Here are some pictures of a bike found, forgotten for generations in a garage.
Does anyone know anything about this remarkable drive system?
It seems that cords connected the cranks to an asymetrical gear or perhaps more accurately pulley on the rear hub.
The point that the cords connected to the cranks could be adjusted, thus changing the effective gear.
Sadly the front wheel is missing and the general condition is rusty to say the least.
The front brake works by simply depressing a pad onto th outside of the front tyre.
Grateful for any ideas about what may be an interesting piece of cycling history.
