The ultimate fixed gear

This was listed on Tulsa Craigslist today. It's a reproduction of a penny farthing from the late 19th century. The owner is asking $1495 and I honestly do not know if that's a good price for one of these bikes. The headbadge says "Boneshaker".

I remember these from the 70s. I was tempted to ride one but never had the chance. These days the prospect of that long fall would scare me.

The photo above was reduced and desaturated. The original shows the copper finish and is much nicer.
