    I believe that's about the most well preserved Elgin Racer tricycle I've ever seen. Beautiful original! :)

    I'd like to know too. I've had this example for decades. Wrong brake knob (brass). Is there a date code or serial# on these?

    Not a date code that I seen
    They were produced 1935-38 approx. 3 years.
    Couple different wheel sizes.
