So does anyone else remember this short lived 80's super vehicle show.
I think it aired in 85 and lasted 13 episodes starring Rex Smith.
Supposable it was a top secret government motorcycle with a top speed of between 200-300mph which wasn't bad for a bike based round a 500cc Honda motorcrosser.
Now i didn't think this series was that bad at the time and given another series i think it would of been ok,but of course it was taking on Knight Rider with the Hoff and Airwolf that were both established at the time so guess it didn't stand a chance.

So did anyone else ride their bmx round pretending to be Street Hawk or was it just me.

I loved Street Hawk!
And i believe that i still do, but i haven´t bought this dvd set yet.


The Tangerine Dream theme tune is fantastic.
It´s on their Le Parc album (1985), titled "Le Parc (L.A. - Streethawk)"

I remember loving this as a kid, it's a shame it only lasted for 13 episodes.

Thanks to aTomik, I now have the theme tune on continuous play.. [Razz]

Seriously, how good were/are Tangerine Dream.

I loved watching this show. The billboard would split down the middle and Streethawk would shoot out of there like a bat out of hell.


George Clooney played a character on one episode.

I loved Street Hawk! Great '80's show that featured a tricked-out motorcycle. I actually liked this a lot better than Knight Rider at the time.

IIRC, this show also starred Robert Englund, better known as Freddy from the Nightmare on Elm Street films.
