When it comes to tricycles, there are few designs that are quite as peculiar or indeed as ingenious as the Coventry Rotary, an old-school tricycle that featured a truly unique and eye-catching design.

Developed by British cycle designer James Starley and manufactured in the city of Coventry in the late 19th century, the Coventry Rotary tricycles gained attention for their design, which comprised one big wheel on the left and a pair of smaller wheels on the right. Now, this historically significant tricycle can be yours if you're willing to shell out somewhere between $7,000 and $10,000 at a Bonham's auction.

The Coventry Rotary is truly one of the most spectacular and strikingly designed tricycles ever made, and its availability on an auction basis speaks to the timeless nature and long-term influence of this vehicle.
