This is indeed a Grand Lady. Launched in 1870, the Grand-Bi is one of the ancestors of the bicycle. Imagine young women, wearing long dresses and large hats, trying to make that huge wheel turn by pushing that tiny crank!
I found this one at an antique dealer in Hua Hin. The owner was more than happy to have me photograph it on the street in front of his shop.
Bit of a typo up there “is one the ancestors”… Feel free to delete this comment…
Thanks Blake… I would NEVER delete any of your comments. Stef
