Yea, I remember those. I had the stunt cycle that you cranked the base until it took off and popped a wheelie and a bunch of other stuff. That thing was cool.

yep, that's it. That thing lasted forever too. I think mama finaly gave it to my nephews and they finished tearing it up. I played with that thing for hours trying to get it to jump a gully that had washed out along side the driveway.

That toy was responsible for many of my mom's broken vases and knick-knacks over the years.
