Default What one should not !!

Can bet any length that if Manufacturers were to see this they would buy the bike back !! Incidentally a question for the experts, since I am a noob with bikes, is it even safe to be on this contraption considering all the extra weight and I am pretty much sure that the Balance of the bike is more than history !!

Another question is can the govt get this thing of the road for violation of some norm !!!


Best Regards,

Srinivas

Whoever put that in people's head that a Bullet is a "cruiser" and nothing more. Sad. Its also one of the reason why you find the 1980-2000 Bullet owners claiming that what they own is a "TRUE" bullet.

Anyways, its a good modification. Have you seen the Scrambler?!

These pics were taken long back, in the VGA cell phone camera era hence the poor quality of the pics.

It is a Royal Enfield with Honda City headlights, Honda Dio tail lights, a pulsar tank, after market Ambassador mirrors and the usual twin exhausts.
Does Wierd get any wierder than this??

The best bit???? It is owned by a Doctor who rides it 32kms a day, to the hospital and back, at night, of course.
Dear Vivekji05,
Thank you very very much for showing us this. This BY FAR is the ugliest thing i have seen in my life. Now i know how ugly can ugly get.
This is as retarded as retarded can possibly get. This doctor (i think he needs to visit one, make that two or three docs) has no sense of respect for any of these cars / bikes he has taken these parts from. He has really disrespected the Royal Enfield bullet.

This goes in my books as the worse mod job ever.

Lovely mod.

Okay, I find the bullet to be practical. BEFORE YOU REACH FOR THOSE PITCHFORKS, the twin exhaust was unnecessary, and maybe the colours might be unsavoury to one's palate. But I think every bit was modded for the 32km night trip. The seat looks comfy, notice the horn(I'm sure it's loud). The rear mirrors too might be useful when one's crouched on those handlebars(I used to prefer a more upright position for long distance). And theres the headlights. Now that's someone who's done what others would wish.("I wish my motorcycle had lights that'd blind them highbeamers off the road"). I think this guy deserves praise for carrying it through.

@midlifecrisis : Bullet made bikes exactly for the reasons you mentioned. It is safe, the seats are comfy, the horn is loud (if one can't hear a bullet coming, probably he is deaf).
I thoroughly believe that the above mod job could be carried out only by a person who has lost all his 6 senses.

Cheers,
AC

P.s: there are many other things, like the pulsar tank, the wierd front mud guard, the rear honda dio tail lights, the twin exhaust.
I travel 40 km everyday, and i travel late nights mostly, I never felt the need to do the above. This doctor needs to be given an award.

Man, people tour on stock Bullets day and night across India! 32KM will not even warm up the Bullet engine! (er.. just kidding bout warming up part )

There are much nicer looking comfortable seats available for the bullet. So no excuse for the doc.

The horn is called a wolf horn in this part of the world. It's usually found on a college goer's bike and used mostly while passing chicks There are louder and better horns available. No excuse for the doc again.

Even stock mirrors provide very good visibility if adjusted properly. No excuse doc.

Amby headlamp assy in the stock Bullet casquette and a 55/60 headlamp (after upgrading to latest 4wire alternator) will light up the road and the countryside well enough. He can opt for HID if that's not enough. Doc.. what's your excuse now?

I think he really really deserves a praise for riding that thing in public!

No explanations can save the doc for applying cosmetics the King of all Bikes in India. The Bullet is in the right sense Royal bike, all those mods are signs of a pathetic taste & lot of spare moolah.

I guess the only reason why he rides it only in the dark because he is ashamed of it. He might have deliberately opted for the night shift at the hospital so that he can use his bike when people don't get to see it.

I hope he isn't reading this

Well come on guys the doc was makin a Royal Enfield "goldwing" out of everything. Gosh that is a bullet 500 that is being almost killed by that doc. I think he should be given an enema with petrol and then light it up!...

See: It has nice alloys too. It seems it is a Yamaha bike.

Looks like a Yamaha XS 650 reclaimed by nature.
