i received a coded message from an inside contact at treatland this morning which read — get your orders in early this week!! we’ll be closed this friday may 16th and monday may 18th for shipping and any in-store type business as we will be away at the tomahawk cup. this will put us a little behind.. so make sure you get your orders in early in the week if you can so they ship before we close for a few days.
if you don’t know about the tomahawk cup.. go read up
at the tomahawk cup site
at moped army
and check out some updates on the tomahawk tuning blog while you are at it. and oh yeah! a video even!
Its super inspiring to see what everyone involved in the tomahawk cup has done to make this event happen. this should be a yearly event from now on, purely brought to life independently by the US moped community. incredible!
me, rodney and jack will be at the tomahawk cup. jimmy is on some off road motorcycle race. david is going to be secretly shipping your orders back at treatland even though we are technically closed and willy is leaving on thursday for the trans america trail ride which starts next week.
sneak preview of willys tat derbi bike from early april.
for those of you sad souls that are still clueless i’m going to have to write about it again i guess, man, and i thought this was going to be a relaxing saturday morning. oh well. best thing for you to do is first go read up here on the trans america trail site. easiest thing to do is download the whole site and then do a find and replace switching the word “motorcycle” for “moped”, now upload the site again and you can read it and understand what is going on. got that? good, easy.
I think currently there’s about 10-15 people going on the whole ride and some people joining up for sections here and there. if this excites you and makes you want to give money away then you can go to the donation page for the moped TAT now.
if you feel like you want to join up along the way or let them know they can come over for dinner check out the moped TAT facebook page or maybe you just want to tell them how stupid they are and that they will never make it and other insults, this would be the perfect place for that.
for those of you who missed it in april together with the shred shed east we set up these lil keychain spark plug holders as a fund raiser, briskly raising a cool $875 or something like that to further fund the mission and add to the funds we have already provided for this endeavor.
keep an eye out across the country for the TAT bus which will be moving along near the trail to help out and carry all the junk they will need along the way. its got a huge flat screen tv in it with leather couches, a bunch of computer work stations for the dudes to take care of all their business stuff and a gourmet stainless steel kitchen (inc wood fire pizza oven).
thats all for TAT news for now. willy’s bike is leaving mon on a pallet to denver and we’ll be receiving updates throughout the next 7 weeks which will be reported here.
in other exciting news we recently received a new part from motomatic. we had been missing motomatic parts for awhile so it was just in time that we received the new mobylette engine mount puller/installer tool from em. nice work nate!
oh and one more thing i forgot related to shipping… since its summer now we are super super busy. if you have an order that you place over the weekend and you want it to go out monday, order friday night or saturday morning. we ship all the orders out in the order they come in.. so monday we ship friday evening, sat, sun and mon AM. of course since we are mere mortals we only make it to sundays orders by monday afternoon when we close. therefore hot tip # 2 order friday night or sat am for an order you want to go out monday AM. as always every single part marked “here now” on our site is in stock in our warehouse right in front of us. this is how it has always been and always will be in treatland.
i could go on.. and on.. and on.. but thats it for now. everyone at the shop has started adding some photos every now and then to the treatland instagram, usually we are super super busy working, but we’re trying to make some time to get everyone some views of what is going on behind the scenes in treatland. ah what a wonderful land.
