Classic trike reproduced
So you don't want to pay about $3,00 for an original 1936 Sky King tricycle? A virtually identical copy is available for about $275. Reproductions, made in Taiwan, have been produced in red, pink and black. The original was made by the Junior Toy Corporation in the United States.
Like the originals, new trikes are made of steel. The new spoked metal wheels have the correct 1930s-looking skinny black rubber tires. Special details like the winged trademark have genuine chrome plating. Accessories include a working light in the handlebar, reflectors and the famous hooded wheel covers.
