This is a VERY tough one, especially based on the fact that there is little paint/finish variation between the component assemblies -- forks and frame look the same, basic engine parts look the same with another finish, cylinders look the same as each other. But the tires are perfect, so I'll go with real.

I say real. If it turns out to be a model, it has hand laced real wire wheels. Those are not injection molded or pe.

I'm guessing 1/2 or 3/4 scale replica, so model.

Model. Large scale. It has the same feeling of that derivable midget cars you posted some time ago Harry. The engine looks too "plain" in color as if someone just painted the entire part silver, what I really doubt would be done to this kind of antique motorcycle. The tires do look a lot like some old bicycle tires. I had a bicycle with tires just like the one in the front when I was a kid.
