Hi guys, take a look at my prized possession, a 1989 yezdi roadking which I bought a few months back, it was in immaculate condition, single owner. I added a few cosmetic touches and viola, what a beauty...!!! check this out...

Wonderful. This is one of my dream bikes. I used to have one (rather, my uncle's which was used by me, which unfortunately was sold off because I used to ride it) during my +2 days near around our home. It was just superb. It has macho looks unlike the new gen bikes.

BTW, where did you buy it from & how much did you pay? (Can I ask?)

Beautiful monster manjunag. You are one lucky soul, very very hard to find one of those 80s Roadkings, especially in this shape.

WOW - that bike is in EXCELLENT form. I have a 1996 Roadking - my first bike, bought it fresh from the YEZDI showroom in Hyderabad as soon as I got my first job - but it is has been in disuse for sometime now due to a carb problem. Your bike's photos inspire me to fix it up. Maybe a project for this weekend... hmm?

Enjoy your Roadking. I think that no other bike on the road compares to it in character, except the Royal Enfield Bullet. Start getting used to strangers asking about the bike when you stop at traffic lights

Cheers
Teja

You lucky guy, I am still repenting for selling mine which was kept in a better condition than yours. HAd to sell it as I had a slipdisc, so no bikes for me. Take of her buddy and dont sell her. These are real beauties.
