Mid Life Cycles – we share a passion for great motorcycles…

…some of them left as the manufacturer intended, and some modified to a style and a period that reflects or even pre-dates the age of the donor bikes – and some of their owners!


Bell Helmets Custom 500

Mid Life Cycles now stocks BELL Custom 500 helmets. As the advert says, “Not Retro. Original.” Great helmets and road-legal (AS/NZS1698 certified). Why risk it with a non-certified helmet when you and your riding companion can both be safe and look cool, legally?

We’re building a reputation for quality, whether it’s classic bikes in original or restored condition, or custom bikes from mild to wild… see our Facebook page for regular updates. And somewhere in there you’ll find a few Retro-bikes that we look after, such as Kawasaki’s W650 twin or ZR750 four, for those who want the style and experience without the pain (and cost) that come with some Sixties and Seventies Classics.

There’s always more in store – or in our heads – so give us a call on (03) 9421 3765 or come and see what’s happening. We’re open Monday to Saturday : Weekdays 8.00am till 4.00pm, Saturdays 10.00am till 4.00pm.

Easyrider Kawasaki W650 street-tracker at Motorclassica

So whether it’s classic bikes, cafe racers or cool customs that kick your starter, call and see us at Mid Life Cycles, but phone first – we’d like to set time aside to talk with you!

Shorai Batteries
Shorai Batteries are ideal for cafe racers and classic bikes.

Mid Life Cycles is now a dealer for BELL Custom 500, Nolan and MOMO helmets and also for the excellent Shorai Batteries. If your classic bike or cafe racer needs a battery that holds its charge much longer than conventional lead-acid batteries, is ultra-light, compact and sealed so it mounts anywhere (even sideways or upside down), and cranks out enough sparks to start high-comp engines, give us a call – (03) 9421 3765.
