You did a frame off restoration on Wonder Woman's invisible jet?
Nice work, it looks factory original from what I can see or can't see.

Hmm let's try this again

------ Follow up post added December 25th, 2014 02:18 PM ------

So, I was helping Clay get some tractor parts when I came across a Lee Engineering tricycle. There is no history that I can find on it, all I know is the gentleman that gave it to me said it has been in his family for 100 years. When my son climbed on it, he told me if I restore it I could have it. I thought awesome!!! Until I started looking up parts for the damn thing well I didn't use period correct parts, just what I could find at the the local TCS. It took me and two others two eight hour days and roughly $140 worth of material to get this bad boy back together. The best part is that my son loves it, only thing left todo is send a pic to the gentleman that gave it to me. I had to recreate the front pedal wheel all together bc it was toast, the pedals I made out of leopard wood, and the seat was recovered with some of me welding hid. My guys and I had a blast knocking it out, it was a nice change of pace.

Not what I was expecting by the title, but fun to see none the less! Great job. Risen from rust! Your boy looks very happy! What is he, about a year, year and a half? Looks a lot like my son. They are so full of adventure. Great work again. Definitely not a "leave it in the front yard" trike!

That is a great Christmas gift. Something wrought by your own hands that will last forever and his son can have some day. Nicely done.

Great build!

I volunteer at a non-profit bike shop when I can and see a fair bit of vintage bikes. I want to grab an old town/cruiser and restore it for my daughter. The steel and other materials and designs they used back then are so cool.

Looks like that trike is ready to last another 50+ years!

Very nice! How old is the kiddo? I just survived a three hour car ride from Danville to CLT and then flew 3 hours to DFW with my 16 month old. Good times!
