Lowbrow Filtro-Max oil filter mount

We all know engine oil is the blood of your bike. A good filter prevents premature damage. Very important, but what about looks? So, the designers went to the bathroom and did some long, hard thinking to come with a custom application mounting bracket that would both have the looks and add something extra. The Filtro-Max oil filter mount (946326 polished / 946327 black electroplated) is cast in aluminum in a distinctive ribbed design, takes all standard style screw-on oil filters and will look like a million dollars on a though bike. As extra the ribs will aid in cooling. Additionally a 6061-T6 aluminum motormount bracket is available (MCS 946328 polished / 946329 black) that will make the Filtro-Max 'bolt-on' to the front motor mounts of Big Twin models. Comes complete with all necessary hardware. Just give your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer a call for a great oil filter mount.

Bondhus - 7-1 Hawg Buddy

Your bike is nothing short of great. Of coarse it is, otherwise you wouldn't have it in the first place. Your feel for style, class and quality is immaculate. Nevertheless, you know that at a certain point in time little things will happen. Something like a screw working itself loose, or maybe you want to install something small. Well, this is what you've been waiting for! This Bondhus 7-1 Hawg Buddy is made to carry it with you, on the road. Included are just 3 Allenhead wrenches, a T27 and T40 Torx wrench and a single number 2 Phillips screwdriver. It's almost nothing but this kit is actually composed with Harley riders in mind and you will be surprised to find you be able to loosen and tighten most common fasteners in use on the bike. Kinda like a little insurance along the way. Nice gift too. Available as MCS 517015 and you can get it through your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer. Give him a call, you'll be glad you did.

Anti-Reversion valves

A more open exhaust can have a great sound and more top end power, but can suffer from reduced back-pressure which will hurt low-end performance. Anti Reversion Valves are installed in the beginning of the exhaust, close to the cylinder head. Exhaust gasses exit the cylinder head in shockwave like pulses, it will help prevent exhaust gasses from reverting and re-entering the cylinder head. Designed to fit most stock 1 3/4" diameter pipes. Available in chrome plated and stainless steel. Call your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer for info

 

Bell Helmets

Motorcycle Storehouse is proud to announce they will now be able to distribute Bell Helmets, an American company of high end helmets. Their roots go back as Bell Auto Parts, an auto racing parts supplier. In 1946 one of the owners, Roy Richter, lost another friend in racing, setting him to think about safety. The times were different, an exciting era with a world full of people exploring the edges of mechanical and human possibilities. With the adrenaline rush getting you high and your focus on nothing but the win, you will take to extremes in a blur of fading reality, flying across the race track, down the strip, street or actually anywhere, anytime. Safety was not an issue, ha, but going faster than your opponent was! Eventually, in 1954, Bell introduced their Bell 500 jet helmet, and it raised safety to a new level! Bell has always been, and still is, in the forefront setting the standards. Providing the protection that keeps the best of the best, the winners of medals and those that go where nobody has gone before, alive. Evil Knievel used a Bell helmet and still holds the Guinness World Record by suffering 433 broken bones in his career... but he never cracked his skull. Graig Breedlove wore his Bell while blasting across Bonneville at 600 mph in his 15.000 horsepower jet car. Richard Petty ruled Nascar and Kenny Roberts powered to the win in GP motorcycle racing. Steve McQueen had a passion for all that men like, including his Bell helmet. John Tomac ruled bicycle racing, tarmac or downhill, he did it all. The list is seemingly endless, and for a good reason. Today Bell is still the number one name today for professional racers that require the unsurpassed quality that only the best can offer. Even when your not the racing ace of your country, Bell will deliver. The complete Motorcycle Storehouse collection will be available, from stock, from the spring of 2014. Amongst those will be the Bullitt, a classic full face helmet and the Custom 500, the classic jet helmet and the SX-1, RS-1 and M5X series in a full range of colors and graphic designs. All Bell helmets come standard with the assurance of a well engineered, innovative, EC approved product with a history that is hard to match. Dealers are advised to check the Motorcycle Storehouse website and contact their sales representative for more information.

