked more particularly on German, French, English, American, Swiss ... invention patents from 1790 to 1892.

The patent, beyond the simple administrative writing, is the instantaneous and reflected digest of the ingenuity of its inventor who decides to transcribe at a very precise moment his imagination, his vision and his technical innovations thus anticipating societal upheavals. It is there, in the description of the thesis and in the drawings which accompany it, that it layers its subtlety.

Bernard Gougaud, meanwhile, a connoisseur of the bicycle in all its forms, has sorted and validated the technical hypotheses and digested the sum of extraordinary information discovered by Didier Mahistre.

The two authors give us here the sources, the archives and the studies in the context of the different eras, to guide us and to base, in the light of these, our own analysis.

Supporting evidence, the bicycle, our modern bicycle was born in France 150 years ago ... Discover the name of its inventor, which you will now hear about. Also read, the real fakes of the famous Michaux case. ”
