A mother-less boy, Mike (Fraser Stephen-Smith), and his older sister, Sandra (Josie Vendramini), are forced to move to a big town when their father's farming enterprise fails, and they are not happy about it. Almost immediately, on their doorstep, they get caught up in a major jewel theft. This was originally an eight-episode Children's television series, "Steel Riders", made in New Zealand; soon after being aired internationally, it was edited together and unfortunately reduced in length to make a VHS video movie in the USA, re-titled "Young Detectives On Wheels". The main casualty in the movie edit relates to the sub-plot of the BMX boys trying to save their track from redevelopment, as well as general scenes in which Mike and Sandra try to establish themselves in new surroundings.
Motion Picture Rating
Rated PG for some mild caper action
