- Sep 7, 2007Hello Guys... thanks to Kiwi for priming the pimp so to speak. I
took the summer off and enjoyed breaking down. The BMW...840 miles
from home...The Triumph (1965 650 Tiger)is nice enough to stop
within the city limits....several times. I guess they also exported
electrical gremlins with the machine...makes me wonder how a
Spitfire stayed in the air.
I attended the only toy show we still have and also discovered
very little. I saw one vender "age" one of the new reproductions.
Someone (Hong Kong ?) is putting out a small 4 inch tin version of
the Paya sidecar rig with the horn blower. One version has the "HP"
on the fuel tank and the other doesn't, both brown in color..there
is a 3rd version.. same size, 4 inch.. in the standard color of the
copied version, orange/green.
I'm not a die cast guy but several have come out. One is the early
650 Yamaha 650.. xs1 (1970 green) and xs1b (1971 yellow) ....I got
the green unit, cheap but postage was a bit
stiff.....also "1xomuseum" came out with several nice
items....1/24th scale... I got the 450 Ducati, yellow. They offer
several other models.
? I'm looking for a " PIG " .... a series of 4 tin cycles was
made.. about 4 inches long... " POLICE " ... with rubber heads.. a
Monkey, Rabbit and a Bear. Anyone got a spare " PIG " version.
Thanks, Mike MN
