Q: Hello…I have come across a piece that I have no idea what it is!It’s about 4 inches, marked TRIKE HITCH and Pat Pend. Any ideas?
A: There have been numerous designs of tricycle hitches made for pulling little trailers and carts. Yours appears to be made for pulling a small wagon. The size that you stated makes it see like it would be too small for a normal sized wagon, such as a Radio Flyer.
The Tricycle of the Week for March 28, 2010 is this 1950’s Hettrick American tricycle with wagon combo. It was found on eBay and was offered by sale by eBay seller, jhdmatsfan.
The final selling price of the tricycle was $62.00.

The latest tricycle restoration to be submitted to TricycleFetish.com is the cool early 1950’s Garton Delivery Cycle pictured at the left. Normally we’d say something about the restoration, but the restoration was done by the author of the Racycle Blog and he has a nice detailed write up with lots of pictures of the process.
