    I've had these for some time and I am not sure of their value nor do I know much about them. I can't find a brand name on any of them. All are in great condition. The more detailed ones have all working parts just like a real bike right down to the gears and breaks. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Haven't aimed my camera at the model, and maybe I'll get there, but I have the model of Francesco Moser's 1984 hour-record bike
    moser_enervit_299.jpg
    After breaking Merckx 3 records, and awarded the hour record for, 51.151 km,, Moser was disqualified 13 years later for being on a newfangled aero bicycle. (They decided poor Eddie was somehow cheated, and made new rules about equipment)
    I understand he makes a very nice wine today.

    I have two and can't find anything on the Web about where they are made or the age or even a company name. Rare! I would appreciate any information anyone has.

    Found a pristine one on ebay from Texas but it was lost in the mail so after 3 months of fighting with the seller and ebay I got my money back. Then one week later it was for sale again on ebay for 3 times the amount . Same bike.
    Very rare 1/5 scale, especially with writing on them. The hunt continues.....
