well, guys here is my pimped up ride. I feel that pillion seat still needs some adjustment. A bit lower from rear end, would have looked better.

Shashank,

The crash guard on the rear is a life saver mate. Good move, to bolt that on.

Cheers,

Jay

Try getting a round rear mudguard. It'll gel well with these seats. Its not quite expensive. A local one should cost you around Rs 350. Original from Enfield costs around Rs 1k I'm guessing.

That would be too much mod for me. I am also thinking of putting a chrome finish carrier on the back.

No it doesn't. and this semingly small thing took quite some time to put in.

Shashank - I was thinking of getting a Headlamp Cap for my bull as well if it helps with a better fall of the beam.

Can you or any body for that matter, please tell me the difference with the cap and without it.

Jay, is the rear crash-guard just to save the pillion rider, or does it in someway protect the the rider too?

Its mainly for the pillion, but will give added safety to you and your bike too.

In a skid, the rear crash guard will make sure that your leg doesn't get caught under the motorcycle. This is a life saver.

Cheers,

Shashank,

Congrats for the nice looking ride. Reminds me of mine from the early eighties. I think your handle bar is a little too high. I used to have the same one and I loved it. I preferred this to the original ones. You should be able to rest the palms on the grips with your elbows slightly bend and without any stress on your shoulder muscle. That way you'll not be fatigued on long rides.

Ahaaaa, Shashank's bike's pics have finally ended the 'nasty' fight. RE STD 350, 500, Electra 5s, 4s, Machismo 500, 350 -- all these babies from RE stable are real beauties with personality, unlike the lifeless plastic bikes being flooded into Indian market!!!
Respect to all RE owners!!!
