Trying to remember a cartoon which aired when I was about 6 or so.... would be 1984 or there abouts...

The only way I can explain it is the heroes rode armed motorcycles, similar to the ones Will Smith had in 'Men in Black 3'. Basically a single wheel and the rider sat inside it....

That is about all I remember though.... Anybody have any idea what I am talking about?

Possibly the Rimfire from

Spiral Zone(87)

The evil scientist Overlord, develops a device that is able to spread an engineered virus across half the globe. The virus makes the infected mindless zombies. Overlord is able to treat a group of his mercenaries and make them immune to the zone's effects, although the treatment leaves their faces with red markings. His soldiers are called the Black Widows.

The nations not under the influence of the virus pool their resources to create an elite team to stop the evil doctor and his forces.Only those with special helmets are immune to the effects. The forces of good are called the Zone Raiders. Their mission was to end the reign of Overlord by destroying his emitters, and finding a cure for the strange infection.

It's definitely Spiral Zone. There's not another show on earth that had a similar vehicle.

Yes but Amazing 3 was long lost by 1984 and only 13 episodes were re-discovered in the dumpster at a CBS affiliate by an employee in the late 90s (no joke). Justice league is to new and it could have been that one episode of Thundarr but unlikely. So it would have to be Spiral Zone in my opinion- it fits the time frame and featured the vehicle in just about every episode. Only Amazing 3 would be another series featuring a single wheeled vehicle in almost every episode, but as stated the entire series was lost at that point in time.

I am fairly certain it is Spiral Zone.

Found a episode on Youtube, going to watch it, maybe it boosts my memory a tad more but there are features that certainly look like it is Spiral Zone!

Thanks guys, your knowledge off these things amazes me.
