If you’re looking for the bike of your dreams, buying it is one option. Building it is another. Customisation is all about making your motorbike your own. One small part may be all you need, but there are benefits to constructing a fresh creation entirely from scratch as well. Welcome to the exciting world of custom motorcycle parts fabrication.
As you know, a high-performing machine runs on many different motorcycle parts working together for power and function. Some of these parts, like brakes, exhausts and air intake systems, you think about and use all the time. Then there are the smaller, more intricate ones: the seals, gaskets and cables.
The word “custom” describes bikes that have been modified to look, feel and perform differently than when they were new. It also describes “custom” motorcycles built from the ground up. Custom parts are the special parts that add these unique qualities to the bikes, and the process of constructing these parts is called custom motorcycle parts fabrication.
There are benefits to building or modifying your own bike, even if you’re not a raging motorcycle enthusiast or don’t want to get your hands dirty. It provides a great deal of freedom. If you’ve scored an excellent deal on a bike, but there are one or two things you aren’t completely happy with, you don’t just have to learn to live with them.
While building your motorcycle yourself can be a profoundly satisfying activity, it’s not a pre-requisite. For all the custom motorcycle parts and accessories you need, and even custom builds, contact Taverner Motorsports. As you’re about to find out, we’ve been doing this for a long time.
Where Can You Get Custom Motorcycle Build Services?
On top of building a bike yourself in your own garage or workshop, there are many avenues you can go down for custom motorcycle build services.
Plenty of motorcycle shops and garages offer custom bike-building services. The question is, how do you know which ones are trustworthy? You want to ensure you’re getting a good deal from people who know what they’re doing, and you want to ensure they know how to work on your bike.
Taverner can fabricate anything and everything to build your dream bike. Formed in the 70s, we’ve spent decades working on motorbikes and have experience with British, American and Japanese models. All of our modifications are in accordance with Australian standards and ADR regulations, so your bike is guaranteed to stay legal for registration and insurance purposes.
We can customise your way, doing as little as a single modification or as much as a whole bike, fully built according to your preferences.
On top of our bike-building services, we also have a large motorcycle parts store both on our website and in person at our Bowen Hills address. Whether it’s custom motorcycle parts fabrication or custom motorcycle parts and accessories you’re after, Taverner is more than happy to help you.
Benefits of Custom Motorcycles
If you still haven’t decided if a custom motorcycle is for you or not, here are some of the benefits of owning one to help you make up your mind:
Your bike will be uniquely your own, and you really can have it your way.
Okay, being “different” probably isn’t the end goal in itself, but building a bike according to your unique preferences and specifications is a decent aim. When you build from scratch, you can avoid your least favourite things about the existing motorbike models that are currently coming out of factories. You can also indulge in your own unique preferences rather than having to shop around until you find a motorbike that meets all your non-negotiables.
And if your personal tastes run towards older-model bikes that are so rare they’re hard to buy, even used, a custom design is the best way to attain something with that classic vintage look.
You can make it reliable
When you choose the right parts for your bike from the very beginning (which Taverner can help you with), you can minimise maintenance and repairs on your bike down the line. Pick parts that are high-quality and easy to obtain from the very beginning, and you can save yourself a lot of headaches later on if something goes wrong.
You can have something that turns heads without spending a fortune to get it
Custom bikes don’t have to be expensive. Taverner’s costs for parts and for bike building are very reasonable for the high level of quality we offer. And with a custom bike, you can always set a budget and stick to parts you can afford.
Some motorcycle companies make a lot of money selling custom bikes, often purpose-built for performance, that look and feel amazing to ride. You can have a bike that performs how you want and gets people’s attention without paying for an already-existing model.
It never goes out of style
One of the biggest benefits of having old-fashioned taste and building a bike with a vintage look is there’s no expiration date on its level of “cool”. A custom motorcycle with a unique, one-of-a-kind look never looks dated if you build it right.
Take care of it; it will improve with age, like a fine wine rather than a relic of a bygone era.
If you build it yourself, it’s a learning experience
You may already love motorbikes, but having your own project bike to work on will give you a new appreciation for the science behind bike-building.
You’ll also understand how the machines work a lot better, and when something goes wrong, you’ll have a firmer idea of what needs to be done and what kind of part you need. It will save you time and money in the long run.
And if we build it for you, it’s guaranteed to last
Taverner treat your bike like it’s one of our own, giving it the attention and care it needs. We want you to be able to count on it for many years to come, so we assemble it with the utmost care and a focus on your long-term safety and comfort.
