The KITT Knight Rider Bicycle was the Coolest Thing on Two Wheels

A friend of mine had the Knight Rider bicycle. When he came around the corning riding it, my jaw almost dropped to the floor. It was a site to behold with amazing detailing. Over the course of the next year I heard him complain constantly about the bike and little by little pieces broke off or were torn off by him. By the end the bike looked like any other bike. It was a sad transition, but the memory of that bike has always stuck with me.

That is why I was pleased as Hawaiian Punch to see that Hake’s was selling one. I think I might be a little too large to ride it, but if I owned it, that would not stop me.

    The scanner bar was just a sticker unless your dad worked for Radio Shack and modded it. Looking back, I was a lucky kid.