Progressive Suspension's 412 Cruise for Sportster

We know that Progressive Suspension is one of the leaders when it comes to Harley-Davidson High-Quality aftermarket suspension systems. One of the latest additions is the '412 Cruise' shock absorbers. These fit all 04-14 Sportster models and come in black with chrome or black springs. The nice thing is that when installed these 12.5 inch shocks will give low ride height of just 11.5 inch still providing the full stroke of 12.5 inch springs. When things get rough that's a nice thought. It's done through the use of special flat-wire progressive springs in combination with gas charged dampers. Pre-load is 5-stage adjustable. Available through your local Motorcycle Storehouse dealer.

 

Rokker - Biker wear

If you drive a car, wear what you want. Sneakers, short pants, T-shirts or even nothing at all, who cares? When you ride a bike things are different. Rokker is a company that makes cool stuff, jackets, pants and boots, these are the things a biker would want to wear. Not just because they look good but because the clothing is made from 100% schoeller®-Denim-Dynatec which makes it highly abrasive resistant but keep the looks of regular Denim. The material is wind resistant and water repellent with taped seams, but still breathing and comfortable to wear all day long. Some like the small but important things like the integrated leash in the jackets. They can be attached to the pants to prevent jacket creeping-up when riding. An excellent feature are the schoeller®-Denim-Dynatec protector pockets in shoulders, elbow and back. In the pants you'll find them in the knee and hip area. The EC approved shock absorbent protectors are separately available and easily removable. If you think about some cool clothing, fashionable and comfortable enough to wear all day. When visiting your local Storehouse dealer, Rokker may be the company to keep an eye out for.

Crampbusters

If you do some serious riding, we're talking long highway stretches here, then you are familiar with the effects the throttle grip has on your right hand muscles and wrist. Unless you have cruise control, you'll be fighting the throttle return spring without end. The next best choice is Crampbusters. It is basically a pre-formed piece of plastic that will clamp itself easily around the throttle grip, it just slides-on, no need to disassemble anything. When cruising down the highway you can rest the palm of your hand on the Crampbusters, where it clamps itself around your grip when applying downward pressure. It easily adjusts by turning it forward to the most comfortable angle. The support it provides in holding the throttle open is so effective that you have just one wish left. A larger fuel tank. Available in 1 3/8 inch and smaller grip or 1 3/8 and larger grips, both in wide or narrow version. Some are available in black, chrome or even pink. For more information in regards to beating throttle hand fatigue, contact your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer

Classic cloth covered wiring

New in the 'Classic Department' of Motorcycle Storehouse is asphalt coated fabric loom electrical wiring. A reproduction of the wiring that was used many years ago and is great for restorations or a custom job in which an authentic classic wiring should be present.

Performance Machine - Universal Vintage calipers

In style with the times or retro bikes Performance Machine introduced their 'Vintage Caliper' in classic chrome, plain clear anodized or black anodized with a contrast cut machined finish. Contrary to the looks it is not a 2-piston caliper, it was designed to look vintage, but modern CAD/CAM engineering with a 4-piston set-up is used. PM is no new kid on the block when it comes to brakes and the 'Vintage' is no less a mixture of technical excellence and an esthetical work of art as  other PM brake components are. The 'Vintage Ribs', for instance, are actually designed as reinforcing ribs to decrease flexing, improving brake feel, give better control and aid in cooling when the going gets hot. The bodies, or caliper halves, are CNC machined from one-piece billet bar, a much more homogeneous material, giving it a natural material strength over regular cast calipers. When it comes down to the nitty gritty, the PM Vintage will not only cut the cake, but cut it better than most other hyper calipers out there. The design is symmetrical and it can therefore be used left, right, front or rear, and with the appropriate separately available bracket for 84-99 or 00-14 H-D models. You can even choose to make your own bracket, in a one-off style, for any custom application you can think of and be certain of top-notch quality brake set-up when you're done. For more information, contact your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer. 

