Vintage Japan Battery Operated Atom Expert Motorcyclist Tin Motorcycle Toy:
Up for sale is a battery operated Atom Motorcycle made in Japan in the 1960's by Modern Toys. It is in very good condition with light play wear...some mild scuffs or small scratches here and there. There is a scuff on the helmet (see picture) and on each side of the back wheels there are old masking tape marks (see picture) from when it was taped to hold the battery door closed. I am not sure why the battery door wont stay closed, does not look like there is anything missing. I had put a rubber band around it to hold the batteries in when trying it out. This is in good working order. This motorcycle has great actions. When turned on the bike goes forward, stops, the rider dismounts to the one side and then gets back on. It then moves forward again and repeats the cycle. The front headlight also works. Everything works smoothly. The cycle measures 11 1/2" long.Comes from a smoke free home.Please feel free to ask any questions.Thank you for looking.

I have just found out that there is a small tin tab missing that swivels to keep the battery door closed. Also, where the old masking tape was located, seems to be just residue from that, not corrosion.
