There’s just something special about riding a motorcycle on the open road here in Phoenix, AZ. There’s nothing like it. You feel both free and rebellious at the same time. And whether you wear a 3-piece suit or jeans to your job, when you ride, you want your motorcycle to reflect the real you.
If you’ve seen shows like “American Chopper,” or regularly read motorcycle magazines, it might seem like customizing your motorcycle is way beyond your budget. But the fact is, there are some simple, cost-effective ways you can personalize the look of your bike that won’t break the bank.
We’ve found five ideas to get you on your way to the sweet ride you’ve always dreamed of:
1.Powder coating: We’re partial to powder coating here at Steel Advantage. It comes in a huge range of colors and because of that, you can take your bike from factory standard to unique by switching up the shade of the frame, wheels, and just about any of the metal parts.
2. Chrome: Chrome, that shiny metal that can make your motorcycle really stand out. We don’t apply chrome plating to metal, but there are many companies who manufacture aftermarket motorcycle parts like grips, and brake handles.
3. Exhaust system: Besides chrome plated exhaust pipes, you can completely change out the entire exhaust system, giving your exhaust pipes a completely unique look and changing the noise level of your motorcycle. However, make sure you check your owner’s manual because replacing the exhaust system can affect how your bike performs.
4. Seat: Why keep the boring seat that came with your motorcycle when you can find one or have one made that reflects your personality? From superhero emblems to stitched leather and everything in between, switching out your bike’s seat is a great way to customize your motorcycle.
5. Lights: You can light up a single part of your motorcycle, like the engine, or the wheels, or you can light up multiple parts by purchasing LED Light kits and installing them where they’re hidden and will illuminate the parts of your bike that you want to be lit up.
Of course, there are a lot more ways you can customize your motorcycle, but the 5 ideas above should be enough to get you on the road to a truly awesome bike. And of course, custom powder coating one or more of the metal parts on your bike is a great start so you can head out to the Phoenix, Arizona highways and beyond in style.
