Has wear from age including paint wear, paint fade, corrosion, dust dirt, cracked rubber on training wheels. Both Popeye and the bike have been tested with magnets and they do stick. Appears the rivets on Popeye and his bike have been repeened. The toy may have had paint touch ups over the years, but I can't find any glaringly obvious patches under black light, so it may have been very early in its life.
I also think there is a thin layer of clear coat sprayed on it, its hard to tell visually but the surface is slightly tacky. Still, this is a very hard to find original Hubley Popeye motorcycle in pretty good condition for its age. Please look over all photos for condition and feel free to ask for more.
