Description

This is a superb, original Shinsei Dust Runner 3 Wheeled R/C Trike from 1982. There’s not a flaw on the bike and it has never seen dirt. But it has been run a few times on carpet. So I have described it as near mint in box. It’s basically indistinguishable from brand new. Really quite perfect.

It comes complete with transmitter, manual and original box. The original box has a tear on the front, but otherwise it presents quite well.

Please see the photos to understand the condition. Feel free to contact me to find out more.

History

The Shinsei Dust Runner is probably on a par with the Shinsei Mountain Man as the most famous R/C toy ever released by the Japanese Shinsei company – which existed only until the early 1990s.

Released in about 1982, these versatile little R/C 3-Wheelers were typical of Shinsei’s high quality R/C toys – Digital Proportional, 2-Speed, with huge high-quality balloon rubber tyres, and capable of doing wheelies. The Dust Runner is a perfect scale model of Honda’s ATC 250R from the 1980s – itself a legacy of years gone by, since these types of 3-wheeled off-road vehicles were eventually banned from sale. Today, the Dust Runner remains popular with both vintage R/C collectors and fans of the real vehicle.
