I am interested in connecting with anyone that owns, or did own, one of
these very rare machines.  Dick was kind enough to post some advertizing
for these scooters on your website.  I am interested in finding any
parts or whole scooters or information that was published about these,
including information about how may were built.  They were manufactured
in Los Angeles CA for a few years prior to WWII.  I thought they were
only sold locally, but have heard suggestions that they may have been
sold elsewhere. Thanks for your wonderful website!!
