Everyone to the Bars!

Handle bars that is. Stock bars suck. Period. Rip 'em off and start fresh with one of our new choices from Jason Roche at Special '79 fab shop. You've got the Trouble Bars with that narrow T-bar style or our Bone Pickers that will get you as slim as you need to be and dress up that build with authority. All are made from 1" 304 DOM Stainless and built to last. Top it off with the fact that they are made right here in America by an independent, one-man shop and you've got a winner for sure!

American Steel!

Got some new stuff on deck here at the store. First up is a stock of new seat pans from Kevin Baas that are top-notch for sure! Heavy duty 1/8" steel pan made in America with all the hardware pressed in. These babies will handle everything you can throw at them and more. Measure 13" from tip to tail and 9" across the widest point out back. Nice, smooth curves to keep you comfy once you put your favorite padding and cover on it. Studs are spaced 3 1/4 up front and 6" between the back two. Perfect for any mounting setup. If you've been wondering how to start that perfect seat for your new build, look no further!

55 bucks and ready to go! Get one HERE.

Swappin' wet!

Yeah, we did the swap like usual even though some cloudy nastiness made it a little less fun. That and zero sleep made for a raucous day indeed. Here's a shot (stolen from Hellmerica Ryan) of the sun starting to peek out early on. Had to drag the awning out to keep things nice and clean for the discerning customers!

Custom Sizing available!!

Once again, our buddy Rene over at Primo's helmets has killed a lid for a customer! This one was a simple all-black liner and was sized to fit perfectly. If you have a smaller dome and have been bummed that the TROOP lineup was a little big for ya, send us a note and we'll get you hooked up! All sorts of colors and designs are available and Rene knows his stuff! He also looks good sharing a 5XL shirt with Travis. Just sayin...

Keeping the bizarre alive!

Our good buddy Steve Wright has opened up his online store for BLACK MASS clothing and the first of many designs are up for your viewing pleasure! Check him out and buy a tee or ten. Make sure you tell him we sent ya, so he doesn't voodoo us or anything strange like that!

Josh Kurpius rides a modern bike???

Yes he did, and he even wore a helmet! Our buddy Josh took our Troop on a whirlwind tour to Daytona recently and it looks like it did the job. If you've been under a rock and don't know him, check out the Kemosabe blog and check what he and the others up in the midwest are doing from time to time. Good stuff.

The Killer of Hippies is at it again!

Kutty over at Hippy Killer put the works to this nice little Sporty over the last few weeks and it came out just right! Worked our fairing in on it and fashioned a new tail section that rocks. Everything looks tight and right, and it's ready to hit the road!

And unless your pulse has lowered to near-dead levels, you better not forget the upcoming Hoedown! Check Kutty's site for details and don't let us catch you missin it!

Keep them in your thoughts!

Our friends over in Japan are OK for the time being, but we should all keep them in our thoughts until this giant hurdle has been cleared. This is life-changing stuff for an entire population, and we need to send as much good energy that way as possible right now. If you have more than good thoughts to send, please do. We pitched in, but won't preach that it's the right thing for everyone. If you choose to, search this link to find the charity that makes sense for you. Don't just give, give wisely and make it count!

We love when new stuff hits!!

Two new parts in the door today and we think you'll be just as stoked as we are! First up is the big daddy to the warbird jr. Poppa Bird is 6 1/4 wide x 4 3/4 tall and 1 3/4 deep. Sports a standard 1157 socket for either dual filament bulbs or LED replacement style jobbies. Chrome plastic housing and plastic lid with two mounting studs out the back. Been looking for the perfect old Warbird? Well, gone are the days of thinking that it takes a grand to get you one. These babies do the job at a fraction of the price!

Next up is the new Finger light. Small light with a big message! Tons of LED brightness in a 1 /78 width x 2 3/4 height package. Grab one of these before they follow in the bird jr. footsteps and disappear!

We also have a few warbird Jr. and OG Ally lights back in stock, but they'll probably be gone before you read this, so be quick!

EC has you COVERED!!!

That's right boys and girls, we just got restocked on all TROOP lids as well as the solid color JET helmets. Not only is there stuff for you to buy, but it's even better stuff! The TROOP lids now come with the new sizing that's been so successful with the MOTO helmets and they also include a goggle strap on the back!

As if that wasn't enough, we also got the first batch of FLAT BLACK Jet helmets in and they rock. We've moved away from the "soft feel" paint and to a standard flat paint that makes these perfect for striping up and keeps 'em cleaner longer too. Check out all the lids in the STORE and grab yours while they last!
