(RNN) – The crunch of the asphalt beneath the wheels, the tassels and flags flapping in the wind, the wicked spinouts on your buddy's driveway – there's nothing quite like riding a Big Wheel.

The children of the '70s and '80s can relive their days of cruising the neighborhood to the tree house with the High Roll Adult Size Big Wheel. It is available for purchase and "race ready," according to High Roller USA.

A company-made video of the first test rides shows a group who has a hard time containing their giggles of joy.

"I'm 12 … still!" one rider says.

It is made for riders from 5'2" to 6'6" and can hold up to 275 pounds, according to the manufacturer specs. The website Gearjunkie.com listed the Adult Big Wheel among its best finds at the Outdoor Retailer show in August.

At $599.99, the trike has a grown-up price tag. There are no decals of Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. either. But the new version has a steel frame, plush seat, alloy rims, a 26-inch front wheel and molded 14-inch plastic rear wheels "for power slides and drifting."

It comes complete with a bell and tassels, too, because of course it does.
