Cool,
Where can I find the story?
And where did he get that pith helmet and where does one find tires for a Penny Farthing?

and he makes the tyres from cutting regular solid tyres and gluing them together then glues a bit of tread on that is easier to regularly replace.

No ideas on helmet..

Cheers,
Our whole city can't even manage a decent recycling program. Looks like you guys are covering everyone's transport needs!
Great example that just about anything can be managed by human powered transport.
