I have an AMF Roadmaster ADULT tricycle. It has 24" wheels. It also has a coaster brake hub with three internal gears. This hub chains back to a differential on the rear axle. This differential is pretty unique as far as I've been able to determine. When I pedal the bike both rear wheels drive. If I stop the right wheel from turning then the left wheel will continue to drive. Same goes if I stop the left wheel from turning, the right wheel takes on the task of being the drive wheel.

I'm thinking of converting it to either an electric drive tike or chopping it and making a recumbent out of it. The question: Is this trike unique and valued enough that I should find and sell it to a collector and find something else to do my conversions? Or are they a dime a dozen and I shouldn't concern myself with destroying a chunk of AMF tricycle history?

I'd appreciate your opinion on this.

It's not really collectible, chop away! The differential rear end is a nice feature, many Schwinn trikes had this, also. Make sure that coaster brake is working well, and put a caliper brake on the front wheel if it doesn't have one already.

I have the set of mens and womens bamboo covered bikes but don't know anything about them. If anyone knows about how old they are, where they might be made or who the maker is, I'd be very happy.
Thanks!
