Oamaru New Zealand Cycle Works (penny farthings and other antique bikes)

We went to New Zealand for vacation this year and came across the Oamaru Cycle Works. Great little shop that was really like a museum. They had just closed, and were about to go for a Penny Farthing ride, but they were kind enough to open up and show us through their collection. I love the old Peterson. It was also cool watching them ride their penny farthings off. Pretty cool place. Hope you enjoy the photos.

Oamaru, New Zealand. It is just a little ways North of Dunedin. We also went to the Blue Penguin Colony here and watched over 100 Blue Penguins come ashore at dusk.

I thought Oamaru was the name of the LBS. I didn't realize it was the city. I should have read your title more closely.

We've been to NZ twice. My brother lives in Christchurch. We've done the North Island and part of the South Island, but haven't made it down to Dunedin yet. The south half of the South Island is on our agenda for our next visit. I'll check out the Cycle Works when we are there.

Thanks for the pictures.
