I think there were two variations. Or an early one and late one. Mine was like yours, the tower was thee same but the bike had no chrome and everything had no pizzaz. It was like a cream color.

The bike above got banned because the bike would pull out sisters long hair when you put the back wheel to it. It was a gyro or something and it didn't stop for a long while. Now they all go that break away feature.

 

I had one of these too. Freaking awesome!!!

Hell yeah I had one of those Evel Knievels when I was a kid.  That thing kicked ass.

 

How about the old SSP Racers.  Those were bad ass as well.

Ha ha, Green Machines... Coolest thing in the world till I got a bicycle. My dad popriveted an old bicycle tire to the front wheel after I flat spotted it... It was no where near as fun with the extra traction and it would spin fast enough to fling you off. Had one of those Evel Knievel motorcycles too, the one that actually went fast. It disappeared after mom caught me launching it off of the top of the stairs... "Clean your room and youll find it" she said... Bullshit.

I remember having the Evil Knievel. I saw green machines at Costco during Christmas. Way more fun than big wheels.
