Specifications:1 hp, single-cylinder air-cooled engine, solid front and rear axles with transmission brake only.The Smith Flyer Buckboard was manufactured by the A.O. Smith Company of Milwaukee, WI, a company that specialized in motor wheel driven bicycles and wooden framed buckboard cars. The Smith Flyer Buckboard consists of a wooden frame surrounded by four wire wheels of the bicycle type, with a fifth smaller wheel mounted centrally in the back and driven by a gasoline engine. Once started, the center wheel is lowered to the ground by a lever mounted beside the steering column and away you go. This 1917 Smith Flyer was purchased by John McMullen in the late 1980s after it had just finished a complete and professional restoration. Both the varnished woodwork and red painted surfaces have been restored to high quality show standards. The Buckboard's wooden seatbacks are carefully pinstriped and gold scripted with the Smith emblem on both sides; the two seat cushions are finished in a charcoal colored vinyl. In like new condition, and fully operational, this piece would be a unique and very fun addition to any collection.
