Arnold Mac 700 Motorcycle

Rare red version of the Arnold motorcycle "MAC" 700, made in Germany c.1950, tin, windup & functions ok, colour slightly faded, otherwise excellent.

When wound it has a clever progressive action. At first Mac remains seated on the bike with the engine running, then he gets off and stands beside it. He then remounts and rides in a circle, stops to dismount, stands beside the bike before getting back on and riding off again.

Antique and vintage toy motorcycles are hard to come by in good condition. This is an excellent example in a rare colour variation offered with a reproduction box and key.
