Auburn #520 Motorcycle Cop - Red SP

As a kid growing up in the '50s I remember having a couple of Auburn fire & emergency vehicles - not many, just a couple - and this was one of them! I want to say mine was green but can't remember exactly. In any case, it was fun. This toy had a nice heft, was a great fit for a small kids hands, and could take a lot of abuse. If anything they have one fatal flaw - the inability to readily stand upright. Those two semi-circular tabs sticking down just under the cops feet are often times unable to hold the motorcycle up because they have a tendency to bend inwards. Too many of these toys have those two tabs broken off and that doesn't help much either. The toy measures 3 7/8" (9.84cm) L x 1 1/8" (2.85cm) W x 2 5/8" (6.66cm) H. Enjoy! Opa Fritz and Oma Bettina
