I had the opportunity to compare this full deluxe set with the Deluxe Stunt Cycle only set. This is the better made of the two.

Don't buy the red, blue and chrome cycle, it is not made anywhere near as well as the black, white and chrome version that came with the Deluxe Stunt Set.

The Red, Blue & Chrome cycle is absolutely beautiful, but in my estimation it is otherwise junk. It is fit only for display. The gyro inside the cycle is defective in manufacturing somehow. It wont crank as fast as the other cycle, it is way louder with a grinding, screech that hurts my teeth and destroys my ears, and was very rough running. I took 12 of them (red, blue chrome cycle) out of the box and every last one was junk. All had the same problem.

The Black, White & Chrome cycle, however, was very smooth running, cranked easily to very high speeds and jumped wonderfully. The only problem I have with this set is that energizer (winder) has stripped a gear or some teeth or something because it went from working great to slipping and wont crank the bike that fast anymore. I only had this about 2 weeks when it happend.

If you are going to get a set, definately get the Deluxe set with he ramps and hoop of fire, brick wall etc. It has the better bike. I think the good bike is now available without the other stuff in the set as well. The chrome bike is junk...steer clear of that set.

This toy was the biggest disappointment. I had one as a kid and had a lot of fun with it, so I bought one for my son. You can't even wind it up, its too hard to turn the dial. I think someone bought the rights to it and made it out of cheap parts. This crap is not worth one dollar much less anything higher. Seemed like a great idea, but it turned out to be the worse toy that I have ever bought.

This toy is a complete piece of crap. It never went more than 10 feet before falling over (I could have lived with that) but the worst part of the toy is the garbage materials they made the inner gears out of, they were worn out in 2 days. I will be going to ebay to find an origonal one. They may have used the same molds as the origonal to make the bike, but the materials they now use are far inferior to the origonal. It was sad that I gave this to my 3 year old (who was asking santa for it)for xmass and she never got the enjoyment out of it that I had gotten from the origonal on in the 70's. I cant stress enough DO NOT BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP IT WILL ONLY LEAD TO DISSSAPOINTMENT!!! Especially if you owned an origonal!!

My wife bought me this for christmas because i had one as a boy and loved playing with it. I was so excited to relive some of my childhood ( still a kid really!) and watch evil fly down my hallway and up the ramp!! What a HUGE DISAPOINTMENT!! It took me a while to even get the bike to stay on the base and when i finally released the bike it just crashed right in front of me every time. I have played around with this thing for a while and realized that it's just a cheap piece of crap that won't do anything. I am amazed that this company produced such a bad replica probably knowing it couldnt hold a candle to the original. DONT BUY THIS JUNK!!!

I was SUCH A FAN of the old Evel Knievel Stunt Sets of the 1970's! All my friends had one and I loved playing with theirs. I bought this one for my 6 year old son last year for Christmas. I wanted him to see what good old fashioned clean fun used to be like when we were kids. This toy is very difficult for kids to maneuver! It was not a very sturdy construction as well. It is really hard to get the motorcycle positioned properly into the crank base---too difficult for a 6 year old especially, and at times difficult for his 35 year old parents as well! After much disappointment and frustration in my son's eyes, I packed it away and realized, HEY---THERE'S A REASON WHY THEY STOPPED MAKING TOYS LIKE THESE! I don't think the construction of this toy has withstood the test of time, especially into this millenium. It is as if it needs to be brought up to 2006 standards, not 1976 toy standards! The ramps are very fragile plastic, and the pieces are like JUNK from the dollar store. I bought mine from a Playthings Past Catalog, and paid WAY more than Amazon offers it! I think it was around $59.99 plus shipping. What was I thinking?????

It was a great trip down memory lane, but now, Evel Kenievel now lies (naked, thanks to the 3 year old little brother) in the bottom of the toy box. Maybe he'll be a good alternative for Barbies someday!

As you can see from past postings, there is a lot of disappointment with this set. This is down to poor quality control, with a lot of bikes not put together correctly. Trust me, get a good one and it's a lot of fun, a bad one, and it's worse than useless. Come on poof-slinky/ideal, this iconic toy deserves better!

Great product, just like the older set but better. I liked being able to show my son one of the toys i played with as a child without the vintage price tag.

It seems like when I was a kid, I was able to control my Evel Knievel motorcycle better, as well as to make it jump farther than this set. My 6 year old still thinks it's cool, but I won't tell him that my original set was better.

The quality is comparable to most other Chinese-made toys sold these days. Nothing seems like it's made as good at it used to be, but this set is not inferior to new Hot Wheels playsets.

There are some cool accessories here that make it a good time consuming activity for kids that doesn't involve TV. For the money, it's not a bad value. Just hoped it would be as fun as my set was when I was 6.
