Cruiser Accessories

 Nothing beats the style of a classic cruiser motorcycle.  With their sleek lines, powerful engines, and reclined seating position, a cruiser is the perfect way to cross entire continents in comfort and style.  Of course, the temptation when you get a cruiser, whether it is a Harley Davidson Softail or a Yamaha Dragstar is to pile on the whole options list, stacking it high with as much chrome as it can carry, and really go to town on leather and tassels, however less really is more when it comes to customizing your bike, and by only adding a subtle selection of extras, you can make your bike look absolutely fantastic with a minimum of effort. 

Cruiser accessories are some of the most diverse items available for motorcycle owners, and thanks to the immense popularity of this style of bike, it is possible to replace just about any stock part on your bike with a more ornate custom alternative. 

Whether you are looking for a lightweight stripped down street racer look, want to go the whole hog with more chrome, or simply want to add a few personal touches, there are cruiser accessories available that will fill your needs exactly. 

One of the most popular add-ons for any cruising bike is a set of panniers.  You can choose from either solid metal or classic leather for these bags, and they will generally give you enough space to carry a few essentials for a weekend away, or carry all your stuff to work.  Most people choose to get a set of black leather bags with subtle stud detailing, and these do look fantastic on almost any bike, although they can lack protection for your gear in really bad weather, and if you are riding through the winter, you might want to invest in a set of slightly worse looking, but more effective metal panniers for the winter. 

Like Italian Vespa scooters, you can never have too many lights on a cruiser, so it comes as no surprise that most cruiser accessories stores have a really great selection of different lighting packages that you can fit to the front of your bike.  Although the majority of bikes come with a single light, a pair of lights on a light bar  usually looks better, while a triplet is a slightly more unusual look that can work well when the outside lights are much smaller than the main unit. 

One area of a cruiser that has always been a popular spot for modification is the fuel tank, and many specialist stores exist where you can get a customized fuel tank with custom airbrush work of your choice on it, although many people still choose to get the work done to their exact specifications by a friend. 

If there is one area that really dominates the whole cruiser look it is the chrome.  As it says above, it is all too easy to get carried away with adding extra chrome when you are customizing your bike, so it is important to know when to stop adding to the mix. 

A good place to start is the foot protectors, these make the bike look wider and give it more presence, as well as giving your feet a little more protection when you are riding.  Another great area to add a little chrome is around the saddle, where it can emphasize the lines of the bike, and give it a more purposeful low slung look.  

Many riders like to add wider or higher handlebars to their cruising bike to give it a more reclined riding position, and when this is combined with other cruiser accessories such as a set of extended front forks, it can create a really dramatic look that is certain to turn heads. 

The key with any motorcycle customization is to make it reflect your own personality, and not to go so far with it that it looks anything other than effortless – custom bikes are supposed to be cool remember!

We carry a wide selection of cruiser accessories in our online catalog for you to choose from.
