Yeah, Ares, I know, but it is still faster than a Harley.  Comfounded auto spell,  I have it corrected now.  You just caught it before I had it done.  The set is going to my House.

I finally ordered 2 sets on line with the buy 1 get 50% off and have them shipped directly to the recipient one to my hose and one to the grandson, the third will be purchased later at a store with better service.

Having it shipped directly to your hose wont wash off the blue.

Disregard my previous post I did intentionally to get a laugh out of you guys.

So I went to the store today to see if they had any of the Raiders left - the lady said "No, but we have some Harleys" I told her " Nevermind I was looking for something that wouldn't break before I could get it wrapped".

Toys R Us has a set of 3 die cast motorcycles that includes the 2011 Raider S in Glacier Blue.  Best bike in the best year and best color! 

http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12776851

Set also includes BMW R1200C which I believe is BMW's only true cruiser which appeared in a James Bond movie, and Kawasaki KDX220 which is a dirt bike I don't know much about.  You can buy in the store or online at the same price.

I think having the die cast model on my desk may help me get through the winter.

Too bad its blue and not black.  If anyone sees a black one tell me.
THe bmw R1200c isn't even produced anymore.  Fun bike but had a scary lurch to it on hard acceleration.

BMW's true cruisers would be the R/75 and R65 series that were pre 70's.  Some of the WWII to late 60's models would fit the bill as well much better than the R1200 C

Just paint it.  It's small.

I would say worse case, use some of your wife's nail polish, but then I remembered most wive's don't have black nail polish.

Basco- How much was the single Raider?

Less than $5. It was more about not having to buy the other 2...
There is no replacement for displacement

Thanks so much for finding this.  I went to the ToysRUs on the way home and found two of the multi-pack sets and didn't see any of the single Raiders. So I checked the whole aisle and then found the single ones. There were multiples of both of the other bikes in the set along with some others, but no Raiders. Then I found two more behind some other items.  First one... Not a Raider. Last one... RAIDER!!! WOO HOO!!!

Cost me a whopping $3.99 + tax.

With shipping to Utah and Alaska I spent less than $28 making it less than $5 a piece for all 6.  Or $14 each for the 2 real bikes. ;D

It looks pretty good except for the front axle area on the forks...a big, ugly nut-hole.

I took the grandson and went to the local Toys R Us and they did not have any and the store help would not last one day at my place of work.  so,I may order 3 from the ToysRUs online store or wait until  get back home.

Crappy service. Shocking

In all fairness, going in to a toy store at Christmas time, what would you expect but total chaos?

I would expect that the store would prepare for what they know far in advance what will be coming.  The Toys-R-Us in Yuma did just that and I had no problems getting all the help I wanted today...  ;D

Bill- Did your ToysRUs have them in stock?  I'm planning to call them as soon as they open. I have two that are pretty close to my work.  One of them I pass twice a day.

Yes, they did have them, not many but they were there and now they have one set less...  ;D

Anyone know where I can get 1:16 scale Cobra Swepts, Linbars and Baron's bars?

If this had been a larger, more accurate version, I would've actually considered customizing it to closer match my Raider.

How good are you at metal smithing?  I am thinking paper clips and electrical wiring ferrules.....

Aresx, good idea about the nail polish.  I can do that.

TO make pipes could you just get some aluminum tubing from ace and a brake line bender?
