A sweet restoration and that white colour looks really good.

I hope that you have installed a good looking pair of rear view mirrors too...

Is that tyre lifted out from a mini tractor and ground smooth in lathe.
Honestly, i have seen drag spec Hayabusas with saner rubber on them.

These kind of enormous tyres negatively affect each and every aspect of a bike (apart from curiosity of onlookers).

It looks like carbon fibre but it isn't. No doubt it's an amazing bike which helped me complete my crazy ride. The bike has an amazing stance. The height of the seat is almost as high as any Tourer (Versys 650 and Tiger)

A couple of pics of me with the Beast!!

Very Neat, White, Black and silver has gone very well. My brother owns one in my home town in Madurai, Will share him this restoration and let him get inspired.

And may I ask what is that orange indicator like thing under the Fuel tank ?

A few words about this build -

After Yamaha chopper build we are now becoming desperate and think
of making expensive bike from well known Australian company KTM.

This project took almost a year to finish because we also had to catch up on games of
thrones episodes.

Bike was stripped of all plastic parts.
Enfield tank was installed to add street cred among leh ladakh riders.
The tank was painted RED.

Vertical stripe was added to increase visual weight.
Chain guard was removed to add emotional lightness.
Frame was painted black to strengthen moral fibre.

Handlebar is kept stock because Australians drive on same side of road as Indians.

Supercharger added to charge phone so we can take ossum pics while weekend riding with our very unique 15 member 'by invitational only' bike riding group (we stop for chai every one
hour [We have one opening now as one member was removed as he forgot to switch on GoPro
before ride.]).

Rectangular headlights were used to increase low end Torque during flat lining at escape
velocity.
*
And after careful calculation, the number 49 was added at the correct angle to reduce drag.

Since alloy wheels reduce weight, we made the entire wheel out of solid alloy to decrease as
much weight as possible.
*Please call us 'Bro' so we become legit bike customisers.

Funny explanations as always 'Bro'.

Couple of deviations though, Austria and Australia are closer in spellings but are nowhere near each other.
Tank colour is appearing close to Orange (KTM Orange rather), hence bike likely to fly at drags. Actually Red colour makes anything go faster, but this tank coming from RE had possibility of adding elephant characteristics so current colour is better .

That has to be one of the best explanations ever! The bike in itself doesn't look bad, though the headlamps look out of place in the design.

Amazing mod Hamza and love the way you explain each or the mods it's been almost a week that I have started considering a Cafe Racer build on my Duke 390. Yes the itch still remains - first the Machismo then the RX100 and now the Duke. Planning to keep the mechanicals and electricals/electronics stock and just fiddle around with the body work and panels and headlights, seats, handlebars.

Could you provide some "serious" details on the Enfield tank / fuel pump mechanism. Have you retained the original tank underneath?

Hamza, From the initial sketch you had posted on the FB page and the end product do not deviate and the end product looks way better than the concept sketch.
