Charlie on a high-wheel bicycle, c. 1919

See Charlie and Sydney try, unsuccessfully, to ride it here.


  1. I never understood the "big wheel" design. Why wouldn't you start with 2 wheels that are the same size? But that aside, that would have been a great prop in one of his shorts. I remember him trying to get on or hold up his motorcycle - this huge bike would have been hilarious. (but potentially dangerous too I guess!)

  2. Does he have his mustache on?
