This particular Space Patrol Cycle includes the original hard rubber spaceman driver – he’s a bit cracked but he’s a rare find in any condition. He’s missing his clear plastic dome helmet – but seems to be doing fine without it.
On 30 May 2015 Morphy Auctions had this little beauty up for bids. Its estimated value was between $12,000 – $18,000. When all was said and done the final winning bid (with buyer’s premium) came to the lovely amount of $17,500.
A person could have purchased a human sized cycle for that chunk-o’-change. But then it wouldn’t be a 1950s Bandai Space Patrol Super Cycle now would it.
