Mystery Solved

    What does the badge on the front say?
  2. Dortstarter, 4 years ago
    There's not a badge on the front it might be missing. Theres a manufacturer label on the front that says evans
  3. Pop_abides Pop_abides, 4 years ago
    It's a ca. 1960 Evans brand. Value depends on for what ?
  4. mickey b, 4 years ago
    That thing is awesome! Hard to tell from the pic but is it large enough to be a child's tricycle? If so, could the storage in back be used as a small cooler? The possibilities are endless...
  5. kadachrome, 4 years ago
    nice trike, I like how you told the guy it said "evans" on it and the expert replied that the trike is an "evans brand". That's an astounding bit of deduction on his part. Hope that solved the mystery for you!

    Just for kadachrome, I found my infothe old fashioned way...........research....................google this:http://www.tricyclefetish.com/blog/tag/evans/

    the 'old guy' said that !
  7. Pop_abides Pop_abides, 4 years ago
    By the way, the Manufactures plate on the front is called 'The Badge" on Bicycles and Tricycles.....Just F.Y.I.

    Thank you guys for the help! Any ideal what this is worth?
  9. tigerterry, 4 years ago
    So you say you researched it but all you came back with is the same info that Dortstarter provided? You're keeping all the other info for yourself? Not sure anyone believes that but nice try. BTW the comment on "the badge" is incorrect, there is no real designation about what the manufacturers plate is called. Did you make that up to sound like an expert?

    I hate to drag this out but, straight from the tricycle fetish web site noted above:
    One of the most common type of questions that we get here at TricycleFetish.com is concerning headbadge, decals and company stickers. When restoring an old tricycle, you might be able to get it to look like new with out too much trouble, but there’s always the issue of original decals and artwork. There is no simple solution to finding original headbadges and decals. They are brand specific and vary greatly between brands, and most companies changed their own designs several (or dozens) of times over the course of their existence.

    Headbadges were made of tin, brass, transfer decals, stickers and paint. The easiest of these to find are the metal ones, as there is a collecting field for old bicycle headbadges and collectors and dealers of these sometimes have tricycle badges as well. Sometimes these can be found in online auctions, stores and classified ads, but they are still rare and finding them is difficult; finding the correct headbadge can be impossible. Another place to find headbadges is at bicycle swap meets.
    That's the last I'm going to say on the issue..
