Vintage FAO Schwarz Battery operated weigted racing Motorcycle toy-Joseph Intl.
- Source: eBay
this is a Joseph International toy from 1975 sold thru FAO Schwarz - made in Hong kong . This very cool racing motorcycle , it has a weighted rear wheel, it charges up like a sizzler car on the orange charger base, as the speed increases you hear a loud whine and then the orange base is tilted slightly to release the racing cycle which takes off- depending on the surface it can go from a few feet to maybe 15 feet. The weight in the rear wheel assembly balances the bike and keeps it moving. Both the bike and the charger are all in exc condition, a very nice model . a really cool old toy that works verry well. Charger is 8" long and bike is about 7" long, on the bottom of the bikes exhaust are metal tips that sit on the charger to pickup the juice and chargeup- a very cool ideaShipping /handling for all 50 states : $ 9.90 by USPS priority (2) We combine shipping for any multiple auctions for up to 3 days, please let us know when you are done and ready for an invoice, we use USPS for most and heavier items - also, all items are available for pick up at our shop!
