exactly what i am trying to say. instead of making it look like a TB, he could have gone for TB itself, if he was keen on it.

A few suggestions for improving a Bullet -
Best oil is always coconut oil. But get the best refined variety and not anything cheap.
Best way to improve "sound" is to get a good quality ghattam and get your friend to play it sitting pillion. In the absence of a real ghattam player you can consider getting a good quality stereo player.
Best way to improve pick up. Why? Just pick the bike up and run.
Just kidding man and this is how I try to control my anger, that is, by trying to turn the whole thing into a joke.
Doing what you have done to your Bullet is like adding a moustache on the face of lord Krishna. Or chopping off the tail of lord Hanuman. Or putting an Armani suit on the Nataraj image.
What I mean is - you don't try to change what is heritage.

@sudipto it is understood that you are a big bull lover and you have a great sense of humour, but kindly do not belittle any one here. This is a forum, and probably the guy justt wanted everyone opinion on how to make his bike better. I did no find anything wrong it.

Kindly take my reply in the right spirit and attitude.

Cheers

I do.
I love all things old and I love all things new. But I don't like it when you try to make an old classic into something new. It looks forced and fake. That's all. Dancing Nataraj is fine. Levi's is fine too. But you can't put the Levi's on Nataraj - can you?
By the way AC 427 - just saw your garage. Your "old soldier" is a stunner man. That's what a Bullet is. And that's what it should be.
Built like a gun and runs like a Bullet.

but there are many wanna-be bullet's modified mercilessly to look a like Tbird or more to a fake harley.last day ,when cruising back from Coimbatore to my town ,I saw a Bull which got modified to fit a very big front Tyre!and bike looks like a BIG Tbird to be specific.One thing to note .people of age between 18-25 may want bull to Tbird to have some flaunt value in with their girls and others.

PS :I got a bullet electra intact .

@sudipto, like you even I love things to be simple, old school, retain the old world charm.

Anyways as thanks for appreciating my bike and only 1 recommendation to our Ansu, whatever you do on your bull, just pull back and then ask, does it look classy ? if yes then you have done your job well

Cheers
