Bellingham, MA (PRWEB) August 27, 2007
Harley-Davidson has been telling us for years their stock throttle lock was there for warm-up and service "only" and never intended to be used as a mechanical cruise control device. Although that may be Harley's stance, anyone who does any long distance, or cold weather riding has used the throttle lock to give their right hand a break.
Tom Lane, owner of Heritage Machine, took on the challenge to convert the original equipment thumbwheel to a lever operated, throttle lock / control that would be easy to use, look like it came with the bike and affordable to anyone that rides a Harley or Custom motorcycle.
The result is Cruise-Mate, an inexpensive (under $100.00), easy to install, easy to use throttle lock that looks Kick-Ass good on any Harley or Custom motorcycle.
Cruise-Mate is available in two configurations (Cruise-Mate and Cruise-Mate II), both units use solid stainless steel stud, spring, bolt and bushing. Cruise-Mate uses a solid polished-303 stainless steel handle where Cruise-Mate II uses a die cast zinc handle with black powder coat finish. Functionality of both units is identical and guaranteed as long as you own your bike.
Although created with Harley-Davidson in mind, Cruise-Mate and Cruise-Mate II are now available for Victory and many Metric Cruisers.
