Hi MPower,
I've had the windscreen for almost a year now, and I've had absolutely no reason to complain till date. I was skeptical about it initially, thinking it would reduce my speed or effect the mileage, but, none of it was true.

It doesn't help stopping the wind from hitting your face, unless the rider's too short for it! However, it definitely helps in keeping you (your chest area, to be more specific) guarded from flying debris, stones or mud splashes from vehicles in front. No scratches yet, in spite of the fact that little stones have hit it on many occasions now!

Good job done,debaditya. The bike definitely has the classic cruiser look,and the quality of work seems to be excellent.

Hey Debaditya, A perfect cruiser bike with all necessities. The king size rear tyres are looking cool and the 2 side bags are absolutely a must for every cuiser. Are these the leather ones??

3.5years and still looking new! Must say, nicely maintained. How much did you spend on the complete Mod??

Thanks a lot guys for your compliments. Really appreciate it.

@Nitin: I got this job done at a not-so-big place in Bangalore (in case you know the city, these guys are in the JC Road area). I was very impressed with the guys' honesty about the spares, and not trying to force me into buying any and every thing they had!

@funkydude: The side bags are all leather, including the small one at the back. The seat cover was customized to go with the bags' style.
As for the maintenance, yes, I did all I could to ensure it's a single rider bike all through. If anybody wanted to get a feel of the bike, he would have to be satisfied in being a pillion! That's what I always ensured.

I spent a total of around 12k for the entire modification. That includes 4k for the rear tyre alone! In the next couple of months, I've planned to add mags to it. Also, I'm thinking of custom designing a full sized bag for the back (to help me keep my helmet n stuff).

These are future plans, so, no surety yet.

Sounds good,deb. Any mods to the engine planned? Its a pretty reliable bike,so I'm guess you'd want to leave the drive train as original as possible.

Nothing for now, Nitin. I would be more than happy to leave the engine untouched.

At the onset, I was more interested in aesthetic changes, rather than any major engine mods.

Default My latest Custom Creation

TeamBHP rocks,

the only place where you get to see customs from every corner of India, dont get to interact much but this is the place to be.

This is "ANGLO", Built for a fried of mine in NAGALAND, he's a great fan of everything Classic Brit and wanted a classy stylish motorcycle that can fit into quite a tight budget so here she is.......

140 rear, custom swingarm, custom fenders, custom handcrafted seat, custom tank, extended gears, increased rake angle up front and an Old School custom paintjob makes this bike a tribute to the "Anglo-Indian" and Royal Enfield the "True Anglo-Indian Motorcycle"

Hope you like it, let me know if you do or if you dont, your input is and has always been my greatest support.

That's a superb design there, Bulleteer! I love it. Any difference in handling with that rear tyre?

Nice looking Bullet you got there, Bulleteer! IMO, the seat ought to have had a smoother flow ( so that the abrupt transition from the rider's segment to the pillion could be avoided). Good job, none-the-less!

Default a friends chopper

hi guys !

This is my friends Bull Chopper. He made it about 5 years back ( approx ). He bought two brand new CI 500 & made these. Spent a fortune & some guy from dreamriders.co.in stole his design. This was also featured in Auto expo, I guess this also got featured in Xbhp & some Bike magazine too. hope you enjoy.
