You could be the proud owner of this vintage Colson chain drive tricycle. This tricycle looks great and functions well. This is a taller tricycle so it would be good for an older boy or girl. This trike is looking for a new home and it could be yours.


This tricycle is in good original condition. The paint has scratches and chips, but could also clean up nicely. The chrome has rust and pitting. The seat has the leather torn at the nose and is worn but looks good. Nothing has been done to this tricycle and we would recommend a full tune up before riding. This tricycle is being sold as is, please see photographs for details.
