OH MY GOD !

Totally drool worthy. Awesome headlight. Got to agree with bazinga, the chrome looks out of place. Matt black would gel better with the current theme.

By the way, have you ridden the bike in wet conditions yet? Got a feeling the mud guards wouldnt do a decent job of protecting you from the water spray.

Also, is the rear light bright enough under the sun?

Realized that after posting, some more pics of the bike please.

I think battery is just behind the engine ?

Between the swingarm, right behind the gearbox?

How do you get the fuel pump to run without a battery?

Looks exactly like the title of the thread. Is this the complete bike or are there few more details added that we are yet to see.

How easy/difficult is it to get the sub-from for the Enfield. Care to share the cost please.

Its great how removing the boxes makes so much of a difference to the look of the bike and you can see the mechanics so clearly. A great look.

I know it's true to the barebone theme but the bike does not look good at all, in fact the rear half looks downright horrible.

But then again, I'm known to be out of touch with the times when it comes to fashion

Hehe, I was also looking for the battery and the other usual junk that is there on an RE.

Nice build I must say. Any idea how much total weight was reduced?

Brilliant job, excellent execution from vision to the final product. I have been thinking about this for a long while and the only downside for doing anything like this was the time commitment.

Just a couple of suggestions
- the exhaust - if that could be re-routed upwards under the seat
- and, the rear suspension - perhaps a monoshock

to me these would complete the picture, miminalist, mass centered, light and nimble - heaven

Congratulations - on a great piece of work, enjoy the ride, good wishes and happy miles

Where have you hidden away the battery?
