Manufacturer
Manufacturer: AMF   Site of Operations: New York - Office
Founder:     Contact Information:  
Parent Company AMF   Website:  
Tricycles Made Since: 1951   Notable Lines/Models: Junior, Rocket Trike, Wee Rider
Still in Business: Yes    

AMF is probably most well known for making bowling pins and bowling supplies, and for owning Harley-Davidson Motorcycles for a time.      

Early in 1951, Junior Toy was sold to the American Machine and Foundry Company (AMF) in New York City.  In this deal Junior Toy Company merged with Cleveland Welding Company (producers of Roadmaster bicycles) under the umbrella of AMF. After a few years, the plant in Hammond was closed down completely. 

AMF continued to produce tricycles with the Junior name.  Then tricycles with Junior AMF, and later simply as AMF tricycles.

In 1993 Roadmaster acquired Flexible Flyer and in 1997 Roadmaster was bought out by Brunswick, and became part of the Brunswick Outdoor Recreation Group. Roadmaster continues to produce tricycles today.
