      a "three foot" motobike

      i bought some "leftover" toys from an importer.

      (very cheap, just what my customers want and need)

       

      at pricing the toys for selling, i found one broken. two wheels missing.  U$1.50 gone by the wind...

       

      on second look that truck had a load. a bike with a sidecar.  well, chinese... so it seems to be a generic model, nothing i could identify.

      a little cleaning up the grates, some paint, and i will have a nice background bike.

      as the comparison with the two figures shows, it must be somewhere around 1:29 or 1:32.

       

      the moral of the story: even some of the "el cheapo" chinese toys are usable for modeling.

      no, i didn't see your pic! because i didn't want to!

      i've got so many unfinished projects, i don't want to make a tricicle.

       

      what make of bike might this have been originally?

      looks like it is from the early 50ies or even older.

      John, I agree, what's one more project? I will never finish all the ones I already have, so why not one more I won't finish?

      Korm, I refuse to grow up! Grown ups are grumpy people who are always worried about things that never happen. And, if those things do happen, they aren't as bad as they thought it was going to be.
