COMPANY HISTORY:

American made Dirt King Tricycles was formed in 1983 under the company name Midwest Manufacturing & Contracting by inventor and maker Jim Funk. Jim Funk has gone on to invent other high quality toys and is responsible for the back scooter foot-brake you find on various toy scooters today.

In 1998, Dirt King created the “Dually” or “Heavy-Duty” Tricycle and the “Adult Dually” or “Adult Trike/Big Kids” tricycle. Later, Jim created and manufactured the “Spin About” and “ActiLift” products. In 2009, Jim Funk and Bob Funk sold their company to Senne Company and renamed the company to MCM Manufacturing, Inc. Jim and Bob Funk currently are shareholders and actively work in similar positions under new MCM Manufacturing, Inc. ownership.

Through the years, the Dirt King tricycle has been labeled under different brand names used by well-known corporations (all are now overseas with different design and parts) and presently MCM Manufacturing, Inc. builds the tricycle under their own brand name Dirt King. Dirt Trax is the only other current brand that you can find this tricycle craftsmanship under. With over 30,000 trikes sold and not one unsatisfied customer, Dirt King has been quoted as “The World’s Best Tricycle” and continues to offer their lifetime warranty to happy customers and will remain American made.
