Arlen Ness. Most bike enthusiasts are undoubtedly familiar with this name. As loud and proud Arlen fans, we’re here today to praise the king of custom motorcycles. But, if you’re new to the community, Arlen was a legendary motorcycle designer who earned his nickname, The King, after 50 years of designing and optimising Harley Davidson motorcycle parts. His iconic style of outlandish spray paints, gold trims and swooping lines make his builds a work of art that will forever leave their mark on the motorcycle community. 

While his “blingy” details and bold colours can be polarising to some, you can’t deny the distinctness and quality of his designs. So if you’re ready for some iconic and eye-catching upgrades to your bike, then look no further, as today, the Taverner Motorsports team will be covering some of our favourite Arlen Ness bike parts that your bike deserves. 

Why Arlen Ness Bike Parts?

As a master of creativity, Arlen’s parts combine functionality, performance and style in one bodacious bundle. While known for his swooping lines and outlandish paintwork, there is truly something for everyone in the Arlen line. Regardless of how bold your bike design goals are, we can ensure each custom bike will be optimally built using Arlen Ness parts. 

Although not here today, his legacy continues, with the Arlen Ness name continuing to create great motorcycle parts year by year. As Arlen fans, the team at Taverner is proud stockiest, skilled in operating and modifying bikes with Arlen parts.

Changing lanes, parking, overtaking, we all know the benefits of having mirrors. As an essential part of your bike, these are an easy enhancement to make. In the component market, there are hundreds of designs to choose from, allowing you endless customisation. Picking between these depends on your style and your bike’s purpose. Is your bike for commuting, leisure or purely aesthetic?

Predominantly known for his painting style and swooping lines, another of Arlen’s standout custom motorcycle designs were his iconic mirror designs. Specifically the caged and flames mirrors. With any of these, you can expect attention drawn to your bike.

While Arlen Ness was recognised and celebrated for his outlandish paint designs, exaggerated lines and gold accents, he also provided minimalist mirror designs that take a new twist on classic designs. If you prefer subtle enhancement, the tearchop mirrors are your modern take on a classic mirror. 

Large enough to provide ample clear vision yet small enough to flow with the lines of your bike, we’re confident you’ll find an Arlen Ness mirror design suited to your build goals.

While easily overlooked for flasher bike parts, hand grips are essential for comfort, particularly if you’re a fan of long road trips (after all, what bike owner isn’t?). Beyond adding safety, the proper grips to your bike can contribute to subtle customisation that makes a difference in the grand scheme of a custom build. If you haven’t found the handgrips on your motorcycle, then your search is over.
