    You wouldn't want to be the delivery boy who had to use this mode of transport. See if you can find the brakes.

    These are great pics!

    A friend of mines father collects Davco milk trucks. He has 17, all in various condition. Way cool.
     
  3. It's a coaster brake rear hub. You back-pedal to activate.

    1938 Reo Tractor, custom built for Dr. Hubert Eaton of the Forest Lawn Memorial Parks to tow the Curtiss Aerostar fifth-wheel trailer behind it. Retired in 1991, it's currently on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

    Well, youngster, on a "real" American bike, you pedal backwards to brake.

    Streamlined trailer of the Enna Jettick shoe company made by the same Curtis as some others in this thread. They also had their own airship.

    Not exactly a delivery vehicle, but I will let you slide, since it gets better looking every time I see it!
