Get the 411 on Style & Performance
Cruisers are about style, and the booming aftermarket is as focused on appearance as it is on performance. Every cruiser sold is modified, period. The changes might be purely cosmetic (such as the addition of chrome, custom paint, and touring equipment), or they might improve performance (aftermarket exhaust, engine mods, brake upgrades).

So if you’re thinking about…

  • Installing aftermarket exhaust pipes
  • Braided steel cables
  • Installing fork springs
  • Rebuilding your calipers/master cylinders
  • Hydraulic fluid change
  • Aftermarket air kit installation
  • Installing a Dyna 3000
  • Installing an FI2000 or Power Commander
  • Re-jetting your carbs
