Look Ma, No Hands!
Good morning/afternoon/evening!

I have another strange machine to show all of you. I haven't been able to find anything like it. My best guess would be that it's a custom-made tricycle, maybe for decoration? I wanted to check with all of you first though.

I live for the CABE
It's definitely not a newer reproduction. As far as age, I'd guess around 1920 or thereabouts. It's a typical strap steel frame tricycle which were made since the later 1800s. The seat, pedal, and tire/wheel style suggest the circa 1920 guesstimate. The only strange thing about it is the extended and dog legged handlebar support. Looks like it was modified to accommodate a larger rider with long legs. Never saw anything like it before. Very interesting find!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I agree
Looks like late teens to early z20’s strap steel
Green color and frameset look similar to Gendron manufacturer
Modified bars for whatever reason were custom add on or used for planned purpose
Definetly uniquely odd probably 1 of a kind
Thanks for posting
Balance of trike is great for its age !!
