Very Heavy Cast Aluminum Saddle Mates Minibike/Motorcycle

by Game Time, Inc.

Playground Equipment Grade Spring Ride-On Toy with Spring & Bracket INCLUDED

Outstanding Condition --- Silver & Black

The spring (photographed attached to the bike) has rust but is so heavy it will outlast you, me, and our grandchildren.

The bracket shown in a separate photograph is the one you will receive (but in the photo it is attached to a different spring.)

(or you can buy the new equivalent of this toy & accessories directly from Game Time, Inc. [go to gametime dot com] for only $863. plus about $125. more for the spring & bracket, plus shipping and handling.)

The Bike is 30 1/2" Long and 19 1/2" High from the bottom of the tires to the top of the handle bars. 9" wide at the handlebars and 14" wide at the foot pegs.

Mounted on the spring, it is 29 1/2" from the ground to the top of the handle bars.

Ready to be mounted. Included bracket will bolt the spring to a heavy steel or wooden base (which you provide.) It should then be set in concrete or on a securely planted 4"x 4" or larger post. As with any childrens' toys...use carefully and responsibly!!

THIS IS A HEAVY PIECE OF PROFESSIONAL PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT (I HESITATE TO CALL IT A TOY.) THIS PACKAGE WILL WEIGH CLOSE TO 80 POUNDS. YOU ARE WELCOME TO PICK IT UP IN PERSON. OR, IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE SPRING, IT WILL SHIP FOR LESS $$ AT ABOUT HALF THE WEIGHT. (You pay actual reduced cost if shipped without spring.) IF YOU ARE EAST OF THE MISSISSIPPI, SHIPPING WILL BE SOMEWHAT LESS EXPENSIVE. I'M NOT TRYING TO MAKE MONEY...JUST DON'T WANT TO LOSE MONEY.

I have a similar piece (a spring-mounted Locomotive) in my own back yard and it is the "Toddler Hit" of the neighborhood. When the toddlers are gone, it becomes popular yard sculpture!

Paypal Accepted, as per eBay rules. email me with any questions about payment.

Winning bidder pays flat UPS Ground shipping fee of $125. anyw in the lower 48 states. Elsew, at actual cost. Insurance, optional on this one, $1.70. Actual cost of Postage may be a bit higher or a bit lower, depending upon w in the USA you are located. I usually use a flat fee, adjusted for the size and weight item, to simplify the process for you and the math for me. If no postage fee is stated above, buyer will pay actual cost of postage, rounded up to the nearest dollar.

Now the ?FINE PRINT? ---not to scare you; just to keep things clear.

Any questions at all?? PLEASE ASK before bidding. Email me at auction's end with your name and address, and I'll try to get back to you promptly with payment instructions, and the cost of postage if it has not been specified as a flat rate in the listing. Paypal is accepted, as per eBay rules. Email me with any questions about payment. All payments must be in US FUNDS. and arrive within 7 days of end of auction. I try to describe items accurately, point out flaws I can find and about which I know enough to consider them flaws, and take representative photos. This is not a business, and I'm not an expert on most of the stuff I'm selling---just slowly unloading 35 years worth of obsessive collecting, while having a little fun and recouping a little of my money, and making my wife happy that this "junk" is leaving the house! So, again, ASK QUESTIONS IF YOU ARE IN DOUBT ABOUT ANYTHING AT ALL .

If no price is quoted for shipping, the cost will be the actual cost of Priority Mail postage, Parcel Post, or UPS from ZIP 08520, rounded up. Let me know if you want Insurance. I pack very well, but if you don't insure, I will not be responsible for loss or damage by the Postal Gorilla or by the Mad Max Man at UPS. I do not charge for packing, packing materials, or any of that nonsense (unless crating is involve...
