Zebras are common in with Mumbai Traffic Police. Will try to get a picture of one.

The Roadking is very well modded, except for the headlight, which looks to have come straight from an auto and chromed,

+1 to that. Attention to details is good. Looks like the front end too is lifted from some BaHoSuYa motorcyle.

Is it??! Ok. The guy said he spent around 40K to achieve what he achieved. I think the head light dome gives it more character..

Not a bad job. The speedo could have been better. A round speedo would look better in that position.

Yes not a bad job, but I still can't figure out why people here change their stock handle. Almost every other RX here has its handles changed to that what we can see. OK I can understand a bigger headlight for more powerful light but...

I can tell you that. A wider handle shows off the biceps better.

It depends on what it is changed to. Some guys like the old Enfield Fury's short handle, because it's lower and narrower, and gives a forward leaning riding position. I had one of those on my old KB125. Loved it. The Bullet's wide and low handle is another popular option.

Then there are two-piece handles which ape the big bikes. Then there are guys who fit apehanger handles which allow the riders to hang on to them and lean back.

On a serious note, the side rubber things, were they ever an OEM or always an accessory?
I have seen them as OEM on the older Machismos.

Wider bars make it easier to maneuver in slow city traffic speeds.

Is it??!! I have never seen one in Maharashtra (Pune or Mumbai).
And both have their respective amount of irritating traffic.
Has anyone ?!!
