Check out.
the bottom part (below the tail light) looks a bit bare. a small mud guard would have done the trick. overall, nice work Tejas!

bro, if you can't appreciate someone's hardwork, at least don't ridicule it.

Request elaborate on 'Dual Pair of Rear Shock Absorbers'.
Comprehension in the photographs is difficult. Have two shockers fused to create one?
There are two pairs of shockers...one is visible on the sides..the other pair is under the seat (not visible).
The single pair turned out too soft so had to put another pair to support the increased weight.

Yes actually the lower one is real, the one above that coming from near the carburetor is a dummy.

Thanks, I'll see which mudguard will suit. I dont think the alluminium mud guard from Bajaj XCD will suit the bike... ??

Saadistic great custom job man congrats, did you change the rake and what is the length of the front forks?
Front forks are made or purchased and how did you make the linkages for rear brake and gear shift? Great job again.

Regards

Thanks Pranav. As I mentioned in my post I did not alter the chassis. The front forks are that of a RE T-Bird, the fork pipes are Delhi-made & are 3'' longer than the originals. So the rake angle has changed only due to the length of the forks, nothing done to increase the angle.

For the rear brake, we custom made it to fit the length of the bike using a simple metal rod n designing it on a lathe machine. As for the gear shifter its the stock shifter from an Enticer with some custom modifications to fit the bike. Let me know if u need anything else.

saadistic-your bike has got lots of sharp edges which can be dangerous to yourself and others,the foot pegs looks like you have taken it from some spear.

As for me my first geared bike was a hero honda CBZ brought by my father after a lot of convincing. i had my eye on the karizma but my lean and tiny frame(that time) didnít allow me to pursue the karizma dream further. I used to ride on my sisters bajaj Sunny to Jr. College and a good result in my 12th prompted my dad to gift me a bike. Believe me he had his eyes on a TVS Scooty for me. Man, I donít know what would have happened if he had brought me the TVS (no offence to scooty owners here).

Anyway fast forward to my college days. I took Automobile designing as my stream and kept on looking at my CBZ with a devilish smile. I started getting more serious into it. So while most of my buddies were partying and busy finding girlfriends, i started working in a workshop, understanding bikes and mechanicals. The workshop owner Mr. Nigel lopes a member here, initially didnít like me floating around his workshop and used to shoo me away.

But I made it a point i stuck around and I got my CBZ to his workshop then. He is an expert with fiberglass and made his own designed panels on bikes. I got my mildly modded CBZ then(read handle bars, mono suspension and a free flow) to him. He inspected the bike and suggested that, i throw away all the cheap stuff away from my bike .They were none other than the mods I had done.

From there started a story of my bike which got modded to one of my dream projects . Now I use her to commute to office (which is a good 40 kms) sometimes when I find the car too hectic to drive in the traffic.

I am attaching a pic of mine on the bike...
The list of mods include:-

1. Custom fiber glass body
2. Front 120 section tire with a working dual disc tokico set-up.
3. Custom front forks and triple clamps machined from aluminum
4. rtr handles and mirrors
5. An Air-intake designed on the tank which leads to the air filter box(CAI)
6. Free flow exhaust and air filter.
7. Custom made rear rim (from chopping a tavera rim into two and welding together) shod with a 150 section rear tire and a rear disc set-up
8. An over bored head with a 225 cc piston and modded fuel jets for compensating on the tires and additional weight.
9 custom made chain sprocket mechanism.

and many more...phew
So the final result is an Italian design inspired, retro looking hero honda cbz. I made it a point that the bike is tagged as a cbz. You can see that in the pic. As for the big question the bike sprints very well with the engine mods and most of the power can be felt in the mid power band.

i hope you guys liked the final result. Cheers everyone. More pics in my garage...

Now thats what you call a good mod job Kunjaril! Its looking beautiful and everything seems to be well proportioned. This bike should be an ideal example for people who dont know what a good modification is.
Any plans to plonk mags? They should enhance the looks further.

its hardly a CBZ anymore! nice work though!

questions:
- with the exhaust haning down under the engine, don't you have GC issues?
- with those big tires, front and back, are you having problems cornering?
- how is the stopping on the dual-disc?
- is that the air scoop stuck on the tank?
- how is the handling after putting a RTR handle? i still have the stock handle; its wide, but gives a good balance.

more pictures please.

Hi Iron hawk , i have answered your question as follows
- GC issues are not at all there even on the toughest of terrains.
-yes the big tires have made it difficult to handle at slow speeds, but i am completely used to the set up now.
- yes the air scoop is not a dummy. it is routed to the air filter box under the tank.
-Straight line riding is much better.The riding position is not uncomfortable either. although not much can be gathered due to the wider tire up front.

you will find pics in my garage.. anyways i am putting up one more to show the place ment of the exhaust end pipes.. check the bottom of the rear panel.

That is a nice mod konjaril. The air scoop idea is great. What is it that you did with your rear tyre. I am concerned about the spokes there. I think they should always be arranged straight. They look crooked to me, or is it my viewing angle.

You could also have done a bit more about the headlight (this is just a personal choice). Ride safe.

Hi chip, thanks for the comment. the rear rim spokes are bent in a very uniform manner to enter the rims orifaces which were drilled by us. the work is done by an expert on spokes and rims. the wheel is so perfect and true that you wont bilieve its a hand job.
