A custom bike is unique to the owner, and this is a pretty special thing! It means that no one else on the planet is going to have the same bike as you.
Most bikers would agree that their motorbike is an extension of their personality. So, a bike build is a great way of giving everyone a glimpse into the type of biker you are.
However, a lot of people are hesitant about customising their bikes because they fear this will destroy the resale value. There’s no need to fret though, as we appreciate all the time and money you’ve invested into your bike, and we factor this in during the valuation.
So, with that being said, let’s take a look at why so many people love to customise their motorbikes, as well as your options in this regard.
Why do people customise their motorbikes?
Custom motorbikes ensure the bike fits the rider. Whether you want to change the appearance of your motorbike or improve the way it operates, or both, you can make sure the motorbike is perfect for you and your needs.
Plus, having a custom motorbike is a status symbol for those in the biking community. It ensures that your bike is one-of-a-kind. No one else is going to be riding around with the exact same motorbike as you, and that’s special.
How do you customise a bike?
No matter what your available budget there are a number of different ways you can customise your motorbike. For example, you can spruce it up with a paint job. Chrome paint is highly popular at the moment.
Other options include changing your seat, customising your exhaust pipes, and adding heat to your grips. You can also change your foot pegs, add an engraving, beef up your sound system, and replace your windshield.
A lot of motorbike owners seek to improve their bikes by increasing horsepower and there are a number of different ways this can be achieved, for instance, increasing the air intake, upgrading the exhaust, re-flashing the ECU or plugging in an aftermarket tuner, tuning your carburetor, installing a new jet kit, and modifying your ignition.
Top bike builds of 2022
The best bike builds were on display at the Bike Shed London 2022 in May. There were more than 250 curated motorcycles for attendees to enjoy, so this is always a great opportunity for motorbikers to look at custom bikes and get ideas for their own.
