COASTING-VEHICLE.

Specification of Letters Patent.

Patented Nov. 6, 1915*.

Application filed January 15, 1917. Serial No. 142,891.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, .RoY C. CASHNER, a oitizen-of the United States, residing at Kansas City, in the county of Jackson and State of Missouri, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Coasting v Vehicles; and 1 do declare the following to be a full, clear, and-exact description of the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part oflthis specification.

My invention relates to coasting vehicles, and \has for its principal object to simpl fy the, contrdl of the vehicle by combimng steering and brake setting parts 111 a single operative element that is simple in construction and operation.

It is also' an object of the invention to provide improved details of structure ,for

facilitating the steering and brake setting operations.

In accomplishing these objects, I have provided improved details of structure, the preferred forms of which are illustrated 1n the accompanying drawings, wherein Figure I is a perspective view of a coasting vehicle constructed according to my invention.

v Fig. II is a longitudinal vertical section of the same.

Fig. III is a transverse section on the line Ill-J11, Fig. H.

Fig. IV is a detail perspective view of the steering post and stop block.

Referring more in detail to the drawings l designates the body of the vehicle, and which preferably consists of a single board, compr sing a rear seatportion 2 and forictire neck 3, the latter provided ":41, forwardly opening slot 4: .h the steering post is projected and vi for guided operation.

Mounted transversely beneath the seat 2 are spaced, if-shaped brackets 5 -5 which preferably seat-against battens 6 that are secured to the body by the bolts 7 whereby the brackets are attached to the seat, and to tatably mounted in bearing portions 8 at the points of the brackets is an axle 9, carwhich the stop block is adapted rying the rear ground wheels 10. The wheels 10 are preferably held in position at their inner sides by the brackets 55 and at their outer sides 'by cotter pins 11 that project through the outer ends of the axles.

a transverse bar 16, the ends of which project beyond the sides 0f the {neck 3 to form foot rests 17-17 and halve iupstanding end t1ps18-18' for retaining tht riders feet on the rests. l l

Mounted in the bearings lei--14 is an axle 19 and pivotally mounted on'theaxle and extending rearwardly therefrom is a block 20, having a shoulder 21 at its free end that is adapted to seat against the upper face of the cross bar 16 to limit the downward movement of the block.

Extending through an opening 22 in the block 20, and revoluble therein is a steering rod 23, having a back-turned upper end por tion 24 on which a steering handle 25 is fixed, preferably by a nut 26, that is threaded onto the end of the rod. Fixed on the lower end of the rod 23 is a yoke 27 comprising spaced side members 2828 having apertures .29-29 in their lower ends, within which an axle 30 is mounted to carry a front steering wheel 31. Assuming that the parts are so constructed, a person sitting on the seat 2 places his feet on the foot rests 17l7 and guides the device by operating the handle 25 to turn the wheel 31 in the direction desired.

lVhen it is desired to stop the vehicle, the handle 25 is pushed forwardly moving the block 20 on its pivotal mounting, so that the periphery of the guide wheel is brought into contact with the cross bar 16 and wipesthe bar to first retard travel of the vehicle and then completely stop the same.

Having thus described my invention what I claim as new therein and desire to'secure by Letters-Patent, is

1. In a vehicle, the combination of a body, a brake bar, running gear comprising a steerable ground Wheel movable to contact gagement by the ground wheel when the "block is moved on its transverse axis.

3. In a vehicle, a body member, a brake bar on the body member, a block pivoted to the body member on a transverse axis and arranged for engagement with the bar to limit its movement in one direction, a handle rod rotatably mounted in the buck, and a ground wheel mounted on said ro l and adapted for engagement with the l :ake bar.

l. in a vehicle comprising a body having a brake member thereon, a steering wheel movable to contact the brake Lemhcr, and a handle for controllingsaid wheel to steer tie same or effect contact of the wheel with the brake member.

5. In a vehicle, the combination with a. body, a brake member on the body, a block pivotally mounted in said body, a handle rod rotatably mounted in said block, and

steering wheel on said rod movable by the rod to contact with said bralcemomber.

6. A. coasting vehicle comprising a body, a pair of supporting wheels mounted at one end of said body, a block pivotally mounted at the forward end of said body, a steering rod revolubly extending through said block, a steering wheel connected with said yoke, a handle on the upper end of said rod, and means for limiting the downward movement of the pivoted block.

ets mounted at opposite sides of the frame,

a cross bar attached to said brackets adapted ito limit the downward movement of the said 7 hlock. a steering rod extending throughsaid block and revoluble therein, a yoke mounted on the lower end of said rod bearing against said block, a steering Wheel mounted on said yoke, a handle on the upper end of said steering: rod adapted to actuate the steering a heel and whereby said block may be moved on its pivotal amounting to br ng said steern; wheel into contact with the said cross bar.

8. In a vehicle, a body comprising a rear seat portion and a neck having a slot open- 1 ing through its front end, a block pivotally mounted on a transverse axis and movable In said slot, a rod rotatably mounted in said bar when the rod is moved forwardly above its axis.

9. In a vehicle, a body comprising a rear seat portion and a neck having a slot opening through its front end, a transverse brake bar suspended from said body, a block. pivotally mounted on a transverse axis and movable in said slot, a rod rotatably mounttut in said block, and a steering wheel cars ried by said rod and adapted for contact with the brake bar when the rod is moved forwardly above its axis.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signature.
