Hubley Cast Iron Battery Op Motorcycle *SOLD*
Our luck is here, and we have a fresh orange motorcycle to offer. Orange is a tougher color on these and the gold swoop and red wood rims are a nice accent.
Just add in a AA battery and the lever near the driver’s seat flips on the light. Ours works and you can see it tested in one photo.
These castings were fragile around the handlebar and this is a clean unbroken original.

Specialty: Brand name: Lancaster Brand Iron Toys. Originally manufactured electric toy train equipment and parts. Purchased Safety Buggy Co. factory and moved to site in 1909. First manufactured cast-iron toys, horse-drawn wagons and fire engines, circus trains, and cap guns. Toy autos became the headliners in 1930s. By quickly converting to cheaper smaller toys during the Depression, they avoided financial woes experienced by many other toy companies. Iron shortages in WWII and commitments to fill war contracts did stop the toy division in 1942, until after the war.. The name was later changed to Gabriel Industries and still existed as a division of CBS as of 1978.
