I've been planning to buy this for the past 6 months, everytime I go to my Spare parts shop, I oogle over this but never dared to purchase it as I found the pricing to be exhobirant. I think this was priced at Rs.745/- and I would not dare spending that much for this. BTW, how much did you buy it for. If it's cheaper than that, then I would also book one for myself. Waiting for your PM.
BTW, looks like most of the parts are in place with exact proportion. What's the make of this Pulsar?

Log on to New cars | New Bikes | Car on road price | Used autos | automobile in India | Vicky.in and go to the "Shopping" link. After that, select "Bike scale models" from the list appearing to your right. The model will appear there with all the required details.

Would you believe it if I told you: Rs 249/- (yes its Two hundred & forty nine only).
Today I bought a cyclist who looks more or less like Lance Armstrong. The detailing is very clean, atleast for the price I paid: Rs 150/-.

Price seems good. Even i bought mine for some 200 odd bucks back in 2006 or 07. that to with a 10% discount so to be precise 180Rs. At that time also picked few miniature models of MGA & MGBs, for 130Rs.
Hey any pic of the Lance lookalike.

PS: Same here.

Here you go. The powder on the front wheel is talcum to save rubber. Rear wheel has grooves to push the bike. Its fun to see it moving. Will make a video sometime & send you the link.

I am making some minor modifications on my Ferrari California. I may go in for a full Novitec Rosso conversion, but not now... Below are the three options.

First two are with the original wheels, and the third is with the Superamerica rims.

Looking good.
May I ask you for the source? Really a dirt cheap price for this detailing.

BTW what scale?

cyrus IMHO the superamerica rims looks best. They match with the other chrome parts on the California. Do keep updating on the status of the mods.
