Thanks to @cr250mark for the heads up on this one on Ebay. A little back and forth with the seller and we struck a deal. I don't like using the term 'rare' let alone 'extremely rare' but this tricycle genuinely falls into that category. Most of the Skippys were steel and the frame of this trike is cast aluminum. Like Mark I've only seen a handful of balloon tire trikes and this is my second one. The other is a Hedstrom Minuteman. If anyone has original literature for this exact tricycle or any pics of an original I would very much like to see them. V/r Shawn

You're right...this one is definitely up there in the rare category. Very nice find! I've never seen one like it before.
