View Full Version : Sorry! Another "identify-my-Spyder-thread"

07-25-2006, 03:06 PM
I've bought a box with old Spyders and got this fellow.
I have been looking all over internet and haven't found what model it is.
My biggest problem is the two holes in the front close to the valve and the fact that there is no threads. I can put in a VA but the holes are wrong.
Plz help!

that is a Compact-A or Compact-P depending on the frame (which i'm assuming you don't have). it was one of the very first Compacts (the two holes on the side), it's even older than mine (http://www.spyder.tv/forums/showthread.php?t=2525). it's especially unique because of the powerfeed... normally the top of the feed is narrower, but some of the very first Spyders and Compacts had a wider end. yours is not tapered nor larger, i've not seen one like that. it could also be a Targa (Spyder clone), but i don't have any pics of those so i couldn't tell you for sure.

hope that clears it up!

I believe so! Thank you very much!

I found a diagram for A and P.
Now I know it is a Spyder Compact A. (Yes, it is the A-frame #31L)

Now I need a diagram for the compact I got...

That's a Targa
