Early 1980s Yamaha minicycle rocking horse with running & revving engine sound. This was a factory promotional item found in some of the dealer showrooms back then. I "rescued" this one from a flea-market vender that did not want to drag it back home.

    Thank you for the comment! I ride 'em, been riding since the '70s. Most of them I've bought, rode for awhile sold, bought more, so on & so on. I normally don't like to post an e-mail to avoid all the spam & junk. Not sure what would be a good way to do this?

    Hi Nick,
    My husband and I came across this extact bouncy bike about 10 years ago except ours is yellow and black. I havent been able to find any info on it. Do you have any information or know where I can get some information about this.

    We love the red and white you have. Have you considered selling it?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the comment Janna. I no longer have this rocker, I sold it years ago, but still wanted to post a pic. I was not able to find much info on it back then. Just that it was supposed to be a dealer promotional item back in the early-mid '80s. Do you have any pics posted of yours? I don't think that I've ever seen another, but I know there has to be more out there somewhere.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I do have a pic but for some reason the site is having trouble letting me upload it. I set it as my profile pic but not sure if it worked or not. I can email you one if you want to give me an email address.

    Thanks for the comment! I've still never seen another one of these and had found little info on them.
    Good luck in your search though!

    Laker mechanical, I have a "Red and White". It's in rough shape, no throttle and faded paint. I re-do foreclosures for buyers and found one in an attic this month. I was going to give it to Goodwill but for some reason felt like looking it up to see if it was worth anything. I have 2 young girls and they're not into dirt bikes. You asked for one so contact me and I'll give it to you free, no strings, no kidding. I live in Georgia.

    I used to have one of these from when I was a kid. I have endless photos and vidoes of me riding it. I would love to get my hands on one for my son... I am expecting in July. Whyby4n do you still have yours???

    Thanks A
  12. NicksCrustyStuff NicksCrustyStuff, 10 months ago
    Thanks for the comment A. I no longer have it.
    It's the only one I've ever run across, other than a couple internet photos here & there.
  13. whyby4n, 9 months ago
    I do still have a red and white minus the throttle. I'm not in this to make a buck. I would like to find a good appreciative person as to use this to share and revive lost memories. Life is too short. Memories last and deserve to be shared. This is free, no strings to anyone that believes the same. Make arrangements at 478-335-2338. I have nothing to gain except the satisfaction that a child can may share that same emotion.

    I have a yellow and black one that I'm restoring for my grandson but I can't find a pic or information on the colors and the battery operated sounds where can I find information it only says blazon-flexible flyer inc on the sound assembly....
    any information would be great....
  15. NicksCrustyStuff NicksCrustyStuff, 8 months ago
    Hi,
    At the time when I had this one, there was almost no info to be found on the internet about them, not sure if there's anything more now. Mine had the same name on it. The sound mechanism should have a battery access door that once opened you can see what size & how many batteries are needed. I forget what size they use. Good luck in your info search.
    Thanks!

    I am desperately searching for one of these rocking bikes! After searching the internet high and low for a dirt bike "rocking horse", this site showed me exactly what I am looking for. As it turns out my almost 2 year old son is obsessed with motorcycles, dirt bikes in particular. If any one out there knows of one for sale, please let me know. It would be much appreciated! Thanks.

    We have a Yamaha YZ version (black and yellow). The throttle that makes the sound has been replaced with a solid metal piece. Otherwise it's in nice shape. I have a picture but not sure how to post it on here.
  18. LAKERMECHANICAL, 6 months ago
    whyby4n I tried to call you to see if you still have it available. My bro will be passing through GA pulling a bike trailer at the end of July and maybe I could work out a pickup. I'm in upstate NY. Vintage Flair, can you try to email a pic to me? I prefer the red/white since thats the one my son had, but will consider the yellow...please email photo to lakermechanical@aol.com. Thanks to all...if these don't work out, still interested if someone comes across them.
