Arnold Mac 700 Motorcycle

Superb example of the rare red version of the tin Arnold motorcycle "MAC" 700, made in Germany c.1950.,  This toy winds and functions perfectly, its colours are bright, with only very minor paint damage.

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.
