Isn’t she sweet?
We purchased her from a local lady and she’s missing her treadle, flyer and bobbin. Altogether though, she is in great shape!
Check out her ‘redness’! I think she was originally a red wheel with a black stripe on the wheel itself, on the inner ‘ring’ of the wheel.
Her hub is solid with only a couple small cracks. Her wheel is slightly seperated but should come back together with a little coaxing, oiling and perhaps the dryness of winter will help if nothing else does. Certainly, my other wheels become quite loose during the winter season.
The leathers are perfect and the rear leather is amazing….a solid chunk of leather!
Hoping to spend some quality time with this lady in the upcoming week and build her a new treadle. I’ll need to find her a flyer or see if one of my other wheels has a flyer which would work as a loaner for now 🙂
Have a fantastic day!
