for sale

If anyone would like to make an offer on this vintage farmer's tricycle, please email me at jenna@itsafarwalk.com. Its frame is solid, but needs basic updates to the chain and brakes. I was told it was from the late 1920s when I bought it.

I'd like to keep it, but with so many costs coming into winter, and so much still ahead of me to build, move, and pay for I need to sell off some luxury items such as this. The Gibson guitar and a Czech fiddle already sold on Ebay. I'd like to offer this to a local or reader who could come pick it up here at Cold Antler.

Good news. I found a home for Finn. He goes to live with a small family two hours away from here in October.

Send a picture to American Pickers, they love to buy old bikes and pay ridiculous prices.

Aw, too bad. I know you were so excited when you picked that stuff up.
You're right to simplify though. Makes everything easier. You'll find your share of treasures in due time.
I'm glad about Finn.
Best wishes!

Aww, too bad there wasn't a way to make it work with Finn at your place. But "you done good," and that's all that matters. :)

Phew! I'm happy it's going to work out!

p.s. If I had a reasonable way of getting that bike to L.A., I'd buy it in a second. Hmmmm.....

Great bike! I live too far away and am in a tight financial situation, but I think it is very cool. I hope you find someone who wants to take it home. It can be so hard to want certain things that you know you will use some day, but its great to be able to discern when you don't need them, too.

Yay Finn! Love the bike, btw, it would look great on my front lawn, but the distance is a little far for me, up here in Maine and all. ;)

I would LOVE to have a bike that too. I would be horribly made fun of by my husband... I have this thing about painting stuff I own pink & black to add that owned by a chick look. Wish you were closer...I would hide it out back and take leisurly rides down the country road as he slept in. :)

Fine tricycle. I like it. I don't why you want to sell it. It's color is fine. It has three wheels, so not worry about fall down.
