If you’re a Harley lover, more than likely, one of your many motorcycle-related dreams will be to build a custom bagger bike of your own, as baggers are now, and have been for many decades, incredibly popular and extremely desirable. Finding the time to install Harley custom bagger parts as well as accessories can be tough enough, but if you’re really committed and are truly serious about building your very own custom bagger motorcycle, there are a number of different things you will have to do and consider. To help make the process that much easier however, take a look at these helpful tips that we’ve compiled, and before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to having built one of the most stunning custom baggers in the entire country, and that can only be a good thing.
Choose the bags you require – The saddlebags are the most vital part of any bagger bike, so when upgrading your Harley custom bagger bike, the various bagger parts and accessories will have to be at the forefront of your mind. The great thing about building a custom harley is the fact that you can design the hog to your own specs, so you can have it looking the way you want it to look. You can choose hard saddlebags, soft leather saddlebags, different stitching, different fabrics and much more besides. Before you begin working on your custom build, you must first commit to a set of saddlebags that you feel will not only look the best, but also be the most practical.
Decide on a budget – Building your very own custom Harley bagger bike is not going to be done cheap, although by going the aftermarket route, you can save a decent amount of cash, but even so, you will still need to budget and work out how much you can afford to spend, and how much you will need to spend. Sit down and work out the costs for each of the various parts you need, making sure to take labour expenses into consideration, and then compare this with how much you can afford, and then see where you’re at from there.
Speak to a person who knows – Before you begin work on your custom Harley bagger, one of the first things you must do is sit down and speak with the experts and see what they have to say on the matter. These people in the know will not only be able to give you expert advice, they will also be able to help you with certain jobs that would perhaps have been too difficult to do by yourself. Don’t be ashamed to ask for help, be open and honest with what you want and what you’re looking for, and you’ll soon be benefitting from another person’s wisdom, experience, and expertise.
