G'day to you all,

I remember playing a game about 20 years ago and it was a motorcycle game.
The screen was black and white.
There was 3 white lines across the screen.
You rode the motorcycle and from memory the motorcycle started in the upper left corner and moved to the right along the bar and moved to the next lower bar and gained speed as you wound on the throttle.
Along the bottom of the screen there was a little jump with one bus.
If you jumped the bus, it added more and more.
If you gave it too much throttle the bike flipped and you crash and burn.

Does any one know the name of the game?
Is it supported by mame?

That would be Stunt Cycle, made by Atari in 1976.

Yeah stunt cycle for sure if it was B&W. 20 years ago it was an old machine. Good to see another menber from Townsville. If you like the old B&W stuff I have a Indy here (nearly the same cab as Stunt cycle) and asteroids, welcome to have a game!

Welcome to Aussie Arcade dezerae,

Have fun around here.

The game you are referring to is what the others have said, Atari Stunt Cycle. Is it in Mame? No. It is all Discrete logic, NO CPU. There was once work being done on a "Simulator" but this has ceased.

I had this on my hanimex years ago (early '80s). Was an awesome game! :)
