Nice scooter. Looks like maybe a Radio Flyer or knock off.

If you can't find the original brand I suggest something along the lines of Wheel-Colt, Wheel-Scoot, Wheel-Pony, etc.

Maybe a "SuperJet" ?

I don't think it's as old as they say in this ad though.  I would say more like 50s - 60s.  I had one just like it when I was a wee tyke.

That is a very nice sidewalk cruiser you have there. I have a few of my own. Getting this one ready to take to a car show to see if I can sell it. The engine is a cooler, holds a 12 pack of your favorite canned beverage. Lift the valve covers to access them. Kids have out grown it I used to pull them around in it at local car shows. If I sold it it would make room for another Wheel Horse !

Yup...

 

If I do a resto, it'll be $3 for the 1/2 used can of Regal Red left over from the C 85 project... Cut off three 0's from the price, and no California taxes!!! :handgestures-thumbupright:

I had one just like that waaay back when I was a kid - early '60s.   Was a hand me down from my sisters.  That dates it to the mid 50's.

Out for bike ride tonight with the Mrs. 

 

Had to stop and pick this one up… :hide:

 

No identified markings but it is old… any guesses? Neighbor said he got it from an antique store about 10 years ago for his kids…

 

Even the right color!!! :handgestures-thumbupright:
