Dan Bolwell, pennyfarthing engineer, is in Melbourne, Victoria.
Dan has been building Penny Farthings since 2005.
He began in the Western Victorian regional town of Horsham.
His trade derives from a need to follow his passion, individual skill and ultimate dream,
and to spread the enjoyment he has found from these beautiful bikes.
His customers are all over and from all walks of life;
everyone is interesting and amazing in their own right. It seems that it takes a wonderful and special kind of person to want to own such a great machine.
Dan builds the entire bike by hand in his workshop, now in Melbourne, like they were built in 1880, while using modern materials for strength and reliability. Every component is built with fine detail.
Dan can build any design, style and colour you like. They are not just a bike, but a piece of art.
