    Does anyone know anything about this delivery, I can't find any info at all. Did they repop these ?
    Thanks in advance, Lee

    I've seen this one but not the delivery. Would be very surprised if it was.

    I have one of the regular Sky King repops but never saw a delivery Sky King before. It looks the real deal to me, too, especially with those balloon tires! A more rare 1930s trike to find, that's for sure.

    I had seen only a picture of only one other years ago- That`s a Rare Bird... Deluxe 1930s Tricycle and Wagon made together. I would guess in an Ebay situation, $500- $700 in your condition. Private Sale- maybe more, maybe less--Depends on your buyer.
    It`s a nice piece...-----Cowboy

    This definitely a sweet little machine. The front wheel is super wide - possibly replaced but the trike is cool proof!

    No, some of these came with Pneumatic Tires- I think it`s original. This was a higher end Tricycle in the 30s...---Cowboy

    Or did someone weld the front end of a trike to a Scamp wagon?

    My thoughts exactly! I own both, an original Sky King and Scamp and it
    certainly looks like they were mated...?
