This particular Boycycle was made about 1927 based on the unique frame style where the center tube of the frame extends all the way down to the foot rest. In most years it stopped where it intersected the horizontal tube. The original seat would have had long springs.
Yes, the seat on it right now is a Murray Mercury trike seat from around the early 1950s. Here's a couple photos of the Girlcycle model with it's uniquely shaped main frame tube. I'm guessing it dates to the late teens/early 1920s, but MrColumbia might be able to pinpoint a closer estimate on age. -Dave
WANTED the period correct seat and seat post for a COLUMBIA BOYCYCLE tricycle that I own.
There is a metal pan seat with about a 7/16" diameter straight seat post affixed to it now and is amazingly the same reddish-orange original color as is on the rest of the frame/fork. Would this seat with affixed post be original for my 1927 year?
Guessing mine is approximately 1927 like MrColumbia pointed out in his earlier reply as mine has the frame extending to the rear axle.
Any brochure or pictorial information shown form my year tricycle is appreciated if you can email it to me at my computer email address below (don't send to my phone as it is an old flip phone and photos are tiny).
