Can anyone tell us what this is,how old and value?
Someone had painted it brown, when I tried to wash it with oil soap the brown was washing off so I stopped. I appears to be yellow under the brown, how should I clean it, Or should I just leave it as it is?

    Here is a place that can likely answer your questions. It looks to be from the 1870's but let us know what you find out !

    I have one real similar to yours. Have you had any luck finding out if it is real or repro? Do you know the value and if so what are they worth? Thanks,....John

    I am looking at buying one now and have done some research.If it is genuine antique,it will not have:any welds,6 sided bolts(should be 4 sided),phillips head screws or bolts.

    What I found was that one like yours sold at auction 5 yrs ago that they said was a French Velocipede, Garnier Tricycle. It sold for $600. Only found reference to one made like yours, all the rest have handle bars coming out the top of the head made like regular tricycle handlebars. Hope this helps.
