It’s tiny, but it’s packing a 125cc Sachs motor – more than enough to get in trouble. Speedway marketed this bike by saying “On the trail, leave the others looking at the tailpipe of your Super Spyder. If your bag is winning, go with the name that consistently wins — Speedway.

Who knows if anyone actually raced these things, but features like a kick starter (instead of a pull starter) and foot-operated shifter flying through five-speeds would at least make the pilot feel like they were on a proper motorcycle.

This example is said to be in “original condition with all mostly original parts”, whatever that means. Ignoring that description, it’s been repainted, but it has the original motor. It’s been in “dry storage for a long time” and ‘has very strong compression”, but the next owner will need to commit to some work if they want it to be more than a display piece going forward.
