Where is the bicycle? In Italy? I'm just thinking about the transport angle.

ciao , I have a 'friend', a bicycle collector here in Ulster who has several similar yokes, he asked me about before he acquired them, his are English and from hazy memory are the ones to look for, that is if you were looking.. and he is also seeking locally lovers of this type of industrial torture machine, nor would the transport cost be as hefty.. will

Lovely patina. Looks like it was stored on a cliff top by the sea!
