Buy It For Life: The Converto Bike

Converto Bike

In our “Buy It For Life” posts we feature products that are built to last a lifetime. We also give preference to products that are very durable, are warrantied for life, and are made in the U.S.

Originally designed by Tony Anthony in 1949, the Converto Bike is a solid aluminum tricycle that converts into a bicycle in minutes. When your child is ready for a two wheeler, simply remove rear axle and place one of the wheels into the rear fork. The bike has very sturdy steel and cast-aluminum alloy frame that prevents rust.

The inventor of this bike, Tony Anthony, worked as a engineer for Northrop, and used his knowledge of aluminum to fabricate the cast aluminum tricycles. The Converto Bike is now made by Angeles company in Missouri.

It comes with a five year guarantee against defect parts, and a lifetime guarantee on the fork and frame.

You can buy the Converto Bike on Amazon for about $288.

    Have a Convert-O bike/tricycle, it is in very good condition. There is not date or stamp on it anywhere that I can see, have pictures of it. What is it worth? Thank you.

    I don’t think your history is exactly correct. I still have a “Tri-Bike” that my parents bought me in 1947. It’s in pretty good condition for the wear it has seen. It’s on the third generation of service.
