In case you’ve missed delectable looking custom Royal Enfield motorcycles from India and other parts of the world, here’s Part I, and here’s Part II. Today, we’ll bring you five more droolworthy Royal Enfield motorcycles, in Part III of our continued coverage of retro rides on two wheels.
JC Moto’s Barebone 500

The Barebone is just that, a stripped out 500cc UCE Royal Enfield Classic meant to be a fast daily rider that’s also fun on the dirt. A scrambler for the road, this motorcycle has been built by Joshua Crasto of JC Moto. This bike has lost over 40 kilograms. Now, the 45 Nm of torque that the big 500cc single produces after being piped is serious stuff on a motorcycle that weighs about 140 kilograms. And all this torque is available low down considering that it’s a Bullet we’re talking about.

The Assault from Rajputana Customs is a custom built motorcycle based on the Royal Enfield Classic 500. This bike was built for a customer in New Delhi. The Assault is a distinct looker, a cross between a chopper and a board tracker. Upside down front forks, fatters tyres, new rims, a distinct headlamp, revised instrumentation and a new paint job and body work are the changes on this motorcycle.
Sideburn Royal Enfield Bullet 500
The Sideburn Royal Enfield Bullet 500 is a street bike out and out, and a gorgeous one at that. This custom job harks back to the era when motorcycles were simple machines, shorn of all the excesses that modern bikes have. Top draw components have been used all around, right from the front suspension that comes from Paioli to the Bimota triple clamp and a 4 pot rear disc brake. Excel 19-inch rims with Honda CRF450 hubs, Maxxis tyres, a custom built hard tail suspension, a carburetor conversion, a custom fuel tank and of course that beautiful paint job, make for the other parts on this minimalist motorcycle.
