So Long 2011, We Barely Knew Ya!

This was a big year in a lot of ways. Crappy economy brought to us by crappy government and crappier scheisters in the halls of power. Offsetting that was the never-ending stream of good times with like-minded folks on two wheels. We got to get to the road and see a ton of the people who keep us going and for that, we are forever grateful. No matter how much you think you get from this wacky internet crap, the truth is that there is nothing better than hitting the pavement with real folks.

Here's to a safe celebration tonight, and a great start to 2012. Get your fun in while you can, because somebody says this may be the last chance we have!

Happy Holidays!

Hope everyone has a great end of the year holiday time! Don't do anything we wouldn't do. Shipping here at the ranch will be down from today through next Tuesday, the 27th. You can still shop the store, but delivery will be a little delayed while we enjoy ourselves for a bit. 

Don't forget the End of Days sale still going on. Tons of stuff on sale and it's all going quick! 

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Ok, Ok, We hear ya!

We had a ton of folks hit us up about our Black Friday sale wishing we'd extend it. We don't like to bow to pressure, but with the future in doubt, we figured it'd be our civil duty to make sure everyone has one last chance to hit the road on two wheels. SO... without further ado, we present EC's END OF DAYS SALE! We'll keep this one going now until the end of the year, but after 2012 hits, it's every man/chick for themselves!
Oh yeah, remember that the sale price won't show up on products until you add them to your cart, so check your cart for the savings! Up to 30% off once again on the parts you need!

I Miss These...

Meester Holt puts out a good rag and puts together a damn good time to show you when he does! Go check out the party if you're in the area for sure.

Chicks dig Troops too!

As shown by Gray's ol' lady Leslie. She puts hers to the test on the regular!

Hey Ma, we're on TV!

Our good buddy Gavin gets to hang with the late set on the Red Eye show from time to time. This go-round, he was seen sporting our very own Grim Reaper tee! He even did some suggestive titty twisting at the wheels of the bike to get the crowd going! The Wall Street Journal even had a shot of the gang. Thanks a ton Gavin!

It's all in the presentation baby!

Crappy news clipping pic, but you get the idea!

And Gavin in his native element

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Oh yeah, it's on once again!

And we'll be there with bells on! Happy to support such a great show. Go get all the info here, and tell your boss he'll be without ya for a while next June!

From the Horse's Mouth!

So everyone is on the same page, here's the news with regards to TT&Co. parts.

The Troop helmets are being discontinued according to everything I'm being told and can understand. Also, since the wonderful economy of Japan and our ever-sinking US dollar are colliding to make the last batch of lids around 300 bucks retail, we're not bringing any more over. Sorry, that's not value the way we define it here. SO...

There are a few of the Troop1s and 2s left and a smattering of MOTOs lying around too. We're not putting them up on the site, so if you want one of the LAST ones, email us with your hat size and address to ship to, and we'll see what we can do. Email to


Unless the world changes drastically in the next few days, we won't be seeing these anymore.

As for the other parts, they suffer the same BS story of how the exchange rate has driven prices up over 70%. We don't like price increases, so we aren't going to be doing this song and dance here. What you see on the STORE is what there is pretty much, although if you're jonesing for something that says it's out of stock, give us a shout and we'll verify. Again, it'll be a "once and done" kind of thing, so be prepared to pick up whatever you've been drooling over now!

Lots of other big things cooking around the shop, so keep tuned in and we'll update you as we get nearer to completion!

Thanks as always from the EC team.

SHOW CLASS MAG #3 is out!

That's right boys and girls, go get yours any way you can, before they're gone. Tim and the boys do it right and there's no excuse to miss out on what they have going on. As a matter of fact, but a sub and a shirt and then more shirts and then just throw them some money so they can keep this thing going!


Somebody buy us some of these shirts. They rule. Period.

No Class Rats!

That's right, Carlos from the No Class Rats shows love and rocks the Troop! Do you? Better get one quick, before they're all gone!

The New Phone Books Are Here!!! Again...

Actually, it's the new Street Chopper mag and it's off the charts. Not only does it have our very own 65 pan in it, but also a cadre of other good friends' rides. You can check out Jeff's knuckle and David's shovel along with Dave from SpeedMetal's knuck too! Add to that our old friend Jim's Triumph and an interview with Walt, and it pretty much fills out everything you need for quality reading these days.

Big Thanks go out to the esteemed Mr. Holt for keeping this rag on the up-and-up. Even bigger thanks for putting one of our shop's bikes on the pages. You rule sir!

So go out and get your copy wherever you can find them before they're all gone!

Love in Brazil!

Diego showing us some love and showing off that Troop and headlight / bracket combo. Good stuff!

The 2011 Running of the Gypsies!

That's right boys and girls, good ol' Walt's at it again! The 5th annual running of the Gypsies is happening this weekend rain or shine. Shit, the rain brings more amazing stories than sunshine any day, so get out there and show 'em what you're made of. If you're the type that likes to have details for your trips, go check out the GR SITE and get your brain filled with all the info you can handle. Great people throwing it, and great people coming, so don't miss out!

Positive thoughts going out...

To all the folks out east as the storm hits. Hang in there and here's to hoping it passes without much issue.

The Future...

Next couple of builds coming from the shop. Well... when we get the new shop built at least!

Nice little '56 runner -

And a shovel lump that needs new bones -

Drawing up some ideas and we'll see where they end up!

