Coogee resident Frank Baldoni will display his one-off Swansea racer at the Our Hidden Cycling History exhibition.

The exhibition, called Our Hidden Cycling History, features a penny farthing built in 1874, a 1905 Rover safety bicycle and the 1950 Speedwell which carried Arthur Hartley thousands of kilometres in the South-West during his teaching career.

With them is Coogee resident Frank Baldoni’s one-off Swansea racer and World Champion Steele Bishop’s bike, ridden by him to capture the 1983 5000 metre Individual Pursuit crown in Switzerland.

The exhibition runs until March 27.
