ZY Toys WWII Harley Davidson WLA ... ...

This item is by ZY Toys and its publicity pictures has Captain America from the The First Avenger (2011) version sat on it. That's the reason why I got this.

The packaging makes the item looks cheap but it's price point is above $150. However, I would consider it not really expensive especially when you have the actual item on hand.




Still on the topic of the packaging, it's interesting that the camo pattern on the box is the pixelated version for a WWII vehicle. Anyway, the item comes nicely packed in a very sturdy foam packaging when you slide out the inner packaging.



Some assembly required and you'll figure out what goes where. The rifle holster and the saddle bags are faux leather and are well made.


The bike already looks very good as it is and the details here are amazing!



ZY made considerable efforts to make this as realistic as possible with many movable parts like the gear shift here.




Again to highlight the details here are the cables, weathering and use of materials with the appropriate paint application. The foot rest came taped and it was to avoid licensing issue as it reads 'Arley Avidson' beneath it.


The completed bike and the following pictures features more of the item.



The pictures above and below is to highlight the rear brake system with the pedal and piston being movable.



I'm so used to having electrical gimmicks on my 1/6 toys that I was hoping ZY to make the headlights, speed dial and taillights light up. However, I think the choice of colors and applications made them looked authentic enough.





As mentioned above, this is a Arley Avidson motorcycle.





This item is made complete with Captain America from WWII standing beside it. Anyway, this bike isn't the movie accurate version but it bears certain resemblance to the pimped up ride in the movie.














This vintage item really is a work of art and it really needs time to appreciate its beauty.
