Can anyone id this tricycle? It has been painted over. It used to be a sky blue color. The tires are 24"x 1 3/8ths". My friend who gave it to me said it's at least 20 years old, but I think it's actually much older than that. I'm planning on restoring it so any info would be awesome. Thanks!

  • I've edited the question to include your images in your post. That way if the files vanish, then the question still makes sense in the future.

  • Also, those pebbles made it difficult to keep the photo's resolution while staying under the 2.0 Mbyte limit imposed by SE. Hence the somewhat brutal cropping.

    That saddle is absolutely enormous - do you think its original? Could be a handy hook to identify the bike.

  • The triple-plate fork crown is also a pretty old style. The tops of the fork legs should be sealed btw, it looks like rain can get in at the moment.

I found out that the trike is a 1975 Free Spirit.

  • Awesome finding - well done! Thank you for coming back and closing the loop.
