Hubley Toy Company produced many different models, sizes and compositions of motorcycles during the years
they were in production. Most of the motorcycles were based on Harley Davidson and Indian in the earlier
years and then expanding to the BMW and I am sure there are one or two more manufacturers I missed.
| The values stated in
this guide are to be used only as a guide. Values are not set to determine
prices as auction and dealer values vary greatly and are affected by
demand and condition. The author does not assume responsibility for any
losses that are the result of consulting this guide.
The Indian motorcycles still bring a higher premium than any of the other motorcycles but again this all
depends on condition. Having a nice Harley with a cop will still bring more than a rusty Indian of any kind.
Indian motorcycles will command 150 to 300 dollars more than the Harley Davidson cycles.
Example Harley Davidson side car motorcycle average to good condition $175 to $250 compared to a Indian
side car motorcycle in average to good condition $250 to $375. Of course add the police figures to these
motorcycles and the values will increase on both.

Most of Hubley motorcycles are easy to ID either by signature on tires or some part of the bodies.
Tires have Hubley MFG co and BALLOON w/size and CORD with some having only HUBLEY MFG co. The earlier tires
were white rubber with some metal tires also being made. Later tires were black and near the end of
production the tires were made with threads instead of being smooth.
Length ranges from 4 inches to one 12 inch 1930 transport 3 wheel model. Includes models that are 5, 6,
7, 8, 9, and ten inches with some measurements mixed in with fractions attached.
Decals were used on the tanks and rear sections of some models including the Indians and the larger Harley Davidsons.
The engines on these toys were v twins and usually straight inlines for the Indians.
The BMWs had the signature side heads sticking out. The engines in some of the earlier models were not very well
pronounced or defined.
Colors range from red, orange, blue, black, purple, silver, yellow, green in the metal era to green, red, blue
possibly yellow in the hard plastic era.
Finally the values stated in this guide represent used played with toys. Since mint in the box toys of this kind
are virtually nonexistent values are represented by the individual pieces.
