I have seen quite a few bullets in Delhi and in McLeodganj with the same K&N you mentioned . I think this is the one. I am not too sure about this though.

Whoa that's a single sided swingarm!! A first of it's kind in india i guess... was it made or did they use a single sided unit from another bike? Can you post a full picture of the chop in profile?

That's not a K&N it's a K&N replica. I have one on my Bull.

Loved the way it has all been executed with the single sided swingarm, the disk setup, and the way the sprocket has been integrated with the wheel... The wheel also looks really good with the low profile tire..
Guys we really have to appreciate the quality of the work done by this guy.. Im very impressed

bike looks good i think,a better picture from the side like cadaver suggested would do justice,didnt fancy the color too, a much deeper color like a blackish tinted purple or wine red would be better for a chopper.
