    Not much here but probably parts. Has a cool old streamline style seat on it very cool. Looks almost like a toolbox seat. Has a hubcap. This one has some cool style to it. Not sure what it is or what time period but nice cooling tricycle. Let me know what you think.

    The head badge shape, and handlebar (along with the stem) and rear oval step plate design tell me it's most likely a Colson tricycle from around 1939/1940. The seat doesn't appear to be original as this style was used on some Mercury (Murray) trikes of the same time period. It probably would have had some type of streamlined style seat, just not this particular design. Not sure if the one hub cap is original or not. Hope this helps a bit.
