The Original 1/4 Scale RC nitro dirt bike from the 70's

This is the best radio control nitro motorcycle (dirt bike) you will ever see. It has a real working gas tank and 75% aluminium

I would say that's a matter of opion.Although it's the closes looking one to a real 1:1 dirtbike.But not the best.In fact back in the days they use to race them on a pave parking lot with ramps.The ramps where not very high either.And dirt was the last thing you wanted to run this bike on.Not unless you like chasing after things. But great exercise. But the radio shack ricky dirt bike seems to be the best right now.Mucho room for up grades and can convert to nitro.Plus you can actually play with it in the dirt. Plus take some pretty insane jumps.

Anyone have any pictures of the opposite side of the nitro version?

Just wondering what the other side of that gear box looked like...


Don't recall the Land Jump, but I do remember drooling of the Vanning! What was that, like '85-86' or so? Could only scrape up enough cash for a Tamiya Boomerang though - working weekends at the car wash...
