30/04/2012 – And were back!……

Were back from the show! Still on cloud 9 from the fantastic responce and feedback from people concerning the Pup and OEM. It makes all those long days and nights locked in our temple worth it 100x over. We would like to say a HUGE thankyou to everyone who gave me their time to explain what we are doing, aswell as the show organisers for a truley superb setup. We wouldent have been there if it hadent been for Barleycorn engineering (http://www.barleycorn.co.uk/) who supply top notch stainless motorcycle parts and thanks also to Duncan who remakes welbikes, have a look! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Welbike-paratroopers-folding-motorcycle-ww2-SOE-Excelsior-villiers-junior-/190650103065

Pictures of the show are currently being compiled into an album aswell as professional photography of our clothes and bike for a BIG website update including (sharp intake of breath) our Online Emporium, where our british made, motorcycle inspired Tees and specially sourced Vintage wear can be viewed and purchased!

Thanks again everyone!

21/04/12 – Start Pinning!

 

At OEM we cant say that we are a regular users of our personal social networking pages etc, but using these as tools to reach people and connecting with them from all over the world to tell them about Old Empire and showing people what we are doing is a big buzz. Pinterest is something that we immeadiatly liked, due to the fact that it connects people via the images that they ‘pin’ to there own virtual boards rather than text or requests. These images are shared amongst the rest of the community so people can see what inspires or what you are all about! So click below and have a looksie, you wont be disappointed and remember to follow OEM’s very own Pinboard!

21/04/12 – Getting there…

 

So our first show is less than a week away and were still waiting the hardchromers for the fork stancions! Although we planned way ahead with everything, its going to be down to the line as usual! Our first attire collection will be finished the day before we leave so we are expecting some late nights this week, dont judge us if were not looking quite as dapper as we should on the first day at the show! However we can assure you that the very first Pup will be on form!

16/04/12 – Out for the day……

 

We are all set for our very first outing end of the month! Carole nash international classic bike show, Staffordshire show ground, 28th and 29th of april, £12 per adult ticket for the day. A good oppotunity if you fancy seeing Pup numero uno up close and personal as she is attending! Also on show and available for those interested in the oem cause are our first batch of oem attire! See you there, just head for the emblem!