Just when you thought it was safe!

You just can't get away from California. It's everywhere. Found this set of tins done by your friendly neighborhood Harpoon staring at me while scrounging for parts. It's for sale on the roller...

Updates from the road...

Hey all, sorry for the radio outage around here lately. We're firmly planted in Colorado for the time being and due to some unforeseen issues in Craze's family, we'll be here for a while. This means we most likely won't see you guys out on the New York leg of the trip. Still a slight chance to ride out for the GR, but we'll have to see how that plays out.

In the meantime, here's some photos to keep you busy!

Got to finally meet Masa from MCPeckers in Japan. Walked in to the local indy and there he was. Who knew?

His shovel chop is a beaut. Check the twisted legs on that springer. The man puts a lot of time and energy into his creations for sure. 

Go check out his stuff!

Tonight! Be there!!!

We're glad to lend a hand in sponsoring this year's Salt Flat Social. Andy and the gang are really good people, and if that weren't a good enough reason, rumor has it, there's food, drink and music to go along with the motorcycle mayhem. We're bummed we're in Sturgis, but you can be happy and drag yourself on over to the flats and have a blast!

Photo thievery!

I like to think that since I'm usually busting too much ass at the shows we venture out to, that I can take the liberty to snatch photos from those who do a much better job at it than I do... sound good? Don't care. This time, our buddy Josh Kurpius is the victim, and here's a few from him that show off the MN trip. Check him out over at the LODGE.

The FMA boys were there

Got to meet Hans and he even picked up a Troop!

It rained quite a bit, and other than the wind at the first show, didn't much care since it knocked the heat down.

Joe and Polgreen. Tons of good folks at this one.

Totally spaced at the Bearded Lady and forgot about the dang pig trophies... should've entered the pan!

STURGIS, our home for the week!

We've planted stakes in Sturgis out at the Broken Spoke for the week and will be trying to stay sane in this sea of leather and bandanas. Help us get by and hit us up if you're in the area! We have plenty of extra space at the site too, for any of you that are still looking for tent camping sites and don't want to shell out the dough. I think you just have to buy a wristband for the campground and you can set up in our spot. Shoot us a mail at and we'll get you sorted!

Back in Business!!!

Alright gang, last week's move and inventory is complete, and everyone's orders are out the door. Thanks for the patience! We'll be dropping everything into the new shop sometime before the sun burns out and hopefully have a ton of good news regarding new parts and operations before too long as well! Onward and upward for sure.

Now get on your horse and come out to drink a beer at Sturgis with us!

Good Times!

You can't beat good Mexican food with good friends wearing Panda masks. I mean, really. Does it get any better???

If you see Wompy around, ask him about the video that got deleted...

Inventory and Shipping UPDATE!!

Hey gang, it's that time of year again, where we have to get a stock check done, so for the next 7 days, we won't be shipping. We're also moving the shop, so we're trying to get it all in at once! Orders placed after 1pm today will ship on the 3rd of August. As usual, if you have any questions about product or availability, just shoot us an email at

See ya out there!

Out with the old, and in with the... old??

Just got done out in Minnesota and hit the road back to South Dakota. Great weekend and great people again for sure! We've got some last-minute cleaning up to do in California the rest of this week, and then it's back to Sturgis for some good times. Been great putting faces to names of people we've met online or sent orders to and catching up with friends we don't see often enough! Here's a couple shots of the journey so far.

Biltwell lids pleased the crowd in Denver-

A cool knife prize pleased Show Class Tim in Minneapolis...

Getting this care package from the Biltwell crew pleased me when it finally caught up to us! Yes, that's limited edition artwork and no, you can't have it!

A grip of bikes packed into the Heavy shop in St Paul to escape the torrential downpour.

On the road once more...

Pretty cool views out in America -

And to top it all off, this guy stopped by to show his pop's biz card from way back and to let us know how much he dug the pan. His old man made that fender back in the day! The good times just keep on rolling in!

Friday, July 22, 2011

This Weekend - Go to these!!!

We're here, where are you? Get your butt out the door and hit these two great events for sure!

First up -

And the day after...

So come swig a few and shoot the shit with the gang from Heavy, FMA, Death Science, and a few of us other 'tards!

A Note from Sweden...

Our buddy Magnus sends us these shots of a brand-spakin' new LoPro seat on his Sporty. He ordered this puppy on the 11th of July and already has it on the bike. Post office must have gotten a kick in the ass somewhere along the line. That and he got lucky and the daily shipments hadn't gone out yet when he ordered. Ha! Thanks for the shots Magnus, bike looks great for sure!

Love is...

Having your customers post up stickers in their workplace. Especially when it's the Spearmint Rhino in LA! Thanks Sid!

Show Class Mag #2 On sale now!!

You heard right. The boys over at Show Class have put issue 2 up for grabs, so get yours before they're all gone! Great mag and great bunch of cats putting it together. CHECK 'EM OUT.

Thursday, July 14, 2011

What's that? Why Yes! It is on!

That's right, the Slab City Riot is once again happening in the middle of nowheresville California this November. The boys over at Biltwell will most assuredly outdo themselves yet again, and hopefully, I'll be in a better mood this go-round. It will be a sort of homecoming for EC, as we come off our summer tour to plant stakes in the slab for a week or two. That's right, we plan on having the rig there early, so stay tuned for some hijinks if you wanna hit the party early!
