The Old Nasty Yacht Club needs you!

Since 2012, The Old Nasty Yacht Club has been the home of Motor City Riot, Detroit’s largest moped club.
 This building has allowed the club to host events from simple “Moped Mondays” and game nights to large scale operations like moped rallies with 250+ people from across the country, Toys for Tots charity drives, and more.

One of the large events is the annual Get Your Shit Running for Spring event where people from across the region come to Detroit for a full weekend to commiserate with their moped buddies and work on their vintage mopeds in preparation for the upcoming riding season. It is a wonderfully fun event and we’d love to see as many people as possible come out to enjoy it.

This year’s event has a greater significance as it is also a major fundraising push to help Motor City Riot maintain use of the Old Nasty Yacht Club. 

Severe fire damage to the building requires work to get it up to code.

As a club of Detroit residents and Detroit boosters, we are passionate about the city’s well-being and excited about improvements happening around the city. We are glad that property owners are being held to a higher standard. Fortunately/unfortunately that means us too…  Wah Wah….

The club house is in need of major renovations to ensure compliance with the rules that the city of Detroit has always had, but not previously enforced.


To assist with this, Motor City Riot is raffling off this beautiful Motomarina Sebring, featuring the following:

  • Morini M1KS case-inducted motor
  • Ported 43.5mm M1 Gila kit (the best M1 kit)
  • MLM People’s Pipe
  • 19 PHGB Carburetor
  • Springed stock clutch
  • Custom paint and decals job
  • 17″ Acorn mag wheels with new tires, tubes.
  • Two sets of foot pegs already installed!
