When Officer Jessie Mach is crippled after an assault by an old enemy, his time on motorcycle field duty seems finished. That is before Norman Tuttle recruits him for a secret government project. Mach is to be the test pilot for the Street Hawk, an advanced motorcycle that carries tremendous firepower and is capable of safely controlled periods of speed of over 300 MPH in an urban environment. This deal includes special surgery to repair his legs while keeping him the facade that he is still handicapped. Unfortunately for Tuttle, who can monitor the action from mission control, Jessie insists on getting involved in stopping crime rather than the simple tests Tuttle wants. So now the city has the additional protection of the mysterious superhero known as Street Hawk.Written by

My comment is actually in the form of a question. It seems that the demise of "Street Hawk" is cloaked in mystery. Why was it canceled? Could it be that such a television series caused a few too many young viewers to "TRY THIS at home" on their own motorcycles, get themselves hurt, or worse, and the producers incurred many law suits as a result? It seems obvious this CAN and DOES occur with wrestling, as well as controversy over the series, "Jackass". Might such similar, controversial tragedy surrounding a popular show of the seventies result in a show being canceled? I remember when these self-same European racing bikes were first made available to the buying U.S. public. There was an effort to bar their sale in this country, though obviously to no avail. In inexperienced hands, they can be quite dangerous, to the rider, as well as the general public. So, did legalities such as this play a part in cancellation? I highly value your opinions.
