Motorcycle locksmiths can make keys by impression if they have been lost, whether for a motorcycle, cycle or scooter.

If a key breaks while turning in a lock, motorcycle locksmiths can extract the broken part from inside the locking mechanism. Motorcycle locksmiths also make custom motorcycle keys.

A motorcycle locksmith can provide a variety of locks for motorcycles, such as fork, U-lock or disc brake locks. A fork lock is a brightly tagged lock for the forks of a motorcycle. A U-lock is a U-shaped stainless steel lock that clamps to the wheel of a motorcycle, stopping the wheels from rotating. A disc brake lock also stops wheels from rotating, but is a cylindrical lock that clamps inside the wheel.
