TA-DA!!

Friends, Presenting you the Classic eternal beauty i.e. KB100 .

This beauty belongs to my Father in law and It got handed over to me after his demise. The bike was in running condition but restored it carefully with the help of a known mechanic from Bavdhan Pune. Now its my daily ride.

I cannot express the joy of riding this classic here in words.

P.S. If you see any Silver color KB100 running around SUS-Hinjewadi area in Pune, Its me!! Just give me a shout-out to know more about bike if interested.

Here's my coveted possession since last 20+ years. The chrome is all original, no rust whereas on the 7 year old activa it has already started peeling

I had lost out on participation in TeamBHP forum after I joined a TeamBHP (Mumbai and Navi Mumbai) Whatsapp group.
However I am back now.

My KB100 was almost scraped since I had not used it for over 2 years and 2017 I had two fractures on the foot (not a bike accident but a pedestrian walking accident )

I am now trying to source some parts like side panels cover (Plastic with original KB100 or K-Bajaj), Choke Lever (been keeping tab with junk yard owners in Mumbai), etc

Yes. It is an RE Explorer. Thanks, paragsachania.

Royal Enfield Explorer was made in 1980 with the collaboration of German bike maker Zundapp. The Enfield Explorer was powered by 49cc, 2-stroke, air-cooled engine mated with 3-speed manual gearbox. Even though it is a 50cc motorcycle, the Explorer had a top speed of 60 kmph. The explorer was very well known for it fuel efficiency on those days. It had an average mileage of 65 to 75 kmpl on city traffic and even recorded 90kmpl for a constant 30 kmph cruising.

Right, the Explorer. I had one in Bangalore, my first Indian bike, a.k.a. Zundapp KS50. Great little bike, a real featherweight with three gears, a chrome cylinder bore, etc. Mine, which I bought from an elderly owner retiring from riding, had the original little aero-bikini fairing and would do a terrifying 70kmph (with a tailwind). In Europe they had liquid-cooled, five-speed, disc-brake versions and in the Netherlands as of several years ago were commanding quite high prices. Smaller sibling of the Fury (KS175).
