Aristo-Craft Boys Radio
Just think how cool you could be with this Aristo-Craft Boy’s Radio clipped on the handlebars of your bike! Its white plastic streamlined shape is complete with a brushed gold metal front panel, a top gold metal perforated grill area, and the ultra-cool rear fins! Underneath is a metal clip assembly to allow you to attach it to your bike. The two thumbwheel tuning controls are located on either side near the fins. Like most Boy’s Radios, it was made in Japan and is a two transistor set.
This example came complete with a colorful red, black and yellow box, earphone and hanger, and bike clip. The wording on the box says Aristo-Craft All Purpose Transistorized Radio, 2-Way Bike Radio. Detachable for outdoors/indoors. There are lots of graphics showing the radio in use on bikes, a boat, a tractor, at the dining room table with the family, and on a night stand next to a sleeping child. You could use it indoors or outdoors with exclusive instantaneous slip-off Aristomount. What a radio!
