Performance Machine
The obsession with perfection continues…

In 2010, Performance Machine will celebrate our 40th Anniversary manufacturing what are quite simply, the finest motorcycle products in the industry. Performance Machine has experienced many changes in motorcycling over the years, but PM's desire to provide you - the enthusiast with quality, innovative products has never faltered.

Performance Machine currently operates out of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility complete with a testing lab. PM continues to set standards in the motorcycle industry with everything from design, testing, manufacturing, and secondary operations performed in-house in order to maintain superior quality. PM is proud to be made in the USA.

The PM product line consists of over 17 unique wheel designs and matching components in several different finishes including the innovative Contrast Cut Series. Each Performance Machine wheel is tested to JASO and TUV standards using torsional, impact, side load and radial load testing methods. PM's line of calipers is Dyno tested to ensure superior stopping power and are available in several different styles depending upon the motorcycle model. Contour Hand and Foot Controls as well as a complete line of accessories finish off the PM line. Each and every PM product is designed to be innovative and stylish as well as functional.

Performance Machine has celebrated many "firsts" in our industry including billet aluminum wheels, CNC machined calipers, Contour Hand and Foot Controls, the Contour Wheel Line, and our amazing Contrast Cut Series. Each of these products is a testament of our dedication to the Performance Machine Brand. Performance Machine looks forward to celebrating another 40 years in the motorcycle industry where the enthusiasm and the passion for everything two-wheeled go unmatched.