 

Arlen Ness, ´KO´ raked triple trees

'Gotta rake your baggah boy!!' That's something you could hear your dealer say when you contemplate the installation of a large front wheel. As you know a large diameter front wheel cannot be installed as a direct replacement of the stock wheel, you will need to rake your forks. The solution is made by Arlen Ness. He designed a series of special triple trees which are used to rake your forks and are to be used in combination with specific large wheel diameters. An 11° rake is designed to be used with 21" (4.5" trail), 23" (5.25" trail) or 26" (6" trail) wheels only. The 7° is to be used with 23" (7" trail) or 21" (6 1/8" trail). Note that Ness 'KO' triple trees are designed with large wheels only and will not handle correctly with stock wheels. Available in 11 & 7 degrees for 97-13 Touring models, with 41mm forks and in 7 degree for 2014 Touring models equipped with 49mm forks. Installing the right Ness 'KO' raked triple tree set will guarantee a good ride with that large front wheel and give absolute killer looks. So...

Motogadget, M-Blaze LED turn signals

Motogadget is a well know supplier, based in Germany, for various high tech and electronic equipment. Some time ago the 'M-Blaze' turn signals were introduced. These are used inside the handlebar, giving a truly custom look due to the design and combination of LEDs and clear transparent reflecting glass-like material. The very flat M-Blaze Disc, with 7W power LEDs, is a variation on that design. They are also to be used inside the handlebar, with an inside diameter of 14mm to 21mm, which includes all regular 22mm (7/8”) and 1 inch (25.4mm) bars. The latest addition is the M-Blaze Ice, with 3W power LEDs, designed as a regular replacement turn signal and comes with an 8mm threaded stud.

Vance & Hines - Twin Slash 3-1/4” slip-ons EC approved

Owning a Harley can have a series of reasons, one of them is having a mind of your own. Contrary to most, some individuals just don’t feel need to conform to what everybody else has, thinks, rides or does and that being different is not a necessarily bad at all. No other bike in the world can give you the individualism of a Harley, you can create a bike that suits you better than any middle-of-the-road store-bought machine ever could. Riding a Harley gives you to opportunity to mix, match and change components to alter looks, performance or rideability very easily since there are so many high quality components to be found.  Vance and Hines is definitely one of the finer companies, well known for their high quality, high performance exhaust systems. The latest addition their Twin Slash 3-1/4” slip-on mufflers for all 07-13 and 2014 883/1200 Sportsters, a 07-14 Dyna FXDB Street Bob and a 07-14 Softail Fatboy version in a EC approved version complete with catalytic converter in a black or chrome finish. V&H also added a EC approved version of the Twin Slash slip-ons for the 08-14 Dyna FXDF and 10-13 FXDWG – however these slip-ons come without the catalytic converter as already in the head pipes. Just take the stock mufflers off and slip-on the Vance & Hines replacements. These are exhausts for those that want another look but don’t desire sound levels higher than stock... just another look at individualism. Talk to your dealer for more information on loud or silent

Biltwell Gringo - Limited Edition

The Limited Edition comes in a series of Ultra Classic color schemes. Since no time machine exists the Gringos had to be made in the 21st. century and that's why it is nothing short of amazing how awesome 70's these helmets look. Even more mind boggeling is that the quality surpasses the actual 70's helmets. The Gringo is the Mother of Classic, in Overdrive!

Le Spectrum
An extremely popular 70's scheme that found its way through a range of products, advertisements, muscle cars and of course in the color schemes on the fuel tanks of the 70's AMF Harley-Davidson models! Don't like it? Better say it very, very quiet...

Le Scallop
The Le Scallops are just drippin’ with speed. In Badass Black / Orange it’s a dead giveaway for diehards and Antique White / Red scheme looks even better than what we had in the 70’s!

