Pretty “Barra Bonita” – PNT-TT
Last holiday was marked by the fourth edition of Pé na Tábua TT (Tira Teima) in Barra Bonita. The event, organized by Tiago Songa, his brother and a group of self-sacrificing old motorcycle enthusiasts, is turning into one of the most entertaining encounters of restorers and motorcycles collectors. Fun and rich in spectacular machines, wide smiles and lots of friendship. Barra Bonita, located on the banks of the Tietê River, in the west of the State of São Paulo is very far, say some. Perhaps it is, perhaps not, but the distance from big cities helps to keep it as a family event, attracts the local people, from nearby cities, the tourists looking for the navigable part of Tietê river, but mainly, some of the main collectors of the country and Its rare motorcycles.
The basis of the event is the idea led by Tiago Songa and his troupe, who started a fun challenge of vintage cars years ago, prompting collectors to put their jewelry in a competition. Informal, fun, chalanges includes speed, regularity and, in the case of cars, a “slower” competition. It turns out that, many of those who like old cars also like old motorcycles. Thus, in a prior event “only for classic cars” they creat the first motorcycle challenge, the TT, or “Tira Teima”. The success was so great that already in the second year it was necessary to separate the car and motorcycle themes.
Since its second edition, already separated from the cars, the PNT-TT chooses a theme, a brand to be honored, encouraging collectors to bring to the eyes of the public rare copies, mostly belonging to closed private collections.
This year the honored brand was the German Zundapp, which completes 100 years since its founding in 1917.
To celebrate the date Motostory – The History of the Motorcycle in Brazil – was also there, reinforcing the importance of recovering the memory of the characters who helped to build our market. Sport characters were once again remembered and had their images displayed both in the pavilion and on the track.
We also made the preview of the Motostory Collection, with the shirts with prints of Motorcycle Idols, Hall of Fame, and the Antique Ads line, as well as sweatshirts and caps.
Another highlight of the Motostory Collection is the women’s product line, specially created to meet the growing demand of women: fashion having motorcycles as a theme. Initially the women’s collection features baby look t-shirts, shoulder drop and regatão, plus the sweatshirt to warm the winter that begins today. Soon new models will be presented designed exclusively for women.
They are quality products, designed and made especially for the Motostory Collection. The complete line will soon be on sale through E-Commerce www.motostoryshop.com.br (still under construction), also in some stores and events.
In addition to the clothing, Motostory also exhibited the 1974 Montesa Cota 247 with which Carlão Coachman, one of the Trial pioneers in Brazil, practiced his favorite sport.
