Toy Motorcycles

Here are a selection of the small toy motorcycles I had when I was just a bairn…. The first three are from the incomparable Britains collection.

The BMW and Agusta were both well played itesm; one I always wanted though was the Greeves Scrambler, below, currently going consistently on Ebay for £30-40.

These two Polistil models were my favorite bikes of the time: Kawasaki and Norton Commando.

Triumph Trophy 250cc TR25W 1971

This small single cylinder Triumph I picked up when first arriving in the ‘States suited me well, good for messing around in the city getting comfortable with american roads. Its diminutive nature was ideal for getting my motorcycle license too.
Though for my 6′-5″ frame was a tad cramped!
