Auction #201 - Part II
Item numbers 1409 through 3152 in auction 201.
3.75” tall by 8.5” long cast-iron motorcycle with original rubber tires. Hubley as marked on tires. c. 1930s. Motorcycle comes with 4.5” tall cast-iron Popeye figure that stands on its own and has movable arms. Figure fits nicely on motorcycle and hands grasp handlebars. Raised “Patrol” text on motorcycle gas tank. Small stabilizer rubber wheels keep motorcycle upright for play/display. Motorcycle shows wear to gold accents and nickel-plated spoke wheels which have lt. oxidation. It appears as if one of the 2 white rubber tires on wooden hubs have been reinforced by gluing. These show typical hardening/cracking but stable. Original cycle paint remains about 85% complete. Popeye shows moderate and expected wear on inside of legs/pants and on chin, back of hat and rear end. About 70% remains. Still a Fine example of this scarce, dynamic toy. (K - $1000 to $2000)
