Posted on

Whether you’re an experienced rider or you’ve just purchased your first bike, you may be thinking about ways that you can transform your motorcycle into something truly unique. From your wheels to your headlights to your exhaust pipes, the options for customizing your bike are nearly unlimited. In a previous post, we covered three ways that you can make your bike stand alone as a unique work of art. In today’s post, we’ll continue to explore that same topic, providing you with even more ideas for tricking out your bike.

Custom Paint Job

If you’re really looking for a way to distinguish your bike from everyone else’s, then a custom paint job should be one of the first items on your to-do list. Pick your favorite scenery, superhero, movie, or color scheme and show it off to the world! Whether you’re a diehard Star Wars fan or you love the way that deep blue and vibrant white tones mix together, everyone can find a paint job they love. While a custom paint job is one of the more expensive investments available for motorcycle owners, you’ll love having a bike that you can truthfully claim is one-of-a-kind.

If you’d like to customize your bike’s appearance but you don’t have the money to invest in a custom paint job, then you may want to consider decals or wraps. While decals and wraps don’t provide you with the flexibility and versatility of a custom paint job, they can add an interesting and unique touch to your bike.

New Tires

Have you ever experienced the remarkable difference that new tires make after they replace nearly or completely bald tires? We’re willing to bet that you have, and replacing your motorcycle’s tires will similarly improve your bike’s performance. In addition to providing you with exceptional traction, handling, and gas mileage, new tires will provide your bike with a clean and like-new appearance.

Custom Handlebars

Even if you enjoy your current set of handlebars, a new set of custom handlebars can give your bike a unique and eye-catching appearance. From rabbit ear handlebars to zero-drag handlebars, you’re sure to find a style that matches the overall aesthetic appearance of your bike. You may even find yourself surprised at how worn out and tired your old handlebars are once the new ones are installed! If you’re investing in new handlebars, then you may want to think about replacing your grips as well. Aftermarket grips and brake clutches can be found in a variety of styles and colors, so try to pick something out that perfectly matches your slick new handlebars and paint job!

Lighting

If you’re a fan of riding your motorcycle late at night, then you may want to consider investing in a pair of motorcycle lights for your wheels. While your fellow travelers won’t be able to see your customized bike during late-night rides, custom motorcycle lights will be even more eye-catching to anyone who happens to be nearby. You can purchase single-color lights in beautiful shades of your favorite colors, and you can even find flashing and color-shifting lights if you want to really make your bike look like it’s from the future. Safety is always a concern when riding at night, and you can almost guarantee that everyone on the road will see you when you outfit your bike with vivid custom lights.

In certain areas, vehicle lighting is restricted and reserved for emergency vehicles only. In the United Kingdom, for instance, blue lights are only permitted for use by emergency vehicles. Your area may have regulations in place as well, so be sure to contact the authorities in your area before you install your new lights.

Stay tuned for future posts where we’ll continue to provide you with bike customization ideas. If you’re feeling inspired and ready to customize your bike, head over to RC Components’ online store!
