A local man called with looking to buy rear tires for this. The original Goodyear tires are used but not in bad shape except each one is evenly separated at a cross section. He is not a bicycle collector and does not know what to ask as a selling price. He feels it is rare. I explained rare does not always equal desirable. I was surprised there was little if no information on this site when I did a quick search. The only value he found on the www was a restored one that allegedly sold for $8K.

I took some photos at his place. The rear axle is set up like a pedal car. This machine moves when you push down with your feet on the treadle. The seat also move up and down like a see-saw as the rear wheels turn. Overall in good restorable condition. Nothing broken or repaired that I could see.

PM with any realistic offers or history you may wish to share.

The rear tires should be some standard size semi-pneumatic as used on tricycles of the period. Top Flight, Orco, Clipper, Swan, and other brands could be substituted for the original Goodyears. The smaller front one is more of a pedal tractor front tire size, but should still be available NOS.

Cool tricycle but I like the flamingos more. I have a flamboyance in my yard. It keeps me in touch with my trailer park side

I agree $8K is not a realistic number. He does not feel it is worth $8k. That was the only one he was able to find doing his research.

Thanks to all for the posted pricing info. It is greatly appreciated.

I always wished they made a grown up big wheel! Ya know the plastic street machine that i was always too big and old for! Maybe i just got inspired! Thank you all!
