A R Harley (2008) Ltd was formed in 1996, is family-owned and has developed the wholesale side of the business.
Company director, Nick Isles, says, "Much of our wholesale output is exported to the USA, an interesting fact since America is the home of the Harley Davidson motorcycle. Having said that, our exhausts are probably the highest quality available on the market and we are the only manufacturer in the world to offer a 10-year warranty." Since its beginnings, the business, which specialises in producing parts and accessories for Harley Davidson motorcycles, now sells across the UK, Europe and worldwide. The mail order and retail sales are well developed and the next development is writing for Harley-Davidson magazines about Custom motorcycles.
We are pleased to present a range of well designed and high quality parts for your motorcycle as well as parts for custom bike building. We aim to be helpful with any information you may need for planning your custom bike build, some of which is available by email request. We offer the widest range of aluminium gas tanks available from a single source.
Building a Custom Bike in USA, Canada, Mexico
A R Harley (2008) Ltd approach to the supply of custom bike parts and the building of bikes comes from a particular angle. We like the customer and their needs to be the centre of any purchase. Offering the widest range of parts than any supplier in Europe and possibly on the planet along with our wide experience, we aim to help each customer obtain the parts they need either to customise their bike, provide a bike kit or to build their dream custom. We are dedicated to understanding the wants, needs and desires of the most discriminating bikers and custom bike builders
We can provide consultation sessions where customers can explore the styles and costs of their custom to see if they can fit their dream bike within their budget. Sometimes the realities can encourage the customer not to proceed or to try something else. We would rather the customer was properly advised and took the correct course of action than start a project, fail to finish it and subsequently become disappointed with their own efforts. Failing to complete a project can become a very costly process because any sale of the unused parts won't realise the cost of purchasing the parts. Our aim is to offer a range of services tailored to the customer’s style and budget. We can supply parts for you to build your custom and we can also undertake a dry build for you.
Support to Customers in USA, Canada and Mexico and other parts of the world
If you undertake the build yourself from parts purchased from us you will have available a knowledge base that you can consult at any time. We can advise you about any aspect of the build and offer the most cost effective solutions to most problems.
