28/05/2012 – OEM gone viral….

 

Another busy weekend at the temple! Firstly a weekend of filming means we are moving tantalising close to having our teaser film edited so all you good folks can see and hear OEM’s first motorcycle in all its glory….

Head to our gallery for snaps from the day and check the Pup gallery as we updated with some rather nice photos too!

The House of Pipes introduces OEM our idea and the Pup to the worldwide web! Cheers lads!

25/05/2012 – We’re live!

 

Okay Folks! We pleased to announce the website update is finito!
The first of our Progeny motorcycles is finished, just tweaking a few components to get her just right!

The spec page with detailed photos both on the page with links to our latest photo shoot for the Pup and our Attire! http://www.oldempiremotorcycles.com/motorcycles/oem-progeny/the-pup/

Speaking of Attire….. the Eshop is officially open! http://www.oldempiremotorcycles.com/attire/

And…..the first 10 hockney or classic tees sold get a free yet unreleased enamel OEM pin badge AND one of our flyers with ANOTHER badge attached, which we usually reserve for shows!

We have only a small range initially but every item is specially sourced or designed at OEM. All of the work on the shirts is done here in blighty and we are in the process of beginning a donation scheme with a UK organisation that encourages, funds and educates young British people about the future of British buisness, Keep posted!

21/05/12 – All Quaked out….

Back from Dirtquake! A MASSIVE thankyou to the sideburn boys for the event of the year so far in our books! Amazing people, motorcycles and what an event! Who would have thought a rigid classic trumph with huge over girders could be so lithe and agile around a dirt track! Respect has to go to a fellow enfield nut who did rather well on his own bullet (complete with a cream and pink jumpsuit) who even had enough effort to help hoof the Pup back into the trailer at the end of the day! Gracias Chris!

On our return from Dirtquake, I just could not get out of my head a modern Ducati based entrant to the next dirtquake (hopefully), or a similar event, we are talking tall grasstracker knobbly wheels front and back, minimal trellis (ish) frame, tiny tank, seat hung on the top tube, rigid front and back, mountain bike front brake some low clean bars and thats it! These are just scribbles but we could have something here we thinks…..
