However, the front wheel has 38 spokes, and it is known that the English manufactured versions were fitted with a larger number of spokes. Given that it was found in Portugal, it’s possible that the bike could have been manufactured by a blacksmith in a Portuguese workshop.

The front wheel is 1.40m in diameter, the rear wheel is 40cm and the tyres are made from solid rubber.