Biltwell Bonanza - Limited Edition

The open face Biltwell Bonanza Limited Editions comes in color schemes that is worth the description 'Classic' in capital letters. Like the regular Bonanzas they meet US DOT safety standards. Powered to tele-transport you right back to times where the definition of speed was measured in a vibrating oil spitting frenzy or trying to survive a sudden horrifying speed wobble at +100 mph. The open face Bonanza experience is comparable to clocking 100 mph in a hopped up T-Ford. Loud, fast and fun! If you prefer the same 100 mph as a freeway cruise in a luxury sedan, the Bonanza is not the way.

Le Racer
Just drippin' with old fashioned speed. Raw uncivilized horsepower is what matches this helmet, a clear reminiscent of racers in times where there was no substitute for cubic inches. Strokers ruled and... sometimes they still do.

Le Spectrum
An extremely popular 70's scheme that found its way through a range of products, advertisements, muscle cars and of course in the color schemes on the fuel tanks of the 70's AMF Harley-Davidson models! If you don't like it, better say it very, very quiet...

 

Rough Crafts

Winston Yeh is The Man behind Rough Crafts. A well known Taiwanese builder and designer of exotic custom bikes. Parts are exclusively made small scale high quality in-house productions, and used on Rough Crafts bikes. These parts reflect another Taiwan that many of us never new existed... a land of individualism and freedom. Winston is on the forefront of discovering new custom worlds. Softly spoken and with a deep interest in what moves a man's soul, an explorer of the fine line between devotion, ecstasy, agony even. An intense artist like Winston can not live, when his dedication to meet his creative desires are not met. It is not the money, it is the devotion to create in the purest sense of the word. This is why Winston Yeh is embraced by those that have a sense of taste that surpasses the average. Only those can appreciate Rough Crafts creations for what they really are, way more than what meets the eye, art on which a price tag is almost an insult. For more information on Rough Craft products, you can call your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer.

Kustom Tech - Inverted brake & clutch lever assemblies

Inverted controls have the pivot point on the outside on the handlebar, a system that used to be stock on some early bikes and the looks are very retro indeed, especially in the offered metal combinations of satin chrome, chrome and raw, satin or polished brass. If just inverted looks don't make it happen for you, the internal control cables may. Kustom Tech fabricates their inverted controls as full mechanical, no hydraulics can be used in the bar, but the set-up is as clean as you could imagine. Nothing on the bars except the levers and throttle. Note that internal throttle control is not compatible with a right side inverted brake assembly, for obvious reasons, but a front brake set-up could be done linking it to the rear brake similar to a car or some motorcycles even. Kustom-Tech even tough of offering some matching handlebar grip sets. In short: build options are overwhelming and looks absolutely staggering. If you want to take a plunge in the next customizing level, talk to your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer.

S&S Black Super carbs

In 2013 S&S Cycle Inc. celebrated their 55th. anniversary and introduced a special black version of their Super E and G carburetor, as Limited Production only. However the demand was huge and S&S decided to keep the black version in their programme. Available as carburetor only, not as carburetor kit, to give the builder a free choice in engine, manifold and air cleaner set-up. Apart from the color the Black Supers have an increased venturi diameter and supply up to 7% more flow at Wide Open Throttle. These Anniversary carbs were used to set 3 new land speed records in 2013, so yes... they work! Proven Performance, the S&S way. The black E/G carburetors have immediately been added to the Motorcycle Storehouse product line so, for more power you need not look further than your local MCS dealer.

 

