Fancy a ride in a ZY Toys 1/6 scale WWII U.S. Army Military Motorcycle? Harley-Davidson?

Back in the early 1940s, the US Army asked Harley-Davidson to design a next-generation military motorcycle although the company was already producing the WLA, based on its traditional 45-degree V-twin engine. The army ordered a test batch of 1,000 XAs from Harley-Davidson. At the same time, the military also asked Indian to make a 750cc shaft-drive twin, and it came up with a 90-degree V-twin design. The idea was to put both new machines through their paces, and award a lucrative military contract to the winner.

Eventually, the army finished its testing, and decided that neither new bike would be built. Instead, they bought several thousand more Harley WLAs.

This is the soon-to-be-released (ETA February 2014) 1/6 scale WWII U.S. Army Military Motorcycle by ZY Toys made for 12-inch figures. It is quite nicely detailed with a number of moving parts. Great for pairing with your Hot Toys Captain America: First Avenger collectible figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE) or for use with World War II U.S. Army 12-inch figures.
