Mike Wolfe is out filming a new season of American Pickers. He recently pulled out an old antique that he had to take out for a ride. However, this is huge and old, and many fans fear for Wolfe’s safety as he rides it around town.

Here is a look at what Mike pulled out for American Pickers fans and why they fear for his safety.

Mike Wolfe Finds Old Antique Bike, Rides It Around Town

Mike Wolfe has been posting photos lately about recent finds as he films a new American Pickers season. Wolfe recently posted an IG post of old doors that many fans feel are “scary” and “haunted.” Now, Mike has posted a photo of himself on a large antique bike he is riding down a street in Tennessee.

This has fans scared for the American Pickers host. Mike rides a bike with a massive wheel on the front and a small one on the back. This is a penny farthing (or a high-wheel bicycle). These were popular in the 1880s after British engineer, James Starley created them in 1871. The Penny Farthing was the first efficient bicycle.

This, however, isn’t a recent find. Mike posted that he has owned this Voctor Highwheel for 35 years. He said he used to ride it all the time and would head into the country, where he felt “connected to the past.” Mike takes it out now when he needs to “slow down and calm myself.” He said being that high “soothes my soul.”

Fans in the comments seemed concerned about the safety of the highwheel bicycle.

  • “I think I would wear a bike helmet!”
  • “I saw u ride these on pickers and always thought u must be the only one that can do it without falling over”
  • “The bigger the wheel…. The bigger the helmet”
