​Did you ask the store clerk if the case was there? My featherweight dealer removes the bobbin cases because people have been stealing them.

Lost it. Called to buy it and it was gone. Vendor did not have bobbin bits. I asked when I saw

them missing. It is Ok. I guess I was not smitten.

Is that a high wheel? If so, do you actually ride it or just lead it around?

[ATTACH=CONFIG]599023[/ATTACH]I ride it. It has a 38" front wheel. I also have one with a 48" Wheel. I am more nervous about the taller one. I am getting better. They are reproductions. 48 is from about 1975. 38 is 2012ish.

They are often called high wheelers, ordinary, or Pennyfarthing bicycles.
