Hello all

I am Karm, they call me the Handsome Devil, and I would like to state my interest in becoming a member of this Fraternal Order.

I am in the mighty Columbus and know some of you through the Tiki/bar/scooter/VLV/hang outs scenes around town as well as tiki bar hopping across the country.
I have made the declaration for membership before but as they say, life got in the way of the fun things.

I have been living the Tiki philosophy (be kind to all and share your rum) for most my life. I love the aesthetic and music of the Polynesian ways and have met many many awesome people on my travels across the USA and Canada.
I am also a member of the Ohio Rum Society and boy you guys are some rum nerds! I am learning a ton from that group!

I say Mahalo for your time and consideration.

Forever yours
The Handsome Devil

Two vintage small frames.

Then there are my Asian machines. "In for a Dellorto, in for a rack of Mikunis," they say.

Nice.
I've been looking to get a smallie again, I've had 100 sport, 125 primi and would love to shoehorn a 135+ into a smallie.

What ya got? where you located? in a club? Rally attendee?

I happen to have a 100 Sport, and a 125 Primavera.

I picked up the Primavera at the suggestion Professor Pineapple. I was having loads of fun around the shore with a little Yamaha Champ. The 1100cc Kawasaki is a little big to ride a block to the dock.

The Sport 100 was bought in boxes, aka a basket case, or in "just needs a battery used Harley condition." I've got it back together and running. It needs some fettling to get to the one-kick-always-start that it should be.

The previous owner threw a lot of good new parts at it, so it should get there. It just that when every setting has been changed, it takes a few iterations.

Aloha handsomedevil! I myself have a Stella (which I'm getting ready to sell) and a Vespa Rally 200. Your name sounded familiar so I cyberstalked you a little bit - creepy, but I was right, we've both been at Band Camp. I've trucked my Rally there a few times. Also, looks like we're both Shriners. Es selamu aleikum!

Welcome to the islands. :fez:

Bandcamp, you say? I'm guessing we have some friend crossovers. I'm in Durham and the know quite a few of the Incriminators. Plus, I'm good friends with some of the Cleveland, West Virginia, and Michigan scooter peeps. Shenanigans aplenty!

Welcome, and from the sounds of it, welcome back.

Aloha! Welcome!
I've always wanted a vintage Lambretta they are beautiful (I know they can be a pain, but love is worth it right?) I want to be the mod vs. the hubbies rocker (Triumph and Harley).

How can any bike with only one carburetor, no valves, no camshaft, no chain, no sprockets and just one ignition coil be a pain? Yes, I know most Harley riders can't change their own oil, but you are much better than that.

I hear that Professor Pineapple has a sweet Stella scooter that is looking for a loving new home. Let's turn your want into a have.
