This marks the first time I’ve photographed the vintage Speeder Bike.

As toys go it’s a fairly genius design that features a tension bar for holding the action figure’s legs into place, steering flaps on the rear that articulate in conjunction with the bottom struts, and of course the best – a secret button that explodes the whole shebang.

Those Biker Scouts never see it coming!
