Take it for A Spin?

My boyfriends tricycle from his childhood.

It still works except for the blow outs for tires. Just waiting for a child to jump on and take off pedaling. 
All vehicles pre-1950’s have personality.  This trike I feel sorry for it because it looks so lonely and sad. All the kids spot it & drag it to the back door for mending so I kinda wonder ‘Do they have pity on the poor lonely tricycle like I do’?
The bike is cast iron or some other heavy duty metal that appears like it will out last our great grand kids. It doesn’t rust, the paint doesn’t chip, no fading and won’t come off either.  A childs riding toy more long lasting than a priceless human being. They don’t make em like they use to.

Or how about this CASE pedal tractor. It is wrought iron and weighs about a ton. The steering is terrible and if you went down a hill on this thing your guaranteed a broken leg when you tipped over and it landed on your legs.

You can see the front not very aerodynamically sound. Now the younger generations may understand how we broke body parts falling off our bikes.

This is much safer for younger generations.
