TWO WHEBLED VEHICLE.

No. 375,130. Patented Deo.20,188'7.

lhxnTEri STATES PATENT OFFICE.

LUKE COONEY, JR., OF KALAMAZOO, MICHIGAN.

Two-WHEELED VEHICLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent. No. 375,130, dated December 20, 1887.

Application filed May 15, 1887. Serial No. 238,360. (No modell) To all whom it may concern.-

Beit known that I, LUKE COONEY, Jr., a citizen ofthe United States, residing at Kalaniazoo, county of Kalamazoo, State of Michigan, have invented a new and useful Two- Wheeled Vehicle, of which the following is a specification.

This invention relates to vehicles having a body fulcrumed at the forward endto the thills or cross-bar of the thills and supported over the axle by spiral springs; and it has for its object the belowdescribed construction and peculiar association of parts.

In the drawings, formingapart of this specitleation, Figure l is a side elevation with one thill broken away and one wheel removed; Fig. 2, a plan of about one-half the vehicle, and Fig. 3 shows enlarged lettered details in perspective.

Referring to the lettered parts of the drawings, l? are the seat bars or body, fulcrulned in the ordinary manner to the thills, or thill erossbar, if preferred. The spiral springs o have a rearwardly-extended bar, c, attached to the axle, (or other suitable support,) preferably by a shackle, a, and at theinner end of the spiral thespring extends in a bar, c', forward, and then rearward in V shape, or any other suitable form. This latter bar, c', is rigidly attached atsuitable points to hold it firmly to the beamst' of the body, about in the center, as indicated, bystaples, in Fig. 3, so as to fix `the springs o horizontally and laterally pro` jecting from the sides of the bodyP, Fig. 2.

It will be observed that the part of the 3 5 spring shown at o is merely for securely attaching and holding the spiral o, and does not in any sense have a spring action beyond the staple S, Fig. 3.

Among the points of utility, aside from the 4o well-known desirable action of spiral springs, may be named simplicity and ease of construction, less strain on the thills, and less danger of the springs breaking.

Having thus described my invention, what 45 I claim is l. In combination, the fulcrumed body or seatbars, the axle, and the spiral springs attached to the sides of the body, and having the rear bars shackled to the axle and the for- 5o wardly-bent bar rigidly attached to the under side of the body, substantially as set forth.

2. In combination, the fulcrumed body, the axle, and the spiral springs atthc sides of the body, said springs having the V-bars rigidly 55 attached to transverse beams beneath the body, and having the rear bars shackled 4to the axle, substantially as set forth.

In testimony of the foregoing I have hereunto subscribed my name in presence of two 6o witnesses.

LUKE COONEY, JR.
