Turn Your Motorcycle Hobby Into A Career

This is Print View - Back to Normal View

Many people with a passion for motorcycles or cars don't realize that their hobby could turn into a career. The secret to a great career is to find something you enjoy and that you are good at, then find a way to make money at it.

Motor Cycle MechanicThe first thought that generally comes to mind when thinking of careers dealing with motorcycles are mechanics. Motorcycle mechanics is a career that requires years of experience and training with different types of motorcycles. Often times they attend a vocational program that targets motorcycle repair and maintenance.

Motorcycle mechanics also need experience using computer systems to help determine any problems with the equipment. Many newer motorcycles have computer systems that automatically determine if there are any problems with the bike, and what measures are needed to repair it.

Another career in the motorcycle industry is customizing motorcycles and automobiles. Most motorcycles and cars have upgrade and customization options from the manufacturer, while other customization options are done in auto body shops.

Options range from airbrushed decals, trailer hitches for both cars and motorcycles, to a customized interior and custom rims and tires. Special fabrication shops have the capability of building cars and motorcycles from the ground up or almost any personalized modification. Motorcycle and automobile installation goes beyond repairs in that it encompasses an entire customization industry including custom chassisís, racing cars and classic hot rod exhibit cars.

If working on motorcycles themselves doesnít interest you, there is also the option of selling motorcycles or salvaged parts. There are many opportunities for both buying and selling motorcycles and motorcycle parts. If you enjoy speaking to people, a position in motorcycle sales may be the thing for you. If you are more into buying and selling, you may want to consider a position in motorcycle salvage.

If you love motorcycles and are web savvy, you could open up an online website to sell motorcycle parts online or refer people to dealers.

With the price of gasoline rising, scooters and motorcycles are becoming a cheap and convenient mode of transportation. If your hobby involves motorcycles, it would certainly be worthwhile to explore further education and career opportunities in the field of motorcycle repair, customization and sales.
