    1930s (Colson?) tricycle for sale

    That's a beautiful example of the Mickey Mouse tricycle. The art deco looking head badge and more streamlned seat top put this one in the 1934-35 range. The 1933-34 models had a standard looking long spring saddle and different head badge design - photo examples are in this CABE topic -...

    1930s (Colson?) tricycle for sale

    Yes, as Shawn and Mark mentioned, it was also the round rear step plates that tell me Colson and definitely looks later 1930s to me, too. Colson used both round and oval step plates on different models/different years. The 1934 Mickey Mouse trike is an example of their oval step use. The Lady...

    Kid's trike identify make & year please?

    The head badge decal is Garton Toy Co., no earlier than the 1960s. Not sure how many years they used that style head badge but it is a later style. Dave

    The Little Guys

    You're right on the money with that advice! Sometimes I'll pick up old trike parts that I know are very difficult to find in case I come across a tricycle later on needing them. It's near impossible to restore trikes that are close to 100 years old missing things like wheels and pedal cranks...

    Nice one! You don't see many little Ivers around. If the seat is original and not restored, it looks almost NOS. Dave

    Beautiful collection! Thank you for sharing the photos. Dave

    Unusual tricycle accessory!

    You can tell that's an older style accessory...the mfr. address in Chicago has a postal zone instead of a zipcode. Neat headlight accessory! Dave

    Late 1920’s Very Early 30’s Start of the Airflow -Believed to be Garton Tricycle with Winged Crank Guards

    Mark, where do you keep finding these rare goodies? You're right about the seat looking cool...I was thinking it was original by the streamlined design until I read your text. My guess would have been Garton based on the straight front fork alone, which was a design feature they used on...

    Coolest Twenties Trike wanted to Share

    Mark, thanks for reposting the photo of your first CK tricycle. I must have missed it the first time around or somehow have forgotten it. Now that makes two chain drive CKs I've seen. Looks really cool with the wood grips, and if that is the original seat it is still in excellent condition. Dave

    Coolest Twenties Trike wanted to Share

    Wowee...another rare tricycle in your collection of unique trikes! :) I take it the wheels were re-tired at some point. Looks like the replacement rubber high wheelers use when replacing tires on their antique bicycles. First CK chain driven tricycle I've ever seen, and have only seen one...

    Merry Christmas!

    Wow...that little Byke looks like it was just unpackaged and assembled from the store. Beautiful restoration! :) Dave

    Grieder Flyer Tricycle

    The Grieder Flyer trikes were the only ones I ever remember seeing with solid wheels all around. A neighbor boy had one of these in a larger size back when we were growing up in the 1950s. I don't believe the seat on this one is original...looks like it came off a Junior Toy trike by the seat...

    Merry Christmas!

    Shawn, thanks for the closeup badge photo for future reference. The bike is in fairly decent shape after around 90 years of use and storage. Hope I'm still in as good of shape at 90. LOL What size wheels does it have, 14" or 16"? Just curious... Dave

    Merry Christmas!

    Thanks for the badge information! I was going to guess Gendron by what I could see of the head badge shape. I can absolutely believe it was a special order. Maybe the doctor personally knew someone high up in the Gendron organization really well, possibly growing up together. Dave

    Merry Christmas!

    Mark, you've got my curiosity up. What name is on the little tandem? I see the head badge still appears to be on it. That's really a super collectable bicycle and extremely rare! Dave
