Hi there. I am trying to find some info/photo on bikes that were around when I was a kid. They looked like motorcycles (dirt bikes) - had a plastic gas tank, fenders, spring shocks on the back and gas shocks on the front. Looked 'cool' at the time but musta weighed about 100lbs!
Any help is much appreciated!

Late 70s/Early 80s.

hmm...let me investigate. I am pretty good at toys I go to a forum regarding toys besides this one.

would this be a U.S toy or U.K toy? or both?

Probably US. I am in Canada so I assume it was a North American thing. Thanks!

ok...I know I know what bike it is but I do not know where to start. I found an AWESOME site you can go to. It's just like this one, but with bike experts..

It's www.bikeforums.net (http://www.bikeforums.net) good luck!

I had one - they had a twist grip that worked with a mechanism that was supposed to sound like a motorbike.

And yes they weighed a ton, but the seat was comfy and the suspension was bouncy. Should have stuck with the Strika though - the weight made it a swine to ride uphill!
