Default The Great Indian Biker Build Off. Modified Bullet

Finally we have our own Indian Biker Build Off.
Work on this Bullet had started off quite a few months ago i guess. Now the bikes almost ready. Just some finishing touches are remaining.

Overall the bike looks pretty good. 2 size more fatter rubber on the front and rear would have looked better. The handlebar is home-made. Silencer should have been sloping upwards instead of downwards.

Hey good find v12!
a couple of pointers........ the speedo could be removed..... doesnt quite go with the flow of the bike. Yup, i agree with v12.... the silencer should have gone up...... but then i wouldn't want to be standing behind this Bullet!!
Hmmmm, do you think the rear mudguard is going to do its job during rain??
And the seat could have been better...... kinda stands out and doesnt flow with the bike, when looked at from behind..
Like the way the foot pedals have been shifted into position

BTW, is this a 500 or a 350?? Any engine mods? if not, then any broader rubber will become resistance.

But, it has come around pretty well....... gotta appreciate the effort!

Default The 535cc bullet in Kerala..

Thats some good mod done there..Any performance mods?? Guess the silencer being downwards is to make it go parallel to the slimming fuel tank... Looks pretty kool though..

Hey this was done by a guy called Jose in Kerala.. X-Bhp had some pics(I guess).. This was put up here at a motor show..

The rear wheel is that of an opel astra.. It was a 350cc std bullet moded and made to 535cc(Right number??).. Its paint job doesnt appeal me that much.....

Here are some pics(Real bad quality)
Bullet Pic1
Bullet Pic2

Anybody had the correct specs??!!

Awesome cosmestic work. But will it run fine?? Even the biker build off guys have problems with their bike when they run cross country on such good roads. Hope it does...

Yikes,

Bullets tend to do that... my friend's `66 (<yeah thats the excuse) 350cc wiring short circuited JUST after he stepped of the bike (luckily) and the whole wiring harness glowed red within a few seconds and caught fire. He managed to keep anything else from catching fire though, so in the end - a much needed new wiring harness.
