This transformation needs claps and a pat on the back ! Good job.
The best part was the bike parked in the living room. How cool is that !

Are there any onerous restrictions in shipping an Indian vehicle and not just a stock one but a modified one for use in the US? I presume you need to have the safety and other aspects checked before the vehicle is road legal in the US.

Mods - Please delete this if it is OT or not suitable for this thread. Thank you

Awesome outcome chandrajit...she looks great Just a comment/suggestion. Is it just me or does that rear cowl look a little too bulky. IMO the rear cowl sould be more flushed with the mudguard. Anyways looks are subjective Congrats once again!

Amazing job sir!

Just one query, how easy/hard is a cafe racer to live with? It obviously can't be used as a daily ride, but is it as good to ride as it looks?!

If you can get used to all the attention, you'll get used to living with one.

*Family Jewels may disagree* :-)
