1970s Battery Powered “Zoombike 51” Charge and Release Motorcycle Toy
A variant on the familiar “charge and release” toys of the era, this is a 1970s toy made by Jospeh International of Hong Kong, featuring a motorbike and rider, and battery-powered charging unit to generate some revs for the bike’s motor. The motorbike is engaged with the charging unit via its metal exhaists and, once held in place, the motor is “revved up” using the left handlebar on the charger and released (after approximately 15 seconds of charging) using the right handlebar. It’s a fun item and works as it should – on a smooth surface and with enough revs, the motorbike will zoom off with some speed.
An unusual item, complete with original – if somewhat battered and repaired – box.
