So you get a new motor bike that is just like thousands of others on the road. It’s the same color and has stock rims, tires and a stock paint job. What can you do to make it an original piece of artwork that describes it’s owner and is a one of a kind motor bike?
Most anything you change to customize your bike can be done by the regular old Joe with a handful of tools. It’s very simple work to achieve your own style.
Remember the big fad of choppers in the 70′s? If you like that style, it is simple to change out a few things and have the ape-hanger look. You change out the front tire and rim to a larger one and change the handle bars to the longer, higher chopper style and you are on the road. Putting a big fat wide slick tire on the back looks good with this style too.
How about the leather and chromed out look? Leather saddle bags and handle bar tassels are easy to put on and chrome is soooo cool. Chrome pegs, exhaust system, breathers and any other accessories you can put on is flashy, but remember to keep them clean and shiny to keep the look fresh. These also go good with a nice custom paint job on the tank and fenders. Flames are cool. You can get a lot of designs in any color you want. The more exotic paint jobs are really chick magnets though. The tigers, lions and demons are so neat. Fire breathing animals and demons really catch the eye as you are riding down the road. Oh, and with these, the chrome lions or other designs on the front fender with the red led eyes that light up when you turn the headlights on are the best. There are also paint jobs to be noticed that aren’t so radical. Some of these have paint with a lot of pearl and metal flake in them like marine paint. A new look is the paint that changes color in the sunlight and also looks like different colors when you look at it from different angles.
And last, but definitely not least, different seats make a huge change in the look and the ride. Many custom seats have plenty of room for the rider and the passenger. Want your chick to hand on to you? Get a seat that is really small in the back for the passenger and make sure you gun it when you take off. The chick on the back will definitely hold on to you tight.
