A little 2 cylinder Maxwell. I love her hat.
In the town of Cedarville.
Mike and his Holsman highwheeler.
Round belt drive to the rear wooden (modern Amish) wheels. Some of the brake and drive linkages and gears can be seen in this photo. Note the long leaf springs. There is no traditional frame on this car, the springs act as the frame. Which makes it interesting when Mike straps it onto the trailer for the 6 hour freeway blast back to home. He found that tie downs only pulled the springs and made the wheelbase longer, without holding the car tight on the trailer. Some rigid supports in the trailer bed now hold up the center of the car, and the four corners can be tied down.
on old County Road 60, heading east. Snow is still in the mountains.
