HERO SERIES BIKE TIMELINE

Post by scott » Mon Sep 17, 2018 4:56 am

Jesse1,

Thanks very much for sharing all the photo's and stories of the bikes. It's been like gold to all of us I'm sure.

I know the "hero" series bike timeline from when it was sold from Florida years back. Eric Nagy owned it then, along with a costume (claimed he had a helmet, but no photo's of it surfaced to my knowledge) Nagy sold it on ebay to my online pal Andy Baker in the UK. Andy kept it for awhile, but needed to get rid of it and offered it to me for the same $12,000 price he bought it for. I couldn't afford that, but at the time I was in contact with Chris Brohman about buying Street Hawk fiberglass parts and put the two in contact. Brohman bought the bike, and restored it and eventually sold it to Cars Of The Stars in Keswick. When that museum closed down it was bought by the museum in Florida, and is currently back in that state again.

My question for you: Did you sell the "hero" series bike directly to Nagy in Florida, or did it pass through someone's hands before he came to own it?

I find the history of the bikes fascinating...thanks!

No, I did not sell it to Nagy. I sold it to a local guy named Richard. Best that I can remember; memory is the second thing that goes, the first thing is..., I forgot. He and his bud's worked at one of the local motorcycle shops in Chandler/Mesa AZ. These guys there bought most of the bikes. I say around 4-5 of them. Don't know where they went from there. :oops:

Okay...gotcha, I remember he said it came from AZ, but he never got into specifics.

Thanks very much!

That last set of fiberglass parts, helmet, boots, and suit were sold to a firefighter in Downey, California
But only partially paid me! I am still pissed after 30 plus years..... :evil:

That freakin sucks, I don't blame you for still being pissed.

Do you still remember his name? Sounds like a guy those of us in the Street Hawk community should avoid any potential deals with.
