WOW!! i am falling short of words right now. Beautiful execution. it does look like a big harley from the front. the only odd thing in the bike IMHO is the gap between the seat and the rear fender . it would have looked much better if the seat was blended in the rear fender. but then, the seat would become too low. i am sure you must have thought over this and hence the gap. hats off to you for the superb workmanship. your bike is truly top notch!

Hey, thanks pulsar guy,this thing works on 2 stage rear suspension system,1 stage is softer,keeping in mind our roads,the 2nd stage is towards the harder side.
the gap in pics reduces by about 30-40% as soon as someone mounts .
I will get some pics clicked with me on the bike,once someone is on ,rear mudguard gets much closer to seat.Thanks

Still some work is left, like wiring and lettering and stuff like that.

After dewali i will get the bike's name written on the tank and and some pinstriping or something

Brilliant execution! Looks top class and once the pending work is finished it should be an awesome ride.

PS: Is the rocket on the brick just for support or are you planning to have it on the bike??

Those ATM dummies are already fixed/bolted on both sides,those bricks were kept there while I working on side stand..in time to come they will be turned into ride's mufflers.

Wouldnt the rear tire cause a problem when you are on turns?

Changing tyre is only about money!this tyre can any time be swapd with 240 17 inch motcycle tyre. Moreover this one provides excellent braking and very stable highway ride,smoothing out smaller potholes very well. How good it is on twisties I will let you guys know when I take it for a spin beyond rishikesh.
It does ok even on turns,till you keep entry and exit speed in check and not play games with thrtl in middle of a corner.

Great execution. I am out of words.

The bike looks great. See if you can get rid of the white rocket. Proper rear tires will make it look even better.

Thanks everyone!,i would be turning the rockets into mufflers so they have to stay for now(atleast i find some other decent endcan). Diesel bike is also shaping up,and will end up looking quite similar.(seems its going to be just a bit longer ,may be about 5inches or so).
Infact any inline4 will eventually end up looking like this or better,depending upon the money spent on looks.

Where have you positioned the gear shift and what gear ratios you are running?

Gear shift is standard heel&toe shifter as in most of the motorcycles, ratios are stock,final drive ratio is 2.7 instead of 3.something as in Zen,so it goes upto 50odd kmph in first gear
