ToyCollect…
(1 item)

My parents and I picked this in a yard sale in Baltimore, MD a few years back. The person selling the item said it had been up in his attic for many years. I can't remember how long he said, but I think he said 20-30 years or possibly better.

There are parts of the Trike that make me think it is original and old, such as the heavy steel, the fading of the red pain to pink, and the style. However, there are other parts that leave me wondering such as the plastic battery box underneath the headlight.

There are three decals. One on the front and one on each side. One of the decals on the side is starting to peal off. The decal says " AIRFLOW AFC COLLECTIBLE INC" Orange California on the front and "Sky-King" and there is a pat no.

I attempted to locate more info on the trike using the web and found that these have been produced over the years several times, but I am not sure how old mine is.

Does anyone know any more details about it such as where and when it was made and the value? We picked this one for $50.00. Thanks!

    Does this solve your mystery or is there something else?

    Thanks, forgot to close it out. I heard back from AFC, very nice folks there. He said he thought this one was made around early 2000.
