SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 450,166, dated April 14, 1891.
Application filed February 18, 1890. Serial No. 340,841. (No model.)
To all whom it may concern.-
Be it known that I, HENRY H. LOOKWOOD, a citizen of the United States, residing at Olean, in the county of Oattaraugus and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Wheeled Vehicles; and
I do hereby declare the following to be a full,
clear, and exact description of theinvention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
This invention relates to certain improvements in vehicles, which will be hereinafter more particularly described and pointed out. In the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, Figure 1 is a side elevation of a vehicle with the improvements attached. Fig. 2 is a top or plan view of onehalf of the running-gear. Fig. 3 is an elevation of one-half of the axle and springs, &c. Figs. 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 are details enlarged. A represents the seat of the vehicle, and A the seat-riser.
B is the shaft, B the circle bar, and B the I back bar.
C is the pole, which is constructed as follows: A solid piece of suitable timber is sawed along the lines 0 c c, (be, and c c" c, &c., from the end C to 0, thus forming three strips of equal dimensions. Three or more separate pieces may be thus combined. The middle strip 0 is intended to pass through the mortises in the bars B B, forming a tenon to each bar, and the outside pieces D D will pass over the bars B B, and the three or more strips will be secured at the two ends by screw-bolts d in the usual manner to make the end parts solid. The strips will be held apart by spools c e, rise, through which and the strips will pass screw-bolts (1 cl, dsc, as shown in Fig. 1. This method will form a substantial trussed pole much lighter and stronger than when of solid material.
E E are the foot-rest bars, designed to be readily detachable by means of the following devices, which are in detail enlarged in Figs. 6, 7, s, and 9.
F is the spring-bar.
G is the spring.
Under the spring-bar F at each end is a hanger-F. (Shownin Fig.5.) In thishanger is a socket f (shown in dotted lines) for the reception of the hooks e e on the the upperends of the foot-restbars EE. The other ends of the bars E E have hooks e e, which engage the staples e e" under the back bar E.
f is a button pivoted to thehanger, so that when the foot-bars E are in place the button f will prevent the end e from jumping out of the socket or mortise f.
When it is desired to remove the foot-rest, by turning the buttons f the hooks e can be lifted out and the foot-rest dropped down, and the other ends e can be easily detached from the staples e When the vehicle is wide, a middle footrest bar will be required. E, Fig. 6, represen ts such a middle bar, which has at one end a hook 6, similar to the outside foot-rest bars E, which drops into a socket f in'a hanger which is cast upon the plate of the middle clipholder G, Fig. 8. This middle foot-rest bar E extends under the foot-rest slats about one-third of the distance only.
In Figs. 3 and 4 is represented the method of suspending the ends of the spring G. His a standard, having on its end a ball h. This standard is forged on to the shaft-rim I, as seen in Fig. 1. A spring-stirrup is formed of two similar parts J J, having at their upper ends concavities h to fit over the ball h, so that when bolted together, the whole will form a ball-and-socket or universal joint. To the lower end of the spring-stirrupJ J is attached the end of the spring G inthe usual manner.
In Fig. 9 is represented a device to deaden the spring. K is a wheel-axle. On the middle clip K of the axle is a projection having a hole It, which is in line longitudinally with the center bolt g, of the spring G. 70 is a short brace fitted at its lower end to enter the hole 70 in the clip-plate K, and has a shoulder k to prevent it from dropping. Its upper end is curved so that it will come directly under the spring-clip L, and in the end of K is a hole Z, to receive the lower end of the springbolt When it is desirable to deaden the spring, the brace It) is to beinserted in the hole It, and the bolt g is to be inserted in the hole Z, when the spring will be sustained by the brace.
I am made aware that a two-wheeled vehicle has been provided with a foot-rest detachably connected thereto, such foot-rest being secured by nuts which have to be taken off when the foot-rest is to be removed.
In my device I use pivoted catches which are simply turned and are not removed from the Vehicle, and hence are in no danger of being lost.
What I claim is- 1. The combination of a two-Wheeled vehicle with a removable foot-rest detachably connected at both ends with the vehicle and pivoted catches at one end, whereby the footrest is held from accidental displacement and may be removed by turning the catches and Without removing them from the vehicle, as set forth.
2. The combination, of the spring-bar F,
