The Rochester was one of the many light steam buggies of the period. t had a vertical 2-cylinder engine, single chain drive, and tiller steering. Like most of its contemporaries, it had full elliptic springs at the rear, and a single transverse elliptic at the front, but an "unusually flexible frame" was said to allow 15 inches of vertical movement by either front wheel without appreciable disturbance of body level.
