    old tricycles?

    Any one have any good sites for antique tricycles? My friend picked one up for free. It looks IMO old,, maybe 40's-mid 60's? Not sure though,, Ill get some pictures of it soon. the only markings on it were found on the tires. Tires were made by The Ohio Rubber co. Willoughby Ohio. Model tire was ORCO Air King. They are hollow hard rubber tires(not inflated, or solid).

    Hi. I realize this is an exceptionally old thread but, I have the EXACT SAME SITUATION ... I'm trying to restore my wife's Uncle's antique tricycle for my 2 year old son. Given it's age the tires are completely shot .. And I need to get new one wheels. Did anything ever come of your posting in which you were looking for advice on the Orco Air King wheels? If you have any information you can share with me on this topic, please let me know. Thanks. Jim.Richardson.622@gmail.com.

    Perform a google search for "semi-pneumatic trike tires".

    Thanks a lot ... I'm new to this so didn't realize Irides hadn't been active since 2007 ... Thanks form pointing that out ... I was just grasping at anything my google search pulled up.

    I think I may have found the tires I need online. Thanks again for posting a reply.

    Thanks a lot for posting a reply. I did a search for the semi-pneumatic and I think I may have found what I need. A little pricey, but isn't everything? My two year old son is going to have the slickest tricycle in the state of RI! Thanks again for posting a reply and offering some advice.
