Penny Farthing Bike

On Display at the Rushworth Museum is this Penny Farthing Bike and is must be over 100 years old. It was made in England by the BSA (British Small Arms) company; this is just one of the 4,500 items which the Museum has on display. The penny farthing bike is a good talking point with many inquires on just how anyone was ever able to ride it.

With spring time here and the Wattle and wildflowers out in Bloom now it is the time to take a look at what the Rushworth Museum has to offer visitors.
