True to its name, the Skeletor shows a metal skeleton shaped to form a motorcycle. This is one machine that Nicholas Cage can use for the next iteration of Ghost Rider.

The 8 Ball, Bobber from Rajputana Customs is built around the 350cc unit construction engine, and used a modified Electra frame. The donor motorcycle is a Royal Enfield Electra. The Bobber is a single seat boulevard cruiser meant to be brought out for a leisurely ride around town on a breezy saturday afternoon.

Fat tyres and a raked front end give the 8 Ball, Bobber Harley Davidsonesque looks. The motorcycle costs about 2 lakh rupees to put together, and this is excluding the cost of the donor bike.

Bangalore based Bulleteer Customs builds custom motorcycles based on Royal Enfields. The custom motorcycle outfit prides itself on building everyday motorcycles that look swell and that are comfortable to use. The Streetrod build catapulted the custom bike maker into the limelight, what with its founder riding all the way from Bangalore to Goa, to attend the Rider Mania.

This ride demonstrated the Streetrod’s everyday usability and sharp handling. The latest version of the Streetrod, dubbed the Kattana, is build around a 500cc unit construction engine. The motorcycle looks very edgy, deriving inspiration from the Suzuki Katana of yore. The front is especially fetching to look at, with a Darth Vader-like headlamp that houses twin projectors.

Actor John Abraham commissioned Rajputana Customs to build him a board track racer based on the Royal Enfield UCE500 platform. Dubbed the Light Foot, minimalism is the name of the game on this build. The Light Foot looks light and is actually lighter than stock Royal Enfield motorcycles. Shorn of unnecessary clutter, the motorcycle uses a girder suspension up front, in line with the board track racing theme. A single leather seat, rear set footpegs and clip-on handlebars add to the board tracker looks of this motorcycle.

Mean Green Customs of Bombay have used a 350cc unit construction engine and a modified Royal Enfield frame to come up with the Nevermore. The Nevermore 350, according to its customizers, is a stealth motorcycle with minimalist and edgy design cues dominating the theme.

The resultant is a sharp motorcycle, literally and figureatively. The Nevermore 350 chopper seats one, and gets an all-black paint finish with the headlamp finished in yellow. Lighter than stock, this custom build sits lower and is quite a looker.
