The Radicon Bus was imported from Japan by the George Borgfeldt Corp., NYC, for whom I worked in sales (1956-1961). I have a mint condition Radicon Bus (never been used) in the original box which is only in fair condition.
Thanks for the info Jerry!

I have this radicom bus. Still in box everything works. Mint condition want to sell
I think the best place to sell and to get the most out of it is on eBay.
