    "Gym Dandy Surrey"

    I haven't seen too many of these up for sale EVER! This one is VERY incomplete. Has all 4 wheels, 3 hubcaps, all drivetrain parts are present and function...

    From what I've found out, these were made from the 50's possibly into the early 70's.
    There is talk of it being mentioned or featured on The Art Linkletter show "Kids say the Darndest Things"

    I'm curious if anyone has any interest in trading anything? I like 30'-50's Balloon tire bikes. I'm just testing the waters. It will be put on soon if I get no interesting offers. forsale497Medium-1.jpg

    Any Trades?

    I've only seen 1 complete unit myself! That's actually how I came to realize what this one actually was! It's always spent it's life in a friend of mine's family. I "inherited" it since we grew up together and he moved away to California. From what I hear, it's spent most of it's life in this shape. When he and I met, we were already "too big" to play w/ it much but it was always in the garage for our little cousins, nieces, nephews, etc...

    Without it's canopy it could be more of a "speedster-runabout" version!!

    I've seen the decal kits for sale on E-bay.

    I had one of those that looked like a cycle rickshaw. Closest pic I got was this:

    I bought this Gym Dandy Ricksha at an auction and I would love to restore it but I cannot find any information anywhere on it... I mean anywhere. I cannot even find anyone at Gym Dandy to contact... any help?
