WE DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THIS KIND OF A BIKE. WE ARE NOT SURE IF IT REALLY IS AN OLD VINTAGE BIKE OR A VERY GOOD REPLICA. IF ANY ONE KNOWS WHAT YEAR THAT THIS BIKE MIGHT HAVE BEEN MADE OR BY WHOM. IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. IT HAS METAL WHEELS, WOODEN HANDLES AND THE SEAT SEEMS TO BE FADING, NOT SURE ABOUT THE MATERIAL ON THE SEAT. THANKS FOR ANY HELP. WE WILL BE WATCHING TO SEE IF ANY BODY CAN HELP US. THANK YOU.

Unsolved Mystery

    From a site called "Tricycle fetish" : ............There are a number of things that can better help a buyer determine if a tricycle is a fake or actually a real antique.

    Wooden seats - most antique tricycles did not have wooden seats, although a few did. If a tricycle is from before 1900 and has a wooden seat, it should show lots of wear and age.
    Philips head screws - No Philips head screws in the 1800's.
    Welds - before electricity, there was no welding. If you see someone selling a tricycle with welds with claims it was made before 1890, they are lying. Welds on any tricycle prior to 1900 are very rare, if not non-existent.
    Hex nuts & bots - genuine antiques do not have six sided bolts holding anything together. The earliest tricycles with bolts and nuts will have four sided nuts.
    Steel covered wood wheels - although I have seen example of authentic tricycles with wooden wheels with strap steel over the wood (like metal tires), it is very rare. Few were produced like this, and even fewer survive. Most likely wood and steel together on the wheels means it is a fake - especially if any of the other things listed in this section occur on the tricycle as well.

    I noticed the nuts and bolts in the seat.....................can't really see much else...
