    I posted this trike a few years ago looking for info and since then I fixed it up a bit. I feel like it was the right choice and I am much happier with it although normally I am the kind of person that likes to leave things untouched. It was lacking too much original paint, almost none, to not touch it.

    Originally I was only able to find one pic online of one example of this model and the other thing I found is attached to the trike, an advertisement page of the exact model by Garton but it is without a year.

    Even though it is small it was kind of tough putting this thing back together. I haven't been able to find a front fender yet though, I may have to make one. Either way I love it and thought I would share.

      Great tricycle. I have been looking for a good vintage one but when I scan them with mu old-o-meter in comes up recent. Fantastic restore job too.

      I immediately thought of Shirley Temple movie - but not the same.
