Oh my Gosh Mike, that is sooo funny. No, I have not seen it before now. However, that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist.
Where did you find it? Do they still produce them? If they ever make an adult size one, I would have a new exercise bike.

LOL! I found the pic while searching Google images.
I believe it was made back in the 80's. Woulden't it be fun to have a "grown up" version to play with.

I am proud to say I had one. Was too young to remember exactly where we got it from but I believe it was either an auction or yard sale. They had a hand brake type thing which would lock up one of the rear wheels and you could do a 180 or if you were really good a 360. Unfortunetely my "burning out" and sliding of the thing eventually chewed up the plastic wheels and made big holes in them making it unrideable. I can only assume it was trashed or sold off at a yard sale sometime later. The funny thing is the 3 wheeler had nothing to do with me getting into KR. I didn't even realize the one I had was related to KR until many years later. Makes me wished I still had it and could still fit on it.

I also had this as a kid. However...I got a hard lesson one day...I wanted to wash my "car" like my parents were and tried to hose the bike off...ALL the decals sprayed off with the dirt...I cried for a while after that haha...oh the good old days!

I had a few of them i got one back in the day for a Christmas gift from "Santa". Wore it out in like a months time and then got another for my Birthday that year. I wish i still had one. Damn Memories... Weird part is I never became a true fan of the show till it was in Reruns and my sister got me hooked on it.

I had a big wheel but I don't remember what it looked like. :( But I drove that thing all over the place, including making my way several miles from home a couple times which resulted in my getting picked up by police both times. :lol: It wasn't too long after that when I started riding a bike, having more "fun" getting into even more trouble.. Not to mention a rather painful incident that ended up with the bike riding me. :shock: I use to pretend the Big Wheel was KITT and later the bike was too.... O_o

I'm sure I have a pic of the big wheel somewhere, I must find it!

I had that and the 4 Wheel full KITT replica for kids (trying to find pics). I will never forget I was riding up and down the sidewalk and these lovely brooklyn sidewalks tore a wheel right off the big wheel it was junk. I was soo upset at least now i can have a life size KITT once I find a decent Trans Am.

I remember those. I remember being really dissapointed because I was like 8 or 9 when they came out therefore too old for one.

I used to have the mini dashboard replica and i would pretend to drive my dads car whille sitting in the back! I loved it until one day my wee brother decided to rip all the wires out the back,and that was the end of that! Also used to have the pedal car,and a small garage with the Knight Rider on the side of it but i dont really know what it had to do with the show!

I remember having this, I loved it. I rode it until the front wheel fell apart. I will say this about the hand break, and trying to do 180s. NEVER try it going down a steep driveway. Yeah, you just might flip the thing, and get a little bloody.

I had that and the dashboard replica and the stunt kitt with tractor trailer rig. I had my own custom made kitt, it was a hot wheels ferrari 308 hardtop painted black and the plastic tongue that was part of the frame stuck out right where kitt's scanner is so that was painted red.

I had this. It was my 3rd and last big wheel. I even had a fake leather jacket when I was a kid that I liked to wear a lot and wore it with pride on my Knight Rider Big Wheel. Good times!
