Congrats Dusom for thinking of something like this. Royal Enfield did foray into Diesel once, but not to much use. The product failed, though you still see a few rattling across the road. They definitley did not venture into Turbo though.
Really looking forward to your brain child and how it finally culminates on two wheels.
Keep it going captain

I think RE failed with there diesel bike because that time diesel technology was not good enough to compete with petrol.also diesel wasn't that lucrative.
Now quite a few companies are planing it, including indians.


My project news is that rear wheel hub is now replaced with all aluminium, saving some weight. Also bought a 240 metzeller. Rite now I am out of town attending my new job 'will replace rear wheel to proper motorcycle one. Eagle f1 has been totally burned , thanks too a full 2 minutes burnout as my friends wanted to see some smoke!

MJD 1.3 can also be a contender.Procuring in larger number will significantly reduce the cost for engines and transmission.
I am sure once the bike goes under a CNC it will be lighter and with better build quality. Front End to be Imported from UK (Rocket 3).
Make 3 bikes, get them Homologated (India or UK) , and limited production run of 50-100 bikes can be started (no assembly line required,CVO style), Each unit with 1.6l u2 hyundai to cost around 4.5 -5 l bucks.
Is this thing even Doable? Graduating from Home made bike to Production cruiser?
suggestions please!


Can we talk about it bro? I have a similar project in hand .
PM me if interested.

Buddy,

Just ran into this thread and read it in one session! Never knew something like this existed nor did I think anyone could come up with something like this in his garage!

Hats off to such an endeavor. It takes a lot to come up with something like this and make it work. What is your plan with this bike now?

Hope you still have the speed records on your radar for some day!

Cheers,
Adi

Money which was being saved, suddenly blown on a harley..
I am silently working on small improvements, specially on brakes and weight reduction..
In hope that suddenly one day I would find pile of money and would go to salt.
Bike is still running fine, did not have any breakdown whatsoever since it was first driven, I still take it out on weekend nights.

Awesome, brilliant, bloody amazing!! Words fail me.
A drool worthy project, if there ever was.

Achieving what you set out for would only by the cherry. The cake is the journey there, wouldn't you say so?

I don't think I've been more inspired than this before, to work hard towards my own dreams.

I wish you all the very best with this. I am glued.

Cheers!
Sam

P.S. Found the link to this thread on your HD ownership thread.
I urge you to get this thread better promoted somehow. Sponsors should come running.
