Hard To Find Arnold Mac700 Tin Windup Bmw Motorcycle First Version See Pictures For Sale

Hard To Find Arnold Mac700 Tin Windup Bmw Motorcycle First Version See Pictures

Another great one from my old tin toy collection is this very rare Arnold Mac 700 BMW tin windup motorcycle.Now you might ask, why rare, they show up on every week?

Please check the pictures, it will show you why. For larger pictures please click here: www.toyco.nl//arnoldmac-first.jpg

In this livery and condition they maybe show up once in a decade. It’s the very first version with a lot of differences with the “regular one”.

Although some sellers write it was made in the 1940’s, the very first ones came to the market in the very early 1950’s.

Underneath it's marked with Made in U.S. Zone Germany and it measures about 8 inches long.

Works great. Everything isoriginal except for thekey.The Märklin key provided with it works fine.

It does not appear to have ever been taken apart which is very important because it’s a very complicated little piece of high tech!

Very good ± C8 condition (60+ years old!) with minor paint/ play wear. How can we tell if it has been played with a lot or not? If you see one for sale please take a close look at the right side from the rear fender. Drivers leg scraped of the paint after it has been played with a lot. Another point you should look at are both sides of the front wheel. They show wear after it was used many times.

Last point you should look at, check if the gas cap and tail light are present and if all functions are ok.

The one here for sale makes all his moves and if you want to see one in action please give in: Arnold Mac at youtube.

Because I hate to wind up old toys to the very end I only did it 5 times to see it run. On a slippery surface it sometimes needs a little push.

For those who don’t know, these motorcycles have to be wound up anti clockwise!

There are 3 separate levers to make it work one lever on the left side in the tire stops the motorcycle while you are winding (anti clockwise!) - another lever on the right side at the bottom makes the motorcycle move forward, and the lever on the right side under the gas tank makes the rider mount and dismount.

The motorcycle goes in a circle, stopping to let the rider dismount and then remount and continues doing the same thing until the spring is exhausted.

Worldwide shipping will cost you $35, if winning buyer lives in the EU it’s less. Please take a look at my other sales for more rarities like this.
