If properly worked out,this bike would be one of the fastest made Indian Bikes. I hope the owner does it.

Well the simple answer to why is that because he wanted it and he can do it.It was the owners and the workshop's decision."Style hai"
This was the answer what i got.

And frankly when you're doing a custom bike the answer to every "why" is "because i can".Simple.

Moreover where do you get stiffer springs in india? Moreover can you imagine the cost that it would set back the owner with.

This bike was made with a minimum Budget in mind.The owner is not a super rich kid.He's a simple working man.A great guy.

Every sunday the bike is worked serviced by the owner himself.There have been a few changes now.The exhausts are way better.Twin chromed like the Intruder.and some more tit bits have been changed.

But believe me if the bike is standing at a distance then no one can say its not a proper imported cruiser.The fit and finish is amazing and the integration of the Engine is amazing.Not like a bot on feel that you get in most of the mod jobs.This feels like a bike made in a factory.


The guys at Engineer Redefine are very good at thier work.I get most of the work on my bullet done from them.Good nice guys with very modest prices.

This is a great effort indeed, does the maker rides it often? Any issues faced?

check out this link for more info in quad front shocks.

the world famous NEANDER 1400 TURBO-DIESEL uses quad front shocks too.
Attachment 423553
I hope it rides well too, if you notice, the shocks stator part are joined in NEANDER while in the M800 one they are not, which means if the two shock on same side &/or opposite side are not in sync you will have disaster waiting to happen.

@Navpreet - Buddy, cool!!! I never said I didn't like or underestimated his effort or had a slightest doubt on skill. I only meant to say that, his motorcycle would've been more beautiful to have just 2 suspension in the front. And also just wanted to understand why wouldn't any alternatives (that I could think of) help instead of using quads.

Yes, I do strongly AGREE, its looking good, it looks like an imported cruiser & the efforts are more than appreciated.

Aagree i just stated the answer to your why question.I hope you didn't take the tone of the reply as a harsh one.It was never meant to be.

Its a simple thought that i believe in.The question "Why" always has only one answer-"Because i can".No technicalities.No other explanations.

Jeepster I will try and get them to tbhp but these are rather old school guys with less of the internet thingy.Will try and get some nice pics next time i meet up with them though.

Sorry for reposting in this thread.............but I am really interested in getting touch with the people from Engineer Redefined , Dehradun.

The Steel Rhino is a runaway success for its owner,
Now one of my friend's is also interested in a custom chopper with specs like that of this bike.

I need some specifications:
1.What bike chassis has been used ?- I guess a Bullet.My friend believes in getting an auctioned Army bullet for this job.

2.Is the fuel tank built, or is sourced from another bike ?

3.What are the size of those tyres ?

4, How can this engine be mounted so precisely without any loss of stability for the bike- its a very neat job.

5.Can the people behind Steel Rhino build custom choppers like this on request or share their knowledge for assisting a similar venture ?

6.Also, my friend hopes to use the Tata Nano engine- which would be the diesel version to get it done on fuel front too with the torque a chopper should have.....

7. Finally, how much did the Steel Rhino cost to be built up ?

Need just information for, so if I get any contact(email or website ) of the people behind the Steel Rhino, it would be great.

IMO its a rd350 chassis

2.Is the fuel tank built, or is sourced from another bike ?

custom hand made.

3.What are the size of those tyres ?

no mention of rim size but 140 fromt & 170 rear. (IMO they look like 15" or 17")

4, How can this engine be mounted so precisely without any loss of stability for the bike- its a very neat job.

hmmm..

5.Can the people behind Steel Rhino build custom choppers like this on request or share their knowledge for assisting a similar venture ?

they have a workshop so i think they can do another project.

6.Also, my friend hopes to use the Tata Nano engine- which would be the diesel version to get it done on fuel front too with the torque a chopper should have.....

tata nano dosenot have diesel engine, yet.

7. Finally, how much did the Steel Rhino cost to be built up ?

4L+.

Need just information for, so if I get any contact(email or website ) of the people behind the Steel Rhino, it would be great.

they have not provided any contact.
my reply in bold.

IMO you should look at many custom bike builder in India.

I thought about fitting a car engine, precisely Maruti 800 in a bike since years!

And recently on seeing the low cost of Army Disposal Bullets (Under 25k), even I would be keen to take up a project as such!

And like MACH50 here, I too think, it would be much better to use a Tata Nano Engine.

I am just a kid (19), and have only imagined such stuff or seen on tbhp or TV.

But I don't understand, why are the expenses so high?

Used Maruti 800 Engines go for under 5k (As per my Mechanic), used Bikes should be 25-50k.
Then why is the Steel Rhino costing 4l+

IMO, Such projects make sense only when one has something REALLY nice (American Chopper Creed), really powerful (100hp+) or really cheap (under 60-70k)
The steel Rhino seems to have none! Then whats the feasibility of such projects? o.O

^^^ My god in my dreams also I can never think of having a complete tractor with the integrated hood in a bikes frame and if this is no edited pic then kudos to the designer to be able to do this and it still looks like a bike.
Is the tractor a massey fergusson one?
The tyres they can seriously pluck mud.
This is simply unbeatable. Imagine the torque a tractor engine creates and that being transferred to one single rear wheel of the bike.

Wow what a ride... imagine plonking it into first gear, what kind of a torque it will have... Viberations will be monstorous... but shatters tale bone and lower back would be the only side effect, I guess!!!
