CYCLING FIGURINES

 

This page is under construction.

 

There are lots of cyling figurines around, they were pretty popular in France, in Spain... I guess they might have been popular in many other places as well. I like them, but I don't exactly collect them.  Here are, nevertheless, some of the ones I have at home. By the way, those shown in the main page are plastic Spanish figurines made in Barcelona by Mariano Sotorres during the 1960s.

Small (3 cms) English turn-of-the century tin riders, which surely belonged to a board game. If you know what game they belong to, please drop me a line (I have a clue, but I am not really sure...). Sadly, one of the riders is beheaded.

 

 

 

 

Small (3cms) Italian metal riders. Notice the "italian" base of the riders. I have not seen this tipe of base in any other country, but there is at least one italian game which features riders with this (very unstable, by the way) type of base.
