SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 335.350, dated February 2, 1886.
Application tiled October-24, 1885. Serial No. 180,795. (No model.)
To all whom t may concern.'
Be it known that I, CHARLEs H. GLEAsoN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Kalamazoo, county of Kalamazoo, State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Cart for Horse-Training, of which the following is a specification.
The object of this invention consists in certain improvements to effect desirable results in the use of this class of vehicles, and to sirnplify and cheapen the construction.
An important result attained in thisinvention consists in centrally fulcruining the rigid bars which hear the scat by means of hinged hails, and in providing` springs on each side, secured to the thill at one end and pivotally connected to the end of the seat-hars at the other end, so that when the seat-hars rock in the hails under the weight of the rider said hars will move endwise to conform to the lengthening of the springs,which springs have an unlimited yielding capacity` and individually support the forward end of each seat-h u'.
In the drawings, forming a part of this specification, Figure l is a side elevation with one wheel removed; Fig. 2, a top view; Fig. 3, an enlarged detail of parts B a e in Fig. l; Fig. 4, parts in Fig. 3, looking from a point at the left hand; and Fig. 5 is an enlarged view of parts in Fig. l, with an additional feature, all below described in detail.
Referring to the relerence-letters marked on the drawings, B Bare the seat-bars, converging toward their rear end,where they hear the seat D, which is secured to them. Aflat harspring, C, is secured to the thills on each side, and the forward end of each seat-bar is pivotally connected with the free end of the springs C C.
At a point substantially central between the forward end of the seat-bars and the seat D said seat-bars are fulcrumed in hails a, a casting, e, having a groove to fit over the lower bar of the hail, being secured to the under side of the hars B. Thus the hars rock or teter on this bail-fulcrum. The hails a a are hinge-connected to the cross-har of the thills, so as to swing backward and forward in accordance with the lengthening and shortening 0f the springs C during their spring action, Figs. Il., 3, 4. The body, consisting of two bent bars, U, provided with Hoor r, and secured to the seatbars B, swings with the seat-bars and seat when the vehicle is in motion, and thus they always preserve the same position to each other as they have when the vehicle is at rest.
In Fig. 5 an additional spring, w, is shown, which may he employed to assist in cushioning the seat. This spring fr is secured at one end to the seat-har, and the free end of the spring is hinged to the lower bar of the bail a. This sustains the hars B above said lower har ofthe hails. By the use of the springs x less effect of t-he motion of the horse is experienced hy the rider.
Having thus described myinventiou, whatI claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-
l. ln a two-wheeled vehicle, the combination of the thills, the seat-supporting hars, hails hinged to the thills and forming a swinging fulcrnm to thcseat-bars, and the springsone on each side-secured to the thills and having their free ends pivotally connected with the forward ends of the seat-bars,snhstantially as set forth.
2. The combination of the scat-hars, springs secured to the thills, the forward end thereof heilig pivotally connected with the end of the seat-hars, and springs connecting the under side ofthe scat-hars, and hails hinged to the thill-bar, the lower bar of said hails connecting with the latternamed springs, substantially as set forth.
In testimony of the foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name in presence of two witnesses.
