This is as good as any scrambler project i have seen. Amazing stuff.
The only thing missing i suppose is the parallel running exhaust but this too looks smashing.
Kudos nomads.

Looks absolutely smashing, wish something similar was available in the showrooms

The front no plate and rear view mirror look little out of place. The color is spot on.

Default Duke's new avataar by Cafe Nomads!

Amazed. Looks brilliant, with everything in right proportions. RVM design/colour could've been different. But overall, this is a cent job! Good job, Nomads!

I hope scooters fit in this thread.
If not, Mods, please move it to a relevant thread.

Saw this activa while walking in an alley to my parked car.

It looked very nice. Unique yet subtle.

Debadged and highlted with bronze plating

This looks like a modified Thunderbird. Saw this at a traffic stop in Koramangala.

No ... that's a first generation Thunderbird 350 with the backrest taken off. You can see the raised and angled tank and the contours of the AVL engine.

That is the UCE engine. If you notice, the chain assembly is on the right, which was not a feature in the AVL engine TB's. Not a first generation TB.

First post on the website! I'd love to showcase my ride. It's a 2012 model Pulsar 200 NS with the following functionality / performance / aesthetic mods:

Ported cylinder head by Race Concepts.
UNI pod filter with a 120 size main jet and stock 15 size pilot jet, and a custom crankcase breather (mod done at home).
Single piece handlebar with custom raisers.
Weight reduction from a lot of places on the bike.
140/60-17 size rear tyre biased towards acceleration.
Tail tidy (made at home).
Tank decals.

She's running nearly 26 Bhp compared to the stock 23.5 Bhp. Couple that with the shorter gearing effect of the rear tyre and low weight, she zips off to 140+ with ease. She out-accelerates a CBR250R upto 120 km/h after which the CBR starts leading due to it's 50cc advantage. The single piece bar mod by itself, shaved off 4-5 kilos off the front end, and due to the low CoG now, the cornering and handling ability has also been improved. The UNI gives an amazing ride experience with it's induction noise and midrange / top end torque improvement. With all these mods, it's run 25000 kms and the odo reads 41000 kms as of date, and still runs smooth (for a Bajaj bike) and returns a fuel efficiency of 35 km/l.

Hello 'the_lone_wolf',
Mohit here.

The mods on your pulsar really seem amazing.
I also own a 2012 model 200NS.

Can you tell how much that uni pod filter cost you?

My ride is also about to undergo some serious modification stuff.

Some of those decals could have been avoided IMO.

I usually don't post anything in this thread; but, making an exception just because I wanted to share my sheer joy of watching this motorcycle. What a wonderful, artistic, tastefully, simple yet elegant, beautifully worked out, isn't it? Its a sheer beauty, I could watch it all the day, how about you?

Complementing the ride in your pic with one from Bangalore. This is with full front end of Duke nicely transplanted into a RoadKing.
