Le Garage a Tasses is a French moped club born in 2002 and located in Treignat a small village of Central France.

It all started with a group a 3 friends passionate about vintage mopeds and collecting so many parts that they had to get out of their small personal garage.

After creating an association at the end of 2002 they were able to find a warehouse provided by the city.

In July 2003 they inaugurated their new garage.

New people quickly joined the club and they enjoyed their first group moped rides and break downs…

In the back of the museum they run a non profit moped shop open on Sundays from 2pm to 7pm where any moped owner can use the tools to maintain and fix their bikes or ask questions to some more experienced mechanics.
