I have had this fully outfitted MAM biker for some time, but he never had a bike. (He has moulded on clothing on his upper torso, and the helmet isn't removable, so he can't be much else other than a biker. The inside transparent visor on his helmet flicks up and down at the press of a button.)
Now decent 1/6 scale motorcycles can and do run into a great deal of money. I was never really going to do many biking scenes so I wasn't about to fork out a lot of cash for a serious model.
Then I found THIS bike in the charity shop yesterday for $2.00!
Yes, I know it's really a little bit small but he sits on it and it kind of looks okay!
It's actually a little larger than it looks in the photo due to the angle.
The bike itself has batteries and the lights turn on, it makes "bike" revving noises and runs forward and then does a "wheelie". My rider stays put during all this too!
Anyway, I was quite pleased with the find and thought I'd whip up a quick shot to show the result.
So here's my dirt biker, ....perhaps in the Dakar Rally through the desert?
