Domestic Boneshaker
Domestic Boneshaker
Made smaller to fit the size of the Japanese body.
Domestically produced boneshaker dating back to around 1877. The iron frame, which was most likely produced by blacksmiths, was built on a smaller scale to fit the Japanese physique. The wheel diameter was also smaller, and when compared to the 36-inch front wheel and 32-inch rear wheel of the typical Michaux velocipede being produced in various countries, this boneshaker was a much smaller version.
