That's a hoot...I never heard Otis was a stand-up comedian.
Here is a picture of Otis and his brother Orville.

Just to keep this interesting thread, on an interesting man
active. I had heard Otis had been a stand-up comedian at one
point in his colorful life. I would love to hear more about
this theatrical facet of Mr. Spiker's life.

Doing some research in some old AMCA magazines from 1977
Medina, Ohio meet on Doc Cleveland's farm, I found this photo
of Otis Spiker. Unfortunately I'm old enough that I was at
this meet, riding my Suzuki T500 in from grad school.

Otis was a character. Some members didn't care for him but he
was a Henderson guy through and through, and ran the Henderson
Restoration Society. Always saw him chomping down on a cigar.
