Pocket Bike Customisation - Some Tips

So you just obtained your first pocket bike, or perhaps you're doing a major upgrade. Even though it is now a cool bike, imagine your embarrassment when you show it to friends and realize that two of them have exactly the same bike. This might bring you down to earth a bit, but luckily this can be just a temporary problem. A big benefit of owning a pocket bike is that that customising them yourself is easy! You can transform the pocket bike's style, do an upgrade, and transform it into a snazzy customised pocket bike for you to show of proudly. You'll find lots of parts and ideas at a pocket bike chop shop.

Your ordinary pocket bike can be transformed into a custom designed pocket rocket! If you don't know where to find parts, make sure to check out one of the many mini bike forums that have recently sprung to life on the Internet. Here there are fellow bikers who will show you where to find the best deals and also the places which you should avoid!


A good place to check out is a local pocket bike dealership. Until recently dealers didn't sell spare pocket bike parts, but since the popularity of minimoto and custom pocket bikes has exploded in recent years, many of mini bike dealers have begun to stock parts and accessories in order to keep up with the demand. Along with individual parts, many chop shops sell performance upgrading kits, which also include excellent instructions. For inexperienced pocket bike mechanics, this will prove invaluable.

Some Parts to Upgrade

Fairings are not essential, but make your pocket bike look cool!  These are the plastic covers that surround the frame of your pocket bike, and give it a "super bike" type of look.  You can't do much to change them, but you can change the color with paint or decorate them with decals and that is always pretty fun to do.

Your tires can make a huge difference when racing so this is certainly one of the major pocket bike components you would be advised to think about upgrading.  Most pocket bikes are purchased with fairly crappy, generic tires therefore an upgrade is usually almost essential.

Conclusion

You don't have to have a bike identical to your friends. Just ensure your customised pocket bike appears as snazzy as it runs. From a chop shop or the net you'll find a long list of accessories and parts to pick from to make you bike one of a kind. This includes headlights, trunks, chrome wheels, horns, saddles and saddlebags, tank pouches and tanks, accessory designs, decal kits, etc. If you've seen customised pocket bikes, you'll know what a difference this can make!
