Default Modified freaks!!! (Custom make lovers)

Dear Friends,

I am 31yrs old living in Mangalore , Karnataka also An avid biker . I do have a bike of my own which is a 1978 make Royal Enfield Bullet. Making custom bikes has always been my dream; the same became my hobby and passion after viewing the series of OCC which gave me a lot of ideas and inputs. Belowis first look of my bike for you all friends. It is my own bike which i have modified 4 times earlier , this has been my latest beauty.I do extend my services to serious bike lovers.

I would like to confirm that the engine has not been modified and that I have worked only on the looks as well as the suspension (technically).This modification is completely handmade as there are no sophisticated instruments to do the same.

Friend is request if you could sincearly put some comments for the same and the reason for starting a New thread is that all Custom freaks come to a comman line of action also cos i had posted my work in a existing thread on modification , but did not get any responce from any one.

cheers:

Welcome to team-bhp Custom-Guru,

Looks neat.

Hi, nice one.

Few queries. How does it sound? Wont the performance take a hit cos of this silencer design?
Could have been a bigger headlight.

Wow! that is a nice job! But a few suggestions, Get a bigger head lamp, as the current one isn't gelling with the rest of the cruiser low slung bike look.

Try to get some bigger front shock absorbers (as in Thicker looking tubes) as the current ones look puny when looked upon with that huge front mud guard.

A very good job, none the less.

Nice job on the bike. Is a sure attention grabber, but not a chik magnet for sure.

Saw a similar Bullet in Bangalore. The owner was desperate to sell it off but was quoting a lakh and a half for it

Bike looks neat. my suggestion get bigger headlamps, change the silencer to a chunkier looking one and normal spoked wheels with a good shine should make it look even better. Maybe add a foot rest platform like those you find in other foreign cruisers. Handle bar could be better IMO.

Hi Custom-Guru, an awesome effort ! Although I'm not a big fan of the antics of the Teutuls, I like their end products.

Have you thought of moving the foot controls forward to get that typical hog riding stance ? And, is one of the exhausts a dummy ? The bike must be plenty loud with those straight pipes !

Excellent work & looking like a chopper. I think you have put those small headlights seeing choppers.
