Royal Enfield and Harley Davidson brands were launched only a few years apart in the early 1900s. Both the brands now have a global presence and have made a cult following around the world. The Royal Enfield brand majorly caters to the buyers looking at affordable bikes, while the Harley-Davidson serves the premium customers. Many Royal Enfield owners put their machines under the knife to make them look like Harley-Davidson bikes. Here are five such Royal Enfield to Harley-Davidson transformations.
