Default help with a vintage kyosho?

I thought you bike guys could help me with this one.
I bought this bike at a very good price (cheaper than I would spend on a bottle of wine) but can't find anything about it on Kyosho's site or any site . can you help?
the rider is plastic body with a cloth! overall with a zip? a late 70's style fairing? and the only reason I said Kyosho is because of the tyres.
Pictures!




As you can see see needs some work but I'm sorted for motor, esc, battery and 2.4 system just want some info on the old girl
Thanks
Scott

Default What a bike!!!!

Wow,man,this bike is pure r/c history!
It was the first mass production bike al late 70's ,needed skills to drive it...If it falls you got to pick it up...
Very rare model,keep it for ever!
make spare parts at a local machinery shop or similar...

What size is that motor in them? would be nice to find a scale engine to fill the gap in the frame.

Oh did you bid too.. oops, i got a Tamiya Tank instead

you are leaving this one rusty though right? I love how it looks like a barn find, i also love the way the alloy wheels are oxidising. I say run it as it is
