Hi from Alaska

Hello from Alaska, I am a great-grandma who enjoys pedaling my three wheeler around town. I got this great vehicle at a yard sale and cannot find out much about it. It has a small wicker basket attached to the handlebars and a large one between the back wheels. All of the metal bars are wound with rattan. The fenders and chain guard are bamboo. The hand grips are wood. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I can't figure out how to send a photo. Thanks, Grandma Ginny

Welcome granny.
Read this for help with posting pictures. --> https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...ictures-How-to!

When you get a chance stop by the 50+ forum and say hello to the "old folks". I'm one of them. I'm 66 and there are several others here who are older than me.

Yes, I am really a Virginia, but almost no-one calls me that. When I was in the first grade, a very long time ago; the teacher insisted on calling everyone by their full name. Now I am called Grandma Ginny by nearly everyone in town. In fact some people don't even know my last name.

I think I finally got a photo of my trike on here. She's a beauty! The weather has limited my riding this summer, but I won't give up.

Well, welcome again Virginia!

Everyone calls my wife Ginny except me. I prefer Virginia.
