We're in the final stretch of opening the Standard Motorcycle Co-op garage and thought a great way to kick everything off was with some awesome events and pre-parties that all lead up to the Cafe Moto Orlando Revival Rally, which will take place here at Standard at the end of June!
SO, FIRST UP IS THE STANDARD BAZAAR!
Got a garage full of motorcycle parts? How about some cool old car parts? Bring em! What about records, furniture or other unique items? All you need to do is pre-register (form below) and show up at 9AM on the 23rd with your goods and tables and/or tents to display them. *Vendors will receive a 10x10 space on the pavement, limit 20 spaces
THE GARAGE WILL BE OPEN WITH SOME GREAT STUFF GOING ONALL DAY TOO!
We'll have craft-brewed coffee and fresh baked goods from Vita Luna Cafe as well as Food trucks for those looking for something a bit more substantial. In the shop, we'll be working on bikes as well as have Marlowe from Rusted Jalopy performing live sheet-metal fabrication. We've also have Brandon the Barber, with his chair cutting hair makin' fades!
The daytime event shuts down at 4PM and we'll re-open at 8PM for an after-party (subject to capacity, $5 cover) with LIVE Blues & Jazz with Eugene Snowden and his Ten Pints of Truth. And to satisfy your thirst, we'll have PBR on tap along with craft cocktails from The Courtesy Bar!
SO WHY THE RAD PARTY AND EVENTS SCHEDULE?
Standard Motorcycle Co., while it is a co-op motorcycle garage in the larger scheme of things it's a community platform. Our idea is to host unique and fun events on a regular basis bringing people from all walks of creative culture in Orlando here.
Through art shows, movie and game nights, weekly rides, BBQ's along with a host of other things our aim is to bring the creative community together and with any luck...get some more people riding and wrenching on motorcycles!
WE'RE ALSO LAUNCHING A KICKSTARTER THE DAY OF THE EVENT!
We've put our blood sweat and tears into this space. Virtually everything is hand-built and we still have a way's to go. Additional build-out needs to be done, we need equipment for the garage and in sticking to our bohemian philosophy of working together, we're asking the community to chip in and help us get the doors open.
From the donation based craft coffee bar we'll have setup, to the similar donation based nut and bolt and consumables bar for bike builders, our goal is to fund the shop and keep it as accessible as possible without unrealistic members fees. Jason Paul Michaels, his wife Leticia Cline Michaels and the SMC Crew want to create something that gives back to the industry and helps it grow.
So come out and join us, it's the beginning of something great for fuel culture in Orlando!
