1960 elvish

This is a new section of the Online Bicycle Museum, featuring bicycles and tricycles for youngsters. It was inspired by our daughter Delphy learning to ride her red 1960 Elvish bicycle (above) in August, 2015. Delphy did her first vintage bicycle display with me at Amberley Museum on 13th September, 2015 (below)

GENE AUTRY HOPALONG CASSIDY TRICYCLES

I sell a lot of bicycles and tricycles each year. So this page shows the juvenile curiosities that are part of the Museum’s core collection rather than for sale. Not all of them have pages yet, but the ones that do may be accessed by clicking on their titles below.

1869 English Velocipede 88

Children’s pedal bicycles and tricycles evolved from the VELOCIPEDE, which became popular in 1869-1870. You can see an 1869 English Velocipede with 33″ front wheel in the top of the photo above, to compare with the large children’s tricycle on the right and the smaller boy’s velocipede bicycle in the foreground on the left.

COLIN’S FIRST TRICYCLE

colin trike 1963

As Danny the Dalmation was a puppy in this picture, I know it was taken in 1963. I don’t remember much about my tricycle though, except that it was rather robust – because one of my favourite games was to pedal toward the steps at the end of our garden at top speed and jump off just before it shot down the steps. As a result of that memory, it does not surprise me that there is often considerable work required when I buy children’s tricycles. Kids don’t think of them as collector’s items – that’s an adult perspective 🙂
