Toy Moped?

So I was walking down Queen St. on my way home from work this evening, and I noticed this in the window of Commute Home. I'm guessing it's an old childs toy? It's only about two feet tall. Or some crazy old moped? Haha, who knows? Although it does seem to have some parts that would make it go. I'm not sure. The store was closed so I couldn't go in and look at it.

Anyway, I figured some of you guys would get a kick out of it. It's neat.

    Somebody will want some serious change for that wee beasty, probably could be motorized. Think you are right it is a toy like the old peddle cars etc. of the fifties.

    Well, I have been sucked in again. I went down on Sunday to see this little marvel. I spoke to the sales dude, who told me it was a real bike, but not functioning at the moment. ( KEY WORD = bike ) My guess is that it was used as part of a kiddie ride in a circus or fair, you know, the ones which are all attached to a merry go round. The gas tank is not really, it is just a shell which would not hold gas. You can take your hand, and shove it right up from the bottom inside to the top of the "cylinder head", It is all hollow. The wires you can see hanging out, are just that, Wires hanging out, but unconnected to anything. It dooes look extreamly cool however, and I'm sure from some collectorts popint of view, it is a steal for $550.00.

    Its got two brackets comeing off to the side on the bottom of it. That makes it look like it hookwed into a ride for sure. The only problem is that the sprocket on the back looks real, but then again maybe it was cheeper to use a real one.
