WRIGHT CYCLE COMPANY
WRIGHT CYCLE COMPANY 
Wright Cycle Co. check

Wright Cycle Co. check dated December 26, 1907, made out and signed "Wright Cycle Co., o. w." by Orville Wright, co-inventor of the airplane. Payable to the Wright Brothers' sister, Katherine Wright. Along with younger brother Lorin, she managed the day-to-day business affairs of the Wright Cycle Company. This is a very rare example of the Wright Brothers' Bicycle Company account, entirely in the hand of Orville Wright, and is one of only a handful of these documents in private hands. A rare artifact from the bicycle shop that changed the world.
