We technically opened the shop the day before yesterday, on July 1.
We didn’t really make a big hoopla about it for a couple of reasons.
One, we can’t have hordes of people in the store or in the shop at once because of social distancing requirements. And we just KNEW we’d get swamped if everyone and their sister knew we were open for sales and service yesterday. 😉 So, we announced being open to the public to our newsletter subscribers and Facebook community on Saturday. They told a few friends.
We also didn’t want to get legitimately overwhelmed on the first day. It’s been a flurry of activity after a lull of waiting on our end.
But, man, are we proud of what we’ve made! We’re not “done,” but you know what they say “perfection is the enemy of done.” And I’ve learned not to be a perfectionist on this venture.
I’ve been talking a lot about “we & us.” But Throttle Company Vintage Motorcycles is for you.
You’ll be able to bring your new-to-you vintage bike to us for a once over and let us help you get it on the road. You can get excited that you’ll finally be able to physically try on a women-owned and designed riding jacket all the way from California (shhh! I’ll officially be announcing who that is soon)! You’ll be able to hang out (socially distanced, of course) in the shade of our outdoor gantry space and talk shop or talk plants or talk whatever strikes your fancy.
We’re into what you’re into. And we made Throttle Company for you, the vintage and Royal Enfield enthusiast. Get started, get going, and start something old.
Some events of note if you’re not getting our newsletter or following us on social media (you should tho….)
July 10th- Throttle Co @ Farrow HD Downtown Re-Opening House 12-5 (491 West Broad Street)
July 17th- Throttle Co Bike Night @ The Wheelhouse* 6-9
“The Wheelhouse” is just a fancy name for our Phase One situation. We are currently entirely housed in the section of our building that will eventually become just our shop space. For now, we have combined our shop, sales office, showroom and retail space into this one space. We asked for names for the space, and someone suggested it because “we have everything under one roof.” I’ve been work-shopping it, do you like it?!
