Throwback: Bicycle Patent From 110 Years Ago

A patent was awarded 110 years ago this month for this snappy bicycle fan. Keeping you cool as you roll! Check out the pulley system operating the fan from the front wheel…and the tidy umbrella to keep the UV rays off the noggin.

Click ‘more’ for a schematic of the pulley system, or to just admire the cool drawings and calligraphy of yesteryear.

Hat tip to Brett for the link!
