This look like some kind of Irishmail Cart concept. I have looked and looked on the internet from just searching Ebay, Criagslist, and other websites and I cannot find one like this tricycle. My two other brothers and I had this down at my grandmother house when we were little [45 years ago] and used it all the time. The wheels are solid rubber. It does not have pedals to move the thing. The only way to move this was back breaking. You had to move the sit and the foot bars at the same time, back and forth. I can remember being very tired in 5 min's. But we still used it all the time. Well like I said, I have not been able to find anything about this tricycle. I was wondering the history on it and how much is this tricycle worth?

    I am sorry that I can't help you. My wife and I purchased one just like yours at an auction. No one knew anything about it and I, also have searched everywhere for the make and model.

    I believe its called a Jockey Cycle. Most were made by Donaldson manufacturing in the mid 40's. I can remember the front bar that connected the seat to the pedal used to pinch the heck out of my legs. Ive seen some originals for sale around $1500...but Im definitely no appraiser.
