British Customs’ Weekend Projects continues with Mule Motorcycles partnership and a Thursday Boot Co. and custom motorcycle giveaway for charity.
LOS ANGELES, CA
DECEMBER 09, 2015
British Customs continues their Weekend Projects series to put motorcycle customization in the hands of the average rider, and will be giving away a pair of boots from Thursday Boot Co. as well as a custom CROIG X BC Edition 2015 Triumph Bonneville to raise awareness for Riders for Health charity.
Getting a custom motorcycle has always been considered prohibitively costly or difficult, but British Customs is changing that.
British Customs’ Weekend Projects makes motorcycle customization accessible by eliminating the guesswork of what is necessary and how difficult a project may be by bundling products into packages of bolt-on parts that can completely transform a motorcycle in an afternoon. They have published multiple buyer’s guides and design guides to walk riders through what options are available for their bike section by section, and provide inspiring how to guides detailing how to build any number of iconic retro styled motorcycles such as cafe racers, trackers, scramblers, bobbers, and more.
“Customizing your own motorcycle can be one of the most rewarding parts of being a rider,” stated Jason Panther, President of British Customs. “We want to share those experiences with other people by making motorcycle customization something that can be done in your own garage, with just a set of basic tools.”
British Customs draws on the heritage of motorcycling for many of their part designs. They are inspired by the idea that form must meet function, and that riders shouldn’t be limited to their stock setups, but should be able to make whatever style motorcycle they would like both in terms of looks and what kind of riding they are able to do on them.
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.
