Coker Tyres

Big, bold retro tires by Coker Tire Co. I picked them to give the ride a different look while also improving the ride quality. The big chunky volume of rubber definitely improve the look and ride. I picked them up from North Hants Tyres.

  • Big bold and retro
  • Improved ride from riding on so much rubber
  • Look bad ass

K&N Air Filter

Improving the air flow from stock with a K&N air intake. The right angle pipe is home made to give a rugged look.

  • Improved air flow
  • Unique look with custom home-made pipe

Bobble beanie

I'm a lover of my beanies with my favourites being by OzDynes and For The Shore.
