  1. Your rrRumblers look like new! Do you condition or clean them with something? The front tires and riders don’t look dried out like most of the ones in my collection. Is there something that can be done to preserve them?

    • No cleaning or conditioning has been used on my rrRumblers. That’s just the way I got them from eBay. I preserve mine by keeping them out of direct sunlight, but that’s about it.

    • The 2 wheel rrRumblers are reasonably fast. They can outrun some current cars. It was just chance that the Mean Mountain video has only 3 wheel rrRumblers.

      • Are those your childhood rrrumblers or collector purchases? I remember when rrrumblers came out. My folks sold all my stuff in the 1980’s when I went to college. Now I’m purchasing all my old stuff and more! LOL
