@ sajid33 : I never liked full fairing mods on Indian bikes....well there are several reasons...1stly there is a huge difference in the size of the wheelbase and length of the SBKs and Indian bikes. Width is also another factor. The mid-section or engine overhang (engine bay) is almost twice in length compared to Indian bikes. People try to lengthen the rear swingy to compensate and that looks even worse..You'll always miss the USDs in front and those skinny tires and puny engines....the list is long....but hey wait I'll ask myself to shut up since this is an RD350 which has enough brawn to meet that extra weight. Even though I would like a well maintained stock RD...still this is definitely a very good job...the front mudguard looks out of place though...oh forgot to mention very nice combination paint job. Overall looks very good.

And i have one more doubt that is if i fit a 130/70 17R pereilli tyres on the rear will there be any drop in pick up or mileage cause with custom rear tyre and the K&N filter i get a mileage of 55-60 in the city even on a rough drive i get a decent 55 so will affect the pick up cause of the weight of the the tyre?

Default the reply...

Yes the engine 70% of air inlet will be blocked by the fairing material but this will matter only when you take a ride for 30km or more continuously. This won’t cause a drop in pickup but your engine oil tends to dry sooner.

And i have one more doubt that is if i fit a 130/70 17R pereilli tyres on the rear will there be any drop in pick up or mileage cause with custom rear tyre and the K&N filter i get a mileage of 55-60 in the city even on a rough drive i get a decent 55 so will affect the pick up cause of the weight of the the tyre?

The more the radials thickness the more the mileage drop will come into play & may be around 3-4km and bit pick-up drop too.

I made this bike. Feel sad that the person is not taking care of it. This was my first modified bike. The frame is completely made of stainless steel and i assembled the frame from scratch.

Completely hand made... even the tank and the front springer shocks..

Wow! That bike deserves a seat in the weird & whacky house.

I can't believe the effort people take to build these bikes and eventually it'll turn out to be crappy looking. All those metal beating skill needs to be tapped and directed towards good things.

Looking at the angle of the cylinders looks more like a U-twin.
