    Default Anybody know what this is???!!!

    I picked this old funky bike up awhile ago. Do you know what it is? A guy I know said it's a "Factory Trolley" by Worksman from the 40's or 50's. Thanks for your help,

    Default Paradise!

    Dude. Where'd you pick that baby up? It looks like a Paradise Pedicab with a carriage trailer, to boot - but seating one person ... wow. Those were made in I believe California in the 1970s, though don't quote me on that. George here in NYC operated a few of them a while back.

    I suppose it could be a Worksman, but I doubt it. Anyone else?

    yeah that makes sense. i do know that this bike was worked on venice beach for years. "Venicia Cab" is what was under the paint. Old signage, hand painted, don't see alot of that anymore. Anyone else wanna take a shot at identifying this thing??

    It looks like a Paradise Pedicab
    I think that is the kind of pedicab as seen in Magnum P.I. season 1 and that pedicab looked more like a Tpike.

    Nice find dude. We had somthing similar in T.O. back in the day except the cab took 3 across and both cab and trailer faced forward. This was back in the early to mid 90s.
