  • 1980 Vespa Ciao
I'm an artist living in the N.E. Ohio area. I'm a photographer (animals, nature and wildlife) and a musician (classic rock & blues, guitar, bass & drums). I got my little beastie when I was 16...a guilt gift from my parents when I couldn't get my temps. I rode my '80 for a few years in my youth...and beat the living crap out of it in the process.

After sitting for over 20+ years, I pulled her out...figured with gas prices and all, it wouldn't hurt to take a look at her and see if I could get her running again. I hadn't meant for it to turn into a restoration project, but after I started cleaning up the chrome and stuff, I was hooked...she's back to about 80% of her former glory now and I'm looking forward to many more years of riding!
