[show]The "street hawk" bike was built on a stock bike frame made up with fiber-glass fabricated molded body parts. There were six bikes rotated during production, always requiring replacement fenders, wheels, cowls, and engine repairs. The second unit stunt filming crew had to be coordinated with the first unit film crew schedule because of both the "street hawk" star and the bike! Required to work together on the same day. Normally, the first unit remained on stage at Universal City. The second unit stunt crew filmed on location away from the stage with Rex doubled by a stunt man in wardrobe.
- The series was originally to be titled "Falconer". But there was already a pilot that season with that same title.

[show]Responsible for the art direction of the daily series' locations and/or stage sets, the art department team was expected to supervise and co-ordinate the second unit stunt filming unit as well. William Tuntke (art director), Francis "Frank" Pezza and Bob Jillson (assistant Art directors) were the initiating Universal Studios' art department design team assigned the pilot and subsequent five shows. Producer Stephan Cragg and the show's other Producers found Tuntke and Pezza failed co-ordinating the "Street Hawk" bike stunt film unit's special effects requirements. Stephan Cragg had worked with Hub Braden on the 1982 MGM-CBS TV series "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". Stephan Cragg asked Braden to take over "Street Hawk" as the show's art director. Braden was currently working at 20th Century Fox on the Glenn Larson and Harker Wade CBS-Fox series "Cover Up". Braden told Stephan Cragg that he would not make a lateral job move from one studio to another at scale, unless he would be offered more money to quit one show, moving (jumping ship) onto another studio project for more pay. Understanding the dilemma, Stephan Cragg offered Braden $300 over scale. When Braden told Harker Wade that he had been offered more pay, Harker Wade called the "Air Wolf UPM" questioning Braden's pay deal memo in order to stay with the "Cover Up" production crew. "Air Wolf" was not changing nor firing their art direction team! Harker called Braden's bluff by not meeting Braden's pay raise deal memo to remain on Fox's "Cover Up". Fox's show UPM told Braden that Harker had called Universal's "Air Wolf UPM" confirming that their staff was not changing. Hub laughed, responding in dismay, "Harker called the wrong show UPM, "Street Hawk...not...Air Wolf!"
