Default Modified RE Machismo 500

Here is a pic of my newly purchased and modded RE Machismo 500.
I did this on my spare time, so didnt get to much. I would like to call this Phase 1 of my many phases of modifications

Modifications done -
Custom Leather bags, Handlebars with Raisers, Custom low seats, Very Long (oh yeh) backrest, lowered rear shocks.

Check it out. Comments are welcome.

Thanks Nitin. I would love to do some more mods. The baby is still new. Only around 400kms and post 1st service! Dont know if I have to performance modify it just yet. Do suggest though.
Took me a while to figure out how to fix the saddle bags and get the handle bar on there. But as soon as I figure out how to get more dirty with the engine and exhausts, I will definitly get more stuff done.

Question, which is the best place to chrome parts? The engine right now has that stock metal color. I want it bright and shiney chrome!!

Letty - My matte finish bullet - not much modified but for the low slug seat and the matte green paint scheme.

She is an old lady, passed through many hands, and each previos owner have added bits and pieces that it is very hard to tell her age by looking at her.
I have tried to make her look gracefully old, but no plans to restore to her to her original state.

Hi Guys,

You would have seen my bull 350 on my previous post, i was cleaning up my harddisk and found these pics of my then modified '95 Roadking to a cruiser style, this was done way back even before the Eliminator was launched. Though i have brought it back to its orginal form now. Thought i would share it with you all.

There is a very similiar bike which i have seen opposite my house at ejipura very often. That again has MY registration, dont know the exact number though. By any chance you visit GG road at ejipura often. ?

Decent looking 350!Doesn't look shabby, or 'over done'. Black wheels blend with the color on the bike.
