The reason that many older men shave (or grade 1) their head is because they have thinning hair and don't like 'comb-overs'  which don't fool anyone and can lift up in the wind!   Paul and both my lads have almost shaven heads and I think they all look good.

Vintage trike question: Is this model of trike adapted for two people to pedal as per tandem or is it just one person pedalling?

Found the one closest to your picture Compo, A Starley's Royal Salvo tricycle made by Starley's of Coventry about 1876, the riders are using a Starley's patent lever motion to move the cycle
