1978 Green Machine

I was gonna go for the Big Wheel commercial, but then saw this later version. it was never as popular as the Big Wheel (every kid or his brother had one of those back in the day) but I knew a few people who owned one. I had to have ridden one once or twice, but it seems like Marx complicated it to try to top the simpler Big Wheel.

it didn't work. simpler was better for kids.  do kids even ride these things? I know I wiped out more than once doing rather dangerous stunts, but those things sure took a beating.
