I never knew that this trike existed until I got the ‘37 Steelcraft catalog today. The color registration is misaligned but you get the idea. If anyone has a lead on one of these I’m very interested! This is a grail trike fo sho! V/r Shawn

Boy the first time little Billy or Lilly takes that pod rear point to the face, chest, or stomach game over for that trike. What a killer design though!

I'm thinking that pod must be smaller than what was mounted on the bicycle but have never seen a smaller pod. BTW the cat also shows boys tank, 20" deluxe Merc pod bike as well. I'm not big on 20" bikes but that would be killer. V/r Shawn

They show a 1937 catalog page with these trikes in the book "Riding Toys", too. The only actual photo I've seen of one is on page 185 of that same collector book, though it doesn't show a pod accessory on the catalog page or the photo. Never saw one of these trikes in person either. It definitely is a rare model.

The trike on pg 185 and the '37 ad (Pg 76) in the Riding Toy book just show the deluxe version without the pod--it was sold both ways. The Steelcraft catalog shows a lot more models than what is shown in the Riding Toy book. Got mine from Scott @sm2501 V/r Shawn
