A "Minimoto" 49cc miniature motorcycle,
Sold for £187 (US$ 236) inc. premium

Lot Details
A "Minimoto" 49cc miniature motorcycle,
Minimoto of 'pocket bike' racing has become increasingly popular since its inception in the late 1980s. Although these miniature Grand Prix-styled motorcycles may look like toys, they nevertheless have proved to be the ideal training ground for many of today's star riders, the incomparable Valentino Rossi among them. China is the major supplier of such machines, which perhaps explains why this Yamaha YZF-inspired example carries decals saying 'Marlboro' on one side and 'Marldoro' on the other! Originally acquired new in 2005 the machine has not been used; indeed it only came out of its box for the photographs. There are no documents with this Lot.

Footnotes

  • Prospective purchasers should be aware that it is illegal to ride a Minimoto on UK roads.
