Lookie here lookie here. I have found an old old Jerald sulky. No quick hitch on here. I'm tryin to figure out what to do with it...sell it or just keep it and maybe teach my ridin horse somethin new. But if i chose to sell it whats it worth? Pics below. Complete with cover.









If anyone has any idea what its worth i'd appreciate to know.

Museum or lawn ornament sounds appropriate to me, Tannor.   If I had it, frankly I don't know if I'd actually use it as it was intended anymore.
Now, if anybody digs up an old Single Shaft Sulky, I still have a good friend that might be interested in buying it 'just to have it' in his collection.

Okay, Dan, don't leave me/is in such suspense!   What Cracker Barrel location are you referencing?

"Mr. Devereux (Harry) had a great collection of historic sulkies, wagons and carts. When he passed on in 1932 the collection was packed and sent to a museum. No one seemed to know which place received these famous vehicles, Knowing that some famous sulkies were at the Ford Museum, a search was made for them during a visit a year ago."

 I've made some casual inquires to the Dearborn, Michigan's, Greenfield Village & Henry Frod Museum were there is a collection of older bikes (high-wheel's among them), however I've yet to confirm whether the same bike exists that the article discusses.
 It's been more than 40-years since I've visited the Museum/Village.  I may make it there yet!

That's what I was going to recomend.  Of course as long as you have an old harness to go along with it, you can be a hit at your local parades.

It would be a little work but I would refinish it. I have seen them hanging from the ceilings of actually a few houses with high ceilings.

Now that would be neat!  Even if you have a basement game room with enough space to hang it on the wall.  Surround it with win pictures.

We usually make the CB's the rest stop of choice when we travel.
I think it was the CB in Lafayette, IN but at my age it could have been in Georgia,.....or Tennessee,.....or Alabama,......or Kentucky..or...or...or!!  Roll Eyes Undecided
