The July 1st issue of Bicycle Retailer and Industry News reports that Tony Hawk has inked a deal for a signature bike line with a company called Dynacraft. Tony Hawk will be joining Dynacraft’s illustrious lineup of brands that include Hot Wheels and Barbie. You can buy these performance machines at such fine cycling outfitters as Amazon.com and Target. What’s that? concerned about the quality? Not to worry, according to Bicycle Retailer and Industry News
Tony Hawk bikes will be completely different than anything Dynacraft has distributed in the past,” said John Bisges, managing director at Dynacraft. “They will have higher end components, updated frames and the most cutting edge graphics ever. We are all extremely excited about this new bike line, and are certain it will be a big hit when we showcase it to customers at this year’s Interbike show.” The line will be available in retail stores beginning in spring 2008.
I’m placing bets that Tony Hawk bicycles will likely be a BMX facsimile. Maybe we can expect a Matt Hoffman to start hawking toy skateboards in retaliation. Get a closeup of some previous Dynacraft “cutting edge graphics” after the jump. Update: Not just one bike line, but two! “Huckjam” gets it’s own series of bicycles.

From the Times-Herald – Vallejo Ca: AmCan bikemaker to design Tony Hawk models
Dynacraft is planning two series of “Tony Hawk” bikes. The Huckjam Series will target Dynacraft’s mass merchandise customers. The Signature Series will be designed for sporting goods chains and other specialty retail customers. This series will include a premium line of carbon-fiber bikes and high-end models to be distributed online and through select dealers.
Huckjam bikes? Well that’s a lot easier to swallow. You should be able to pick up a Huckjam or Tony Hawk signature bike in Spiring of 2008.
