Oldest Wooden Bike in the World Picture

Picture of the world's oldest wooden bike
This is a picture of the worlds oldest wooden bike. Or as the caption says. Is it?

The Riverside Transport Museum (its official name) plays host to the oldest surviving bicycle in the world as part of its collection. This cycle was made by Gavin Delzell in 1846, but it is not the oldest pedal-driven bicycle ever created. That honour goes to Kirkpatrick MacMillan, who is credited as having invented the bicycle in 1840, six years before this one. However, another person was also thought and laid claim to the oldest bike that being Thomas Mccall. An age of invention and inventors. Transport Museum Picture 2
