French Traduire


Jesse Mach (Rex Smith) is a motorcycle passionate police officer. His stuntman's talents were noticed by Norman Tuttle (Joe Regalbuto), an engineer working for the federal government, who has developed an extremely sophisticated motorcycle, "Street Hawke" or the "Fake of the Streets".

This machine must be used secretly in crime situations normally involving the intervention of the police. Tuttle needs a character from Jesse Mach's caliber to drive her racing car. The commitment he asks him is a commitment to life with the obligation to keep his identity secret. Jesse accepts ...

He will be the only pilot of this machine which can take thirty meters in the air as well as to attack and neutralize the enemy thanks to a system of laser rays. Impressive...

All closely followed by Norman who, from a central computer, controls the technical functions of "street hawk" and warns Jesse of the danger.

Both, whose characters are so different, will get to know each other and train an amazing team.

Mechanical Tonnerre (Street Hawk in English) was an American television series which was broadcast for the first time in 1985. The series featured a futuristic super-motorcycle called Street Hawk, which was used by an infiltrated police officer to fight crime in the streets of Los Angeles.

The main character in the series was Jesse Mach (interpreted by Rex Smith), a former speed motorcycle that had been seriously injured in an accident. After being recruited by the Street Hawk project, Jesse used the high-tech motorcycle to fight crime under cover. The series followed Jesse's adventures when he faced dangerous criminals and forces that wanted to end the Street Hawk project.

The series was known for its impressive special effects, including the Moto Street Hawk itself, which had superhuman capacities such as supersonic speed and the ability to jump large buildings. The series also presented actors such as Joe Regalbuto and launches Legault in secondary roles.

Unfortunately, the series lasted only one season of 13 episodes due to high production costs and low audiences. However, the series has won a certain cult recognition over the years and remains an important part of the history of American television.
