Anthony Brothers Convert-O-Trike
Relatively unchanged for 65 years, the Convert-O-Tricycle is one sweet ride (and still available).
Made top to bottom out of cast aluminum, these tricycles are built to last. The rear deck can be removed quite easily and replaced with just one of the rear wheels, creating a tough little bike. Pedaling and balancing in bicycle mode is a bit tricky given that the pedals are directly attached to the front wheel (pedaling action will fight steering input and vice-versa).
Industrial engineer Tony Anthony (his parents really did name their son Anthony Anthony) developed his invention in the late 1940′s while working for the family refridgeration business.
Since the Convert-O-Trikes have remained the same for so long, it’s nearly impossible to judge the exact vintage by outward appearances. Based on the previous owner’s recollection, we happen to know that this particular trike is from the 1960′s.
