LOS ANGELES, CA
NOVEMBER 03, 2015
British Customs continues their Weekend Projects series by introducing their new Stainless Steel Collection of aftermarket parts for Triumph motorcycles and giving away a pair of unbreakable denim pants from Saint to raise awareness for Riders for Health charity.
The new Stainless Steel Collection is made in the USA, and includes quick release seat screws, quick release side cover screws, a mock Monza gas cap, and a retro-style tail light. British Customs published a complete buyer's guide on the Stainless Steel Collection on their blog, among others.
Last week, British Customs kicked off their new Weekend Projects series, which puts customizing a motorcycle in the hands of the average rider by offering complete packages of aftermarket parts to customize a bike system by system. These packages are complete with all the parts necessary to fully personalize any system on a bike, and need only common tools and basic technical knowledge to install.
Inspired by the craftsmanship of yesteryear’s legendary motorcycle builders, British Customs designed an all-new line of stainless steel aftermarket products for Triumph motorcycles. Their Stainless Steel Collection’s designs pay homage to the mindset of those who helped shape the motorcycle industry with an obsession for using only the highest quality materials on their motorcycles.
“We’re seeking to restore an appreciation for craftsmanship and quality materials in the motorcycle industry,” said Jason Panther, President of British Customs. “We want to revitalize the tradition of working on your own bike, and the heritage of craftsman designs.”
British Customs is also hosting a GoPro Photo & Video Challenge, where anyone can submit photos or videos in a contest to win a GoPro camera. For the next seven weeks, submissions will be judged according to a theme. The theme this week is “do-it-yourself.”
British Customs’ Weekend Projects is also an initiative to raise awareness for Riders for Health charity, which uses motorcycles to deliver life-saving medical supplies to rural communities in Africa. In aid of Riders’ efforts, a CROIG X BC Edition 2015 Triumph Bonneville will be given away. Donate and register to win here.
