The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is the best selling bike for the Chennai based manufacturer. Its retro styling and signature silencer note are among the major factors why it is so popular. Another reason why many youngsters buy it is to modify the bike, for which the Classic 350 is a great bike. Now Dirt Machine Custom Motorcycles have created a wild-looking bobber styled bike based on the Classic 350 which is mesmerising and overpowering at the same time. Painted in all black, this custom made bobber took around 45 days to get completed. Before we discuss more details of this build, take a good look at the bike and enjoy this beauty through these images.
Called the Rebel, this Royal Enfield Classic 350 based bobber is more wild than gorgeous. It looks like an outcast which has been destined to be a rebel, and hence the name. As one could probably make out by the images here, the ground clearance of the bike has been reduced for that typical bobber stance. The engine has not been tinkered with but has been painted all black to match the rest of the bike.
The front end has been equipped with twin-pod headlamps stacked vertically with a frame that seems to be dotted by silver metal pieces in order to give a badass look to the front end. Both the front and the rear rims are black powder-coated steel rims with 80 spokes setup. The rims are shod on with Michelin Pilot 120/70/19 on the front and Michelin Scorcher 150/80-16 at the rear.
The stock front forks have been replaced by upside-down units now with black paint on them. The handlebars and the single-piece instrument cluster pod are aftermarket units as is the single piece crash guard to give extra protection to the bike’s frame and the rider in case of an accident. Braking duties are done by disc brakes at both the ends with a four-piston caliper at the front and a single-piston caliper at the rear. Apart from the all-black paint job, this bike also features custo graphics and decals at several places like the rear fender and the fuel tank.
The fuel filler cap has been positioned on the side now. A single piece saddle has been added for enhanced bobber appeal. To accommodate the wider tire, a new custom made swingarm was made by the guys at Dirt Machine Custom Motorcycles. This swingarm also increases the length of the bike to some extent. Moving to the rear we see a mid chopped fender along with a blacked-out tail light. Last important bit on this bike is its custom mad silencer pipe, which has been designed keeping in mind the exhaust pipes of Harley Davidson bike.
