Catalogue Notes by Mick Mock, PO Box 330 Manly NSW Australia 2095.
Thanks to Mick Mock.
Basic design suggests an early model, almost a foam copy of a Paipo.
Riding position probably prone, as suggested by theTwin fins.
Unusually for this period, the fins are definitely tipped out towards the rails..
