MMC Two-track Tricycle ca1886 2805
MMC Machine Manufacturing Company ” The Royal Mail Two Track Roadster” 1886.
This so-called two-track Tricycle, where the 20 inch front wheel runs in the same track as the right rear wheel.
This makes it much more easy to steer the tricycle especially on paths with track grooves.
The steering is by rod to the front wheel, there is a band brake on the rear axle and the chain drive is centrally geared.
One of the two 36 inch rear wheels is driven, to avoid a complicated differential.
This tricycle has not been used for a very very long time and is still equipped with the original tires. Also the saddle still has the original leather and especially the horn handles are in very good original condition.
Traces of the original paint and striping are still present.
