    Welcome to the tricycle forum

    Hedstrom made tricycles for many years - from the 1930s (possibly earlier?) to at least into the 1990s, I believe. The models like yours with the open step plate holes were produced from around the late 1930s into the 1940s. In later years the frame design changed and the main frame tube had a...

    Neat wagon

    That is a very good price IMO for the condition it's in - still beyond my budget but a great price none the less. These were made from the late 1800s to the 1920s. I'm guessing around 1910 for this one. Definitely an antique!

    Neat wagon

    I would love to know what they were asking for the treadle model tricycle with rear wheel fenders. It looks exactly like the one I tried bidding on at a live auction several years ago. That one topped out at $1200, which was $900 more than what I had on me. Dave

    Welcome to the tricycle forum

    Here's another Hedstrom Tubecraft tricycle head badge decal photo similar to the link on my previous post. You can clearly see those openings in the rear step plate that was a Hedstrom design of that era. The decal shape matches the outline on your trike head tube exactly.

    Welcome to the tricycle forum

    The design feature that positively identifies the maker is the open, tear drop shaped holes in the rear step plate. This is a Hedstrom tricycle. I'm guessing very late 1930s to 1940s. From the outline of where the head badge was located, it is probably one of their Tubecraft trike models...

    Welcome to the tricycle forum

    Judging by the shape of the head badge and badge screw placement, I believe your dad was riding a Gendron Pioneer tricycle. Was this trike passed down from an older sibling or other family member? I ask because the rat trap style pedals would indicate the tricycle is several years older than the...

    1948 Roberts Nabisco Ride-on van

    Here's a possible source for replacement rear wheels - https://thomastoysantiquetoyparts.com/ They have an ad on the rear page of a pedal car collector book I bought years ago. I believe they sell smaller tires and wheels for toddler ride on toys. Dave

    VeloKing

    Looks like this is another Velo King from the mid/late 1930s. Well worth rescuing from the dump even though in rougher shape. Not sure what value I'd put on it. That front pedal crank missing a pedal has probably rounded off inside the hub. The crank end was normally square to fit the square...

    My Holy Grail Pedal Car!

    Beautiful vintage pedal car! Now I'll bet you are wishing you were still small enough to take it for a spin around the block. ;) Oh, and very nice display of old trikes and cars you have surrounding the G Man Cruiser. Dave

    Velo king wheels ?

    Definitely not the original rear wheels, but it would be interesting to research what they came off of. Possibly an old antique wagon or other ride on toy that someone found in a flea market or antique store. The hubcaps are the original Velo King caps. Dave

    1962 Murray Fire Cheif tricycle - Restoration project - Parts needed

    Not sure what you have in Portugal in the way of bicycle shops, but that might be one source for grips and streamers if any are local to you. Large department stores also can have sporting goods departments that sell bike/trike parts, even auto parts stores sometimes sell bicycle items. You can...

    1920’s Gendron Pioneer with Adjustable bars

    The seat covering and tires have really held up well on this early Gendron Pioneer! Dave
