Shown here is the legendary tricycle, "Potlicky". :cool:

That is the nickname bestowed upon it by the original owner when she was a little girl. It is a late 1950's AMF 10" Junior model in blue that has been barn brushed white.

It is in for restoration - not museum quality but within reason in order to be passed on to her grand-kids and be ridden.

The frame, handlebars, wheels, and saddle carriage will be blasted and repainted at a local body shop. The colors will be matched as closely as possible to the OG model in a blue/white paint scheme. The saddle will then be recovered at a local auto upholstery shop. Thankfully the bearings, pedals, and tire rubber are good.

New grips, headtube decal, reassembly and then it's off to the races! The slightly bent handlebars shall remain part of Potlicky's character.
