Want to add a touch of class to your wheeled steed? How about adding custom made wood fenders. Check out link below for WOODY'S FENDERS. Not only does he make flat fenders but curved fenders as well. The ones on my bike receive many nice comments and questions.

This is a mid 1880's Penny Farthing. It  is in fair condition and is still rideable. We use it at the Hearthside House 1904 Worlds Fair event. I simply love it. I dare not try to ride it. Maybe next year when I complete my riding outfit.

Oh and I quite forgot to commend the good Dr. Westering for the lovely photos of his local tweed ride.

So ladies...when you bike, is it short skirts, bloomers, knickerbockers or tights?  Or a combination?

I posted this in the Guild of Cycle Mechanics; I thought it might go well here also.

For those interested in DIY, here is an Instructable for making a bamboo bike frame, with links to others: http://www.instructables.com/id/Bamboo-Bike-2/ . There were a fair number of bamboo-framed bicycles in the 19th Century, and even a company that specialized in their making, with specially-grown bamboo. Alibaba.com sells bamboo bikes (http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Eco-friendly-Bamboo-Bicycle_1...), but I have never had dealings with them, so I do not know how hard it would be to buy one from them. One might make an interesting base for a conversion to a Victorian-style bike.
