    Hello again. Anybody remember these toy's from the late 70's early 80's era?
    They were long, skinny pull-back motorcycles, that were also pens.

    Plus, I'm trying to remember a group of cars that were about Hot Wheel size, but had weapons and such. I think they even had launchers for the cars.

    Sorry if this is so vague, but brain can only remember tid-bit's from so long ago. I had both of these toys when I was really, really young.

    Except for the weapons, the second item sorta sounds like "Burnin' Key Cars." They had an orange plastic key which you would plug into the back of the car, then squeeze to launch.

    Nope, I remember those all right and it wasn't Key-Cars.
    Think Jason Stathams movie Death Race.

    Nope, just regular cars that looked similar to those on Death Race. That link didn't help.

    I had a couple of those weapon cars you're thinking of. Trying to remember the name of them, now...

    There was a game of somesort involved with them, where you'd crash them into each other, trying to knock off the others' weapons, and gain points for each weapon removed from your opponent.

    I'll look those up and see if that's them. Thanks! Any ideas on the motorcycles? I'm starting to think they weren't pens, but they were very skinny, long almost dragster-like bikes that you pull-back. I'm thinking late 70's.

    Nope, not Road Wars.

    I'd say maybe the cars were Roadblasters, but those didn't come out until 1987.
