In 1976 I was four years old. I don't remember much but I do remember how amped everybody was about the bicentennial.  That year for christmas my brother and I got a spirit of 76 train set and a Tyco stars and stripes slot car track. My dad seemed to play with them more than us, but I loved them just the same. Everybody was getting in on the action. The whole world looked red white and blue.

Probably my favorite is the Bicentennial Harleys . The company, then owned by AMF, was getting their ass kicked and in 76 they were the only motorcycle company who could capitalize on Bicentennial fever. If I could have any bike it would be a Bicentennial Sportster. The graphics are perfect.
