More Love!

Here's our friend Chris V. sportin' the new Troop 1 while burning up Cali roadways! Thanks Chris, glad you dig the lid!

It's that time again!

Long Beach swap time that is. We'll be out there as usual, and we'll make sure to bring some helmets this time! Look for us in spot 305 back by all the other losers!

If you got it in ya, we'll also be out at Santa Fe Importers on Saturday noon sharp for lunch and BS with Choper Dave, Nelson, Blue Collar Chris and the crew. After that, we're scooting over to the Garage Company hot dog fest or whatever they're calling it for some more BS and good times, I'm sure! They're located at 956 W Hyde Park Blvd., in Inglewood, CA. As if that weren't enough, we'll be shooting to Gasser for bike night later on and then finally turning in just before having to wake up for the swap... I'm tired already!

In Good Company!

Paulo from Joe King Speedshop dropped by the booth at Born Free and not only did he pick up a Troop helmet, but had me sign his super show helmet! After seeing who else got elected to be on there, I'm truly humbled and happy to be placed in their company. Check his link to see the run-down. Thanks Paulo, great meeting you and hopefully we'll get to hang later this year if you head out east!

Another new deal and bitchin' product to go along with it!

We just solidified our relationship with Lil Joe's Legendary Leathers and are now offering the Joe's Vest, Black Magic Vest, and Enforcer Jacket in the STORE! They should be in stock by July 1, but if you need one in a hurry, or are looking for one of their other great products, email us at and we'll get you going right away. Durable, comfortable jackets and vests made in the USA... can't go wrong!

Gettin' some love!

Craig, also known as Scrapmetalart over at Front Street Cycles showed some love recently with this pic of his bitchin lid with our new Troop3 face mask on it. Great stuff man, thanks! Check out his work and buy a set or ten of his bars. They rule!

EC Murder Van spotting!

The van got caught in a photo over on the Death Science site. Go check 'em out, good stuff from a good set of eastern boys.

The van... making that Merc look bad. Real bad.

New stuff in the store!

Oh yeah, another new parts update for ya! We just got the new Lo-Pro2 seats in and they rule. Comfort and style for your 04 and up Sporty. Now you can stop drooling over the Lo-Pro original that wouldn't fit your scoot and get your own!

We also got the new FUCK tail light in! This beauty tells it like it is for sure. Not a lot of other explainin' to do here.

The new Whatsel fender is in too. Lightweight PC/ABS ribbed fender for your sporty. Cut those rails down and give your scoot the look you've been craving. Just don't put your girl on it... unless you're looking for a good excuse to be single.

And last, but not least, is the new TT&Co. shirt. Ringer T in blue with dark blue trim and a smart logo to show all your friends. Don't say we didn't warn you when you get attacked by the local "women of ill repute" while wearing this one!

We're Baaaaack!

Holy crap, we're back! Thanks to all of you for the patience over the last week as we went and picked up some glory from Colorado. Went to get the '67 shovel and lo-and-behold, we ran into a gent by the name of Generous Gene out in Colorado Springs. Ol' Gene had a righteous pan that needed a new home, so after some hagglin' we made sure it had one. Also got to hook up with some of our military brothers met over on the ChopCult there in town and were more than happy to drop off some swag to help their spirits before shipping off to Afghanistan. Good luck friends, keep safe and we'll see you on the other side!

Orders shipped out first thing today and we'll be catching up to all the email questions too. Thanks again!

One word... EPIC!

Born Free is in the history books now and it was truly epic. Best place ever to come see good people and more amazing scoots than ever assembled in one place in a very long time. We'd like to thank everyone that showed up and came to say hello. For EC, this was the best show ever! Met a ton of people we only knew from the internet, more that we didn't know at all, and generated more interest in our schtuff than we could handle. Big thanks to those that bought gear from us! It's always appreciated tons.

Biggest cool factor of the show was all the interest in the Troop helmets taking hold and watching people go grab everyone they could to show 'em off. You guys are our best salespeople by far! So much thanks for the great words.

Biggest bummer of the show was the lack of time to get to hang with everyone since we were so busy, and the fact that being locked in the booth means missing most of the bikes! Did get some bitchin' shots before the flood came in though and got to mingle with our buddies a little. Great seeing Walt from Kickstart, George from Spartan Frameworks, Michael from Evil Spirit, the Moon Eyes crew (thanks Shige!), the Bolts Action crew, and everyone else that we got to shoot the shit with a while. All the regulars turned out in force, but it was the non-local set that wowed us the most. People from EVERYWHERE. Finally met the Joe King crew from Brazil, who are stoked on the Troop lids and they actually had me sign their "vacation helmet"! Australia, France, Spain, UK, Germany... crap man, we met the entire planet! Coolest folks from around the world and we're glad to have made all the new friends.

The biggest thanks are in order for both the Born and Free sides of this event. Those boys pulled out all the stops and created a living, breathing, beast of a show! You guys rock.

Gratuitous bike shot. I'll post more over on the Simple Math site for sure.

This was the street just after we set up. 9am. 3 HOURS before the show even opened!

This might have been 10:30. Anyway, you get the idea. It was already big before the gates really opened. This was about the last image I got of the general area before the crowds got so big, we had to be rooted in the booth. Great times!

Weekend order handling update!

With the greatness that is and will be BORN FREE, we'll be closing the shop down for the weekend. Come out and see us and scoop all the latest gear. We'll have all the goods at the show.

For orders placed after 2pm today, we'll ship those out Monday. Get it in before that, and we'll get it out today!

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Oh yeah... catch us here too!

Born Pre! I hear they're givin away a bitchin mini-bike! Pre-show madness at the Avalon in Costa Mesa. Let the good times roll!

Don't you dare miss it!

Born Free that is. It's this Saturday and if you don't make it, just go ahead and bury yourself to get it over with. Tons of good people, great bikes and better times are in store for the entire weekend! Get your butt up and find a way to the area! We'll be out in force as usual and bring all the good stuff with us for sure. Stop by the booth and let us see your ugly mugs!

Enough Already!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. What Craze? You got another cool thing in the store? ... YAWN...

Wake up, slap your momma and check these out! Troop face masks for your old lids. Now you can take your old, close-fitting 3/4 lid and bring it into the now with a facemask to make the ladies swoon. Come in white for slappin' paint on, or just run 'em as they are. Check 'em in the STORE!

Some new lids to compliment the new... lids!

In addition to finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with our helmets, we also just got the new Keep Combustin' hats in the door! Same great double-clasp trucker as our other lids with the new design. Still just 13 bucks! Grab one quick!

They're HERE!

The wait it finally over! Helmets are good to get picked up tomorrow and we'll be stocking them as quick as we can for sellin'. We'll be taking care of all the preorders before putting them up for general sale on the store. Those who have been waiting and are on the list should expect an email or phone call by the end of the weekend latest. Once the preorder crew is taken care of, they're up for grabs!

You can still get on the list by emailing us at and telling us what color and size you want. Make sure to include your top choice and next in line for colors, as some like flat black and grey are almost gone already!
