JML Delivery Motorcycle Tin Toy Wind Up Scarce 1930s Pre-War Triporteur

$1,100.00

I am pleased to offer this Very Scare 1930s Pre-War JML France Triporteur Tin Windup Motorcycle Toy!

This is a very large scale toy, and is just amazing for displaying in any collection. The toy has a very unique combination in the design of the body.  The rear half of the toy uses the JML Motorcycle “Tag-0158” with the front wheel/fork assembly replaced by a boxy front end of a Jeep.

The toy is designed as a Delivery Trike, as the front end hood can be opened to reveal a storage compartment.  The front end of each wheel well has a large headlight housing.

The rear motorcycle half is brightly lithographed and very detailed, as well as each of the three large tires.

The motorcycle has a fixed wind up mechanism on the rear-left side of the toy. It remains very strong, and when wound fully will propel the toy forwards at a fast speed.  The front end of the toy can be adjusted for direction.    

Measurements:
