Moped Wiki temporarily in read only mode

The Moped Wiki is temporarily in read only mode while I work on a major update. Editing will remain disabled until I launch this update, which will include a much improved visual editor. I'm in the final stages of the work now, and hope to launch it sometime in February 2021. Sorry for an inconvenience this may cause, but this new editor is going to be worth it. For a preview of the visual editor and additional updates please follow this thread in the forum.

Two new Moped Army branches!

I’m excited to share that we have two new official branches! Please welcome Graveyard Shifters (Maryland) and Wizards (Lancaster, PA) as official branches of the Moped Army. Both of these clubs have been around for a while now and will be great additions to the Moped Army.

Please welcome them — congrats everyone!

CBBG 11: Major Chad to Ground Control

Really excited that this marks the ELEVENTH Annual Moped Community Build and Gather (CBBG) will be held the weekend of December 11th through the 13th, 2020 at broadcast from Quarterkick in Kalamazoo, MI.

This has been a challenging year for all of us. It pains me to not be able to host you all in my shop and provide knowledge and access to equipment many don't have in the daily. I've chosen an online format this year to help keep everyone safe. I'll add pins to the map of ask virtual attendees this year in a special designated color. This event helps me make improvements and sustain costs incurred by having a shop this large.

The donations received greatly help in promoting and encouraging attendance every year and at greatly appreciated.

People from all over the country will congregate online as they come to show off their personal Bilson spaces and shops with sandblast, powdercoat, welding, rebuild engines and build up bikes.

There will be shirts, pins, and one raffle ticket with registration. There will be a rare moped raffled off as well as many performance parts and other moped and non moped related items. All purchases will be shipped to registered address. Raffle prizes will be shipped to winners or codes for prizes will be emailed depending on what is won.

This event is open to the entire moped community world wide. Build engines, build mopeds, build friendships, but building walls is discouraged unless they are for your build space. Chad will do his best to accommodate as many people as possible virtually at the shop.

This year's event I'll be raffling off a rare completely rebuilt and powdercoated Rizzato Atala Master 50 moped.

Feel free to invite anyone to join us!

2020 new branch applications

I know it's been a weird year, with all of the rallies cancelled and the pandemic turning our lives upside down. Your club probably planned to rally hard all summer before applying to be a branch, meeting lots of new people and gaining legendary status for your wrenching and riding skills. That would have been great, but 2020 had other plans.

Don't let that stop you from applying to be a branch of the Moped Army. We'd love to hear about your club, get to know you virtually, and better understand how you'd represent the Moped Army in your area. Hit up the application page for more info and be sure to submit before the end of the month.
