5 Motorcycle Father's Day Gifts That Won’t Break The Bank

Cycle World compiles a list of five items that motorcycle dads will enjoy for under $100.

Dads are always tough to shop for when Father's Day rolls around. Luckily, moto-dads are a bit easier as they can always use a new tool, some shiny bit, or some good entertainment. Here at Cycle World we've put together a list of five items that your motorcycle-riding pop will dig but won't drain your wallet.

Motion Pro Large Magnetic Parts Tray

Motion Pro's Large Magnetic Parts Tray will quickly become one of the most useful tools in dad's arsenal. A stainless steel stray measuring 5.5 by 9.5 inches is mounted to large and powerful magnets. Not only will the magnets keep any ferrous fasteners or parts in the tray, they also allow the tray to stay put either on a toolbox, metal fender, or steel frame. At 3/4 inch in depth it also stops aluminum, titanium, and plastic bits from wandering off as well. At just $14.95, this is a surefire winner.

Wallets have always been a go-to for a Father's Day gift because they are functional and personal. The Roland Sands Designs Riverside Wallet is a high-quality top-grain leather wallet with quilted stitching and RSD trim. The bill pocket and credit card slots are lined with durable waxed cotton. A braided leather cord is attached with a snap hook to allow for use on and off the bike. At $65, it's a deal for such a high-quality wallet that will last years in dad's pocket.

Universal Stainless Steel Cable Strap

Lockstraps offers a full line of motorcycle tie-downs that feature a combination lock-equipped carabiner and an internal stainless steel cable to secure motorcycles, ATVs and gear. These are great for use in the bed of the pickup on a road trip, but what about when dad is on the road with his bike? Enter Lockstraps' Universal Stainless Steel Cable Strap. It can be used to lock the bike in place or lock items to the bike or both at the same time. At 24 feet long, it has plenty of length to connect more than one bike together. Just like the tie-downs, inside the double nylon webbing strap is a braided stainless steel cable to stop or at least significantly slow down thieves. It's also much lighter than a cable or chain and rolls up into a compact package, perfect for travelers.
