Re: Ball catching games

Anyone know if the top set of forks in this machine are a 'standard' width for the Retreeva? They look quite wide, at least compared to the Payramid - but then I find the Payramid forks frustratingly narrow, even on the widest setting !!

Could well have been based upon the Lambretta MK LD first produced in 1951. The Mettoy models have more than a marked likeness to this scooter.
