Its a hive of activity at the Temple again! We’ve been beating back journalists and their photographers, trying to move things on in the Hurricane front, deciding the next Progeny bike and to top it off sold Pup no.2 already!
And in our spare time….we have been getting our quarterly newsletter ready to rock and roll. Now, we cant say we are big fans of newsletters that fill your inbox up everyday with boring, old and irrelevant news. We are however, fans of being offered unreleased and up to date news and pictures and more importantly we are even bigger fans of getting what we call ‘OEM’s little somethings’ that will feature in someway in every newsletter…..interested? Even we are! If your not happy its only a click to unsubscribe, but you wont, promise!

Back from Beaulieu! A weekend of beer, bikes, hotrods and good company. We made loads of new friends and congrats to the AMD crew and ESN events team who organised the best turnout of custom motorcycles we have seen to date!
And…to top it off we came a very respective 4th place in the freestyle class which we are dead chuffed with considering the Pups our first motorcycle and the talent and high calibre of competition we were up against was phenomenal!
Here is the best in show winner, ‘Demon Speed’ by builders Abnormal Cycles; those pesky italians have style by the lorry load!
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!
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…..
Dirtquake?? Hell yes were going! Get yourself to Coventry this saturday for Sideburns Dirtquake event of the year held at Brandon Speedway stadium, its a kinda run what ya brung idea, that means choppers, bobber, trackers, scooters, you name it and you can fly round the stadium on it! Were honored to be there offering our wares (15% show discount!!) and were taking the completed Pup with us to show to all you good folks!
See you there!
