A Twenty Five Cent Bicycle

The February 1, 1896, "Scientific American" revealed the prototype of
the Fury Roadmaster, somewhat prematurely, in "A Twenty Five Cent
Bicycle," page 72:

On the upper right of the same page, an amazing new bicycle lamp is
described, which produced a "remarkably powerful beam" of two
candlepower by means of a miniature electrical magneto turned by the
front tire.

Frank Krygowski is said to be pursuing the invention. :-)
