The Little Rascal’s Spanky loves Speed-O Bikes


With its motorcycle styling who wouldn’t love a Speed-O bike? In this promo from the 1930s we see Spanky from the Little Rascals (Our Gang) cruising around on one. What is alarming about this bit of film is that Spanky seems to be riding on top of a roof with a very poorly constructed safety rail. Magical times those 1930s.
