    A lady friend of mine picked this bike up on offer up for 40$. Just want to know if she wasted her cash. To me it looks like a reproduction. it does look kind of cool though. any info will be appreciated thanks

    Not a loss at all. Cool lil trike that should clean up nicely. I picked one up for my nephew a few years ago in a lil nicer condition. IIRC I paid around $75. I think she did just fine:cool:

    Still pretty cool for the money, not a real Sky King but at least you'll have the look of one. I would have bought it.

    I'd of spent 40 on it, even a repo is worth that. But my son has already outgrown tricycles. And I'd have bought it anyway.

    I agree the $40 price was worth it. At least these repros are rideable, unlike the decorative trikes made to look like antiques you see so many times for sale, that some sellers ask a lot for and swear they are that old.

    Pink? Nephew? Ah well, I may have lived too long, but I assume that you've warned him about the dangers of drinking and driving.

    They are wobbly. Wear a helmet.
