Hello cycling enthusiasts!

I was at my brother's house this weekend and he had this old playing piece laying around. I VERY vaguely remember the game (I was probably still in single digits at the time). One thing you can't see very well is that there is a magnet under the front wheel. I remember the pieces would move along and the cranks would spin, causing the legs to rise and fall as if the cyclist were pedaling the bike.

I gave a cursory search through the cycling-themed games, sorted by publication date (I'm guessing this game is from sometime between the late '60's and maybe early '80's) but came up empty. Anyone recognize the game that this piece comes from?? For what it's worth, that looks like a Bianchi bicycle, right?

Poor fella lost his arms somewhere along the way...

Try going through http://www.cyclingboardgames.net/

Anki's got a LOT of cycling games in his collection and there are plenty of pictures of the games. It might take a while but it'll be worth it to get the answer!
