The third recall in 2000 involved the Harley-Davidson motor cycle ride-ons, In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price is recalling about 218,000 battery-powered Power Wheels Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride-ons for repair. The foot pedals, which activate the ride-ons, can stick in the "on" position. Children can be injured when the motorcycle ride-ons fail to stop and strike other objects. The recalled Power Wheels Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride-ons have model numbers 74290, 74293 (with a red body) and 74298 (with a black body). A "Power Wheels by Fisher-Price" logo is located on the left side of the seat on the product, and the model number is located on a label in the battery compartment. Only model numbers 74290, 74293 and 74298 are being recalled. These vehicles are intended for children 3 and older, and the vehicles' speed is 2.5 or 5 mph. Toy, mass merchandise and discount stores, and Harley-Davidson dealerships sold the motorcycle ride-ons nationwide from September 1999 through August 2000 for about $190 for the red vehicle and $700 for the black vehicle.
The Power Wheels Jeep Wrangler from Fisher-Price promotes a basic understanding of cause & effect as kids learn how to power the vehicle and make it go forward, back, steer, stop and start it up again. This easy-to-drive 4-wheeler helps build gross motor skills as kids cruise around the yard, on the sidewalk, or down the driveway – and stop safely when they take their foot off the pedal. Beginners start at a fun but safe 2.5 mph in forward and reverse – and when they’re ready, adults can move them up to 5 mph in the forward direction by removing the high speed lock-out.
