350 Biker, that's a lovely bike you have got there. Brings back memories, the yezdi was the first bike I rode.
The finish is really good.

No such luck. The bike belonged to a friend, It was the first Motorbike I ever rode. I went on to own a KB 100 and have not been on a bike in a long time. Just loved the feel and sound of the Yezdi.

Dear Ranjit - can you please give me the address and contact number of "Ratnadeep"? My fiat bumpers are lying in Nasik, I need to get them chromium plated. Thanks in advance for the same.

Best regards,

The bike is looking good.....the Yezdi was such a popular bike back in the day.

My uncle had one and we would sit on the tank and he would take us for rides.

He had this little metal bar sticking out on one side of the bike at the rear and when you took a turn this bar would touch the road and sparks would fly ...totally cool ! And the Yezdi nameplate was fitted upside down to read ipzah !

I too had a KB100 the RTZ Delta version which I ogt as a gift from my dad when I finished my collage.....it was a cool bike and I had it fitted with mag rims with the front disc brakes from a Fury ....it was a cool bike.

Yup I coem across a lot of mention of 'Ipzah'!
Incidentally, 'wonder how many who 'created' this name knew the meaning of the original name Yezdi- taken from Jazdi (Run) in Czech.

Was this metal bar original or an add-on?

And I still happen to have the manual for your KB100 that you then gave me!

That metal bar was not original....its highly unsafe though as if it digs into the road the bike might flip.....you just had to graze it lightly on the tarmac.

Wonder what happened to my KB100....it had a cool reg number to AP9 430

I remember Mohammed Bhai and his friend Naval Girri had gone to the Yezdi factory and bought brand new Road Kings that they rode back to Hyderabad......that was just when the factory was winding down.......should ask Mohammed Bhai if he still has the bike !

Dear Sir,

You will be surprised but Ratnadeep is right next to your ex office

The first left turn after Mahindra Sona's 2nd gate takes you to Ratnadeep Electroplaters.

You are right Ranjit. However, now a days ratnadeep management has become too stiff to negotiate since they have almost stopped Industrial electroplating. These days they are mostly doing automobiles stuff only and have earned a good name in the industry. I was shown all the previous invoices when i tried to negotiate.

However, I am sure if DB Sir himself speaks to them, they will have an exception.

Dear Ranjit - thanks for your reply. Sadly, I now work 205 kms away from my "ex" (office!). . I have located a guy near my office here, let me see.

Incidentally, the mainstand of the Y/Js have a slightly extended foot on the left side, to enable easy access when lowering the stand. This extension grazes the road when taking acute left turns, leaving a beautiful trail of sparks! Wont dig into the road and flip you though
However, it wears out the stand though, causing a wobble when parked.

Cheers,
Rahul

Nice restoration job. Looking forward for the final pix. However, I would have suggested a post rain restoration to enjoy the bike everyday.

Please ensure that you clean all the crome parts with diesel every fortnight and if you happend to ride in rain then immediately after reaching home to avoid rusting problems.

Dear Sir,

Good to hear that you have been able to locate a guy near your existing place. Do let me know incase you need any help from here since I am still located close to your ex office in Nasik.
