for no particular reason we are going to have a sale on polini CP carburetors sunday/monday. this will benefit very few of you (especially since its 8pm sunday hehe) and therefore hopefully not make too much extra work for us. those constant deal hunters will be happy tho and all of you that have been waiting to try these amazing new carbs will finally have your chance, in the summer no less. lets take off hmm $30 off any CP carb which will bring some to as low as $100 except for the pricey 24mm CP, true bummer that one costs so much!! oh well. if you haven’t read up on these carbs do some research and you’ll find all you need to know. i just put a 17.5mm on my laguna today to check out. use the code “cp” to get your $30 off, till monday at midnite. i used a simple code so you wouldn’t have any problems mispelin it. spend saved money on a nice date, for your loved one or yourself, doesn’t matter to me.
before we get too distracted with anything else lets make an official note here that TREATLAND will be closed this friday as a bunch of us will be away in denver at the rally, find more info on this here i would guess, but i didn’t read it so i don’t know what you are actually going to find out. this also means you should get your orders in early this week so we can have them out before we leave. a few of us will still be in the kingdom shipping but please take it easy on us and order early in the week if you can. thank you in advance, the people of treatland.
another video from the tomahawk cup to check out for those of you that couldn’t make it up above and the continuing adventures of the TAT below
i think this is it for now, i’ve been in the warehouse workin all weekend – shipping, organizing, cleaning, n i am beat. time to get back to the virtual treatland for me, this concludes this episode, one job concluded another began, and so on, and so forth, forever unto thee kingdom, blessed treat gods. be on the lookout for some new parts n treats this week as we will almost have the full team back. willy is still out on the TAT, but we will get to see him in denver and make sure those blk blk rats haven’t corrupted him too much, hopefully just enough. oh by the way jack started working at treatland a few months ago.. you might know him from his UPS magnum scooter..hehe..

you know those holidays that everyone takes off and enjoys themselves outside in the sun? the ones where the banks close and USPS stops picking up and UPS even takes a day off? those are the days we usually get more work done than most other days at treats. with the doors shut we pretend to be closed for the day, but actually its madness within the treat lair. no memorial day holiday for us, so you will get your shipments quicker…how does that make you feel? i bet you feel pretty good, so go enjoy a nice cup of coffee and some sticky buns. we are still about 3 days behind on orders due to the sale which is a bummer, but we’re doin the best we can. in the future we can consider not having sales if you like? what do you think, 3 day delay on shipping for a week or no sales? tough choice huh? we’ll convene a committee have a meeting and think this one over. to begin to conclude this shipping update we are hoping to get caught up to weds evening by friday putting us around 2 days behind. I think i’m going to go in on sat and sun and do some shipping myself even as i have been stuck in the virtual land of treats for so long.. all these screens n keyboards, man i hope they unplug me and let me ship soon and leave my hal like state. i was human once. maybe if i beg them friday morning they will let me out to ship packages. conclusion of shipping update.
TAT riders, thanks alex for the photo!
its been a close call in the battle to see who can lead the pack in documenting the TAT whilst on the move but it seems like we have a winner!!! from now on plz refer to get blatzed for all your TAT updates along the way. as if tryin to ride the TAT wasn’t enough of a mission, have you ever tried to regularly update a blog??? now thats some serious shit. over the course of the coming months we will be including some words and photos from the TAT, but i do encourage all of you interested readers to continue to get blatzed tumblr and ohhh yes http://instagram.com/get_blatzed too!!!!! we are super excited to be a part of adventures like this, nothin better than sleepin outside in the dirt for months and wandering the dirt roads of the world, oh do i miss it.
you’ll be able to see things like willy from treats makin a pot of coffee on the side of the road while using his camping stove to heat up a bearing and rebuild a hobbit engine!! wtf!!! this is life!!!
my last update, sure to please long time followers of the kingdom is this news piece from today i received from our one and only stoney. for sure it wouldn’t have been the first time i’d seen stoney running barefoot in the streets. or the word “frenzy” in the same paragraph with stoney for that matter. how anyone makes it in the news so much i don’t know, must be a special one.
there’s a ton of new parts at the store, new shipments, etc but we are too busy shipping so they will wait till next week to make an appearance. sorry!

in case you forget monday 5/26 ups and usps are closed for memorial day, which means all their shipments get pushed back a day usually?? i think??? anyway we are still going to be shipping on monday, but shipments will go out tues when usps and ups resume their pickups. at the moment its 143pm on friday and everyone in shipping is blazing away trying to get as many of this weeks shipments out the door as possible.
rodney on the race relic derbi at tomahawk cup 2014
rodney n I got to go to the tomahawk cup last weekend n see all the madness n racer dudes. i think there were around 151 bikes (honest™) and tonsss of people from all over the US. it was awesome to be there for the inaugural year.. and to know it is going to be a yearly event now. we were one of the sponsors for 2014, and after witnessing what we did out there in the sun drenched wind blown deserts the people of the independent kingdom of treatland decided to quadruple their donation to the event for 2015 and onwards to ensure that the tomahawk cup continues indefinitely and that there isn’t as much financial strain on the organizers of the event as everyone involved spent a ton of cash out of their own pockets to make this a gigantic FREE event. a huge huge thanks to everyone that put this together, so cool to see what you all accomplished. thank you for donating all that time and cash! insane! great work finks, tomahawk, lb mopeds, bullies, choke, scoot tv, and more. OH and jimmy requests it is moved by one week so he can come next year as he has a moto race that weekend every year. will the tomahawk gods have mercy on him?? or not?? lets see! my recommendation to you is to start planning now for tomahawk 2015!!! awesome to see you all too!!
i’ll have more photos and info from the tomahawk cup sometime soon, once someone sends it to me. so send it to me, plz.
although it seems like just yesterday i was watching the little gps blips of the pinball run 2013 its already time for the pinball run 2014!! pinball run II the adventures of tom sawyer will be departing from Minneapolis on 9/1 and heading down the mississippi to new orleans by the 5th. for more info check it all out on the pinball run site. for sure check out this video of the first pinball run as well —
great warm ups for some things we have in mind hehe
jimmy rodney and i got our tickets to come to denver for the rally in june, see ya there!!!!
thats all for now, xoxo, continue treating

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.