Double G Baggers - Bagger upgrade components

It is not that long ago that an Electra Glide was nicknamed a Full Dresser and a typical bike for the older biker looking for comfort. When a Dresser was customized, light rails and as much chromed parts as possible were added. Since then things have changed rapidly. The Dresser is called Bagger and its image changed from pre-retired sleepy to, especially in custom versions, blazing hot. The truly top-dollar custom bikes of today are tricked-out baggers with more custom handmade components than the average chopper. Their coolness, long and low slung appearance with large diameter front wheels, raked front ends, stretched custom saddlebags, side panels, spoilers and fairings have absolutely no connection to the old truck-like style Full Dresser. The stock H-D models, however, still are and always will be a compromise to be able to please the general public. If your desire is an extreme Bagger you'll have to get down & dirty with home made or other custom components. Double G Baggers is a supplier of such custom components that, at a relatively reasonable cost, will enable you to transform a regular Touring model to an outrageous bagger. All products are made in-house in The Netherlands and their product line consists of fiberglass made components that include a series of mild to wild stretched saddlebags, saddlebag extensions, saddlebag lids, stretched side panels, front fenders, rear fender covers, rear fender extensions, rear fender fillers, fuel tank covers, stretched dash panels, stock and custom inner & outer Batwing fairings, dual headlamp inner & outer FLTR fairings and even a much flatter chopped version of a stock Tour-Pak. Components are available for various model years and are to be used by experienced custom builders. These parts are not a stock replacement, not plug & play and will always require paint, fitment and custom modifications before final installation. Hardware is not included. If you can do your part, nothing will stand in the way of creating your own King of Show Super Bagger. For more information on Double G Baggers you can contact your local Motorcycle Storehouse dealer 

Bob Fester - Ribbed fuel tanks

In life different things can be important at different times. If you're a long distance cruiser, with the emphasis on comfort, this may not be your product. On the other hand, if your thing is rough, rowdy and tough, keep on reading. The Bob Fester fuel tanks don't hold much fuel, around 2.35 gallon can be expected, but the looks will compliment the chopper or bobber a lot better than the average fuel tank and that is, in all honesty, quite important. The Bob Fester tanks are center ribbed, for that true retro look, include mounting hardware and come with a flush pop-up chrome plated gas cap. Available for 84-99 Softail (516601), 00-05 carbureted Softail (516602) and 82-03 Sportster (516603). For more information on these and other gas tanks, contact your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer.

Sportster fuel tank lift kit

A fish doesn't know water exists until it jumps in to the air. This is similar to the fact that most riders are not aware how a simple thing like a gas tank lift kit can have such a dramatic effect on looks. It opens-up the area between the front of the tank and the frame and gives it that unmistakable Rodder effect at a fraction of the price of a regular custom job or any other changes you might be contemplating. For just a handful of euros you can not just lift the tank, but your whole bike to that next custom level. Give your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer a call for more information. 

 

Vance & Hines Super Radius 2-2

A brand new exhaust system from Vance & Hines. Actually it looks a lot like the very popular Big Radius and, like its sibling, comes with 220 degrees 2 1/2" diameter plasma cut heatshields which will help prevent visible blueing to maintain great looks over a large period of time. The main difference is a larger muffler which is designed to give lower sound levels with bigger, 103" up, engines and the use of a special Power Chamber which connects front & rear exhaust to maximize low-end grunt.

Arlen Ness - Windshield trims for 14-15 Tourings

Small things can have a large effect, sometimes. It is not the Big Picture as a whole that is important since the Big Picture would never be without all the small parts that make the Big Picture what it is. The whole picture is effectively influenced by the small details, thus becoming immensely important, true for basically any evolving process. It may be the build of a house, car or, yes indeed, a motorcycle. Attention to detail is what sets a creation apart, makes it soar above average. Arlen Ness is such a man that has wings like an eagle and he has earned his living, since the beginning of the 70's, with an eye for immaculate detail. His relentless goal has always been, and still is, achieving a level of perfection in a way that may be looked upon by others as unnecessary. You could call this level 'The Ness Level' and, at which ever way you may look at it, it is as impressive as Michael Jordan in his best days. Take these windshield trims for instance, in chrome and black machined anodized aluminum. Perfection? Absolutely. But it’s one piece of the Big Picture puzzle. You can make it complete, even for the latest 2014 and 2015 Tourings, by contacting your Motorcycle Storehouse Dealer

The sissybar is available in a short (MCS 533353) and tall (MCS 533354) version, where only the tall sissybar includes a backrest pad for a passenger.
