Joshua's Tricycle

I have been looking for a tricycle for Joshua, one with a push handle that would allow us to help him out on long walks.

Well, at the community garage sale I spotted the perfect tricycle. They told me I could have it for free because it didn't work. It was filthy little bike, left outside too long, apparently abandoned by a previous resident.

Back at home, Joshua and I examined the tricycle to see if we could fix it. After taking it apart and reassembling it, the bike finally worked. Next we had to clean it. This was Joshua's favorite part. We went to work with a bucket of water and some sponges.

Now Joshua has a great little tricycle that he loves to ride, though he is still learning how to work the petals correctly. And it only cost a little TLC.
