I just stumbled across your site, yep great memories come flooding back.
I LOVED GI Joe/Action Man....then I noticed the r-r-raw power bike toy, I would've had one around '76 I think.
I'm a huge Iggy/Stooges fan, maybe this toy fueled my Iggy fixation later on in life.

This is sooo cool that I found your website! I had one in the 70's. We all got them for Easter. I have been looking for one for my kids since my oldest was 4. He is 17 now and have still never been able to get one! My husband never had one and thought I was crazy all these years. Thanks for letting me show them the coolest toy I ever got from the Easter Bunny!

Are you kidding me???
This thing was the greatest invention in bicycling history.
It was the perfect complement to my Huffy Thunder Road. I think it scored me a few chicks neXt door. Ages 8,10,12.

It was (I think) the Christmas of 1976 because I recieved my first schwinn ("Lil' Chic") bike on sept. of '76. I recieved the R-Raw Power toy. I remember it was blue.(my schwinn bike was yellow)I played with it before I had it put on my bike. I had the MOST fun with that thing!

Wow, memoories! I was six years old in 1976, and everything was red, white and blue! My bike was mostly white with this great Evel Knieval-look. I was definitely the coolest with this r-r-r-r-r-revving grip on the handle. Loved it!

I remember this on my huffy banana seat. It had a smoked grey paint job with a lightning bolt on the seat. Loved sneaking up on the girls and then RRRRRRRReving the Raw Power to make them jump! Ifanyone knows where I can find this bike, please email me. thanks, John. firstname.lastname@example.org

I had the same Huffy bike. I think it was called "The Hombre". I hated it then. And would pay top dollar today for a vintage model with fake plastic gas tank and fat orange banana seat.

There was a kid in my school that has a chopper bicycle with one of these. He would only answer you if you called him the Fonz and he had a switchblade comb. he would chase me around the playground on that bike and try to kiss me. I did think the bike was cool but the Fonz had to go.

I had one of these but it was "The Fonz" Version. It was black and my Quicksilver bike was the talk of the Daggett Street.

Isn't it amazing how a cheap little toy like this can totally capture a kid's imagination? My dad put this thing on my purple metal-flake, yellow banana seated chopper bike, and I felt like the king of the world, revving for the neighbors. Totally awesome memory...thanks.
