Polistil diecast material motorcycles and ATVs
Like other diecast metal models, Polistil diecast motorcycle and ATV models are made by blasting molten non-ferrous alloy metals, such as zinc, magnesium, copper, aluminium or pewter into casting moulds at a high pressure. While they are mostly made from metal, these Polistil diecast models also have details made from plastic, rubber and glass.
Many Polistil diecast motorcycle models have moving wheels, real rubber tyres, working front and rear suspension, movable handle bars and even sliding chains and moving gearbox cogs. Some of these diecast parts are fragile and these products should be handled with care. They are held in an upright position by discrete model stands.
