    Recently picked this Spyder up in a nearby area - Ser. No. 502459510248991. Thinking it was made by Murray?

    It looks like it's in very good condition - just dust, no rust! 24" wheels with a 1.75" Carlisle red striped rim/tire in back and 1 3/8" up front - crazy town.

    Seat is perfect - the shifter knob was probably black but looks great as it is. All other parts seem to be correct and present.

    Found a lot of info online, other advert. pics all around it and I am building a research album. I would love to find a catalog pic of this exact model but no luck after several hours searching. Can anyone help?

    I understand part of the serial number was included in their ads and helps nail down the year it was offered.

    Thanks!

    I may have it in a book with all other muscle bikes of that year era. Can check later.
