    Two Trikes - before and after.

    The first - Thistle Trike. Not sure of the exact age, but it was originally red, and I painted it blue for a nephew. I traced and kept the original stencilling of "Thistle" across the metal seat. I added a middle brace with hook, and a sweet bell. Unable to find a missing foot pedal, I made two wooden ones. late 40's? 1950's? 1960's?

    The second trike was not marked, but I believe it to be a TriAng. I kept all the original parts and just brought it back to original. All the tyres were in great shape and I was able to repair and keep the wood seat. Again, not sure of the age - but the front crank has bearings and it was in better condition than the metal one. 1940's?

    Both were owned by the same owner / found in Canada - Winnipeg

    Can anyone confirm the year? - or if the wood trike had paint on the seat?

      The second trike looks identical to one I just picked up for my three year old. The one I have is dark blue frame with white hand grips and white wheels. The seat still has the original paint that says EATON deluxe TRULINE. It makes sense that you got it from someone in Winnipeg since they had the second largest and second oldest Eatons department store. Not sure of the age but I hope this helps even if it's 7 years after your post!
