Harley Davidson and Royal Enfield are two brands that are connected by a strange thread in India. While both of them are among the oldest and most iconic bike makers in the world and make retro-styled bikes, the pricing of their model lineup differs by a huge extent. However, the connect both these manufacturers have found in India is that a lot of Royal Enfield bikes are modified into Harley Davidson lookalikes here. One of the primary reason behind that is the somewhat similar styling and build that Royal Enfield offers which makes them easy to modify into big cruiser bikes. A similar Royal Enfield Bullet based mod job is featured below that has been given the Harley Davidson treatment and is up for sale.
This video by BLC BIKER shows the bike in full detail reveals the various aspects of its mod job. For those who are interested in custom modified bikes, this one is available for sale at an asking price of Rs. 2.5 lakh. It is a 2013 Royal Enfield Bullet Standard model and the cost includes everything the bike here has been shown with. It is currently with its first owner and the seller can be contacted via the mail id provided in the YouTube video description. Let’s now talk about the various modifications done on this motorcycle.
The front end of the bike has been given a full-blown cruiser look and has been bathed with chrome. A custom triple T has been added to fit the wide 110 section tire on the front which has been shod on to a 19-inch rim. The rims themselves look quite good and have been finished in all black. Most of the body panels on this modified Bullet have been painted in red while the engine compartment and a few other bits have been given a black finish. The headlight is a custom unit and is accompanied by LED foglamps that give a macho look to the front end of the bike. A custom air filter, dummy engine guards, engine dirt guard and
Moving on, a custom made wide handlebar has been fitted on the bike that is mounted on handlebar risers. The indicators have been mounted upside down on the handlebars adding to the overall look of the bike. The footpegs have been placed way upfront and are quite wide units to give the rider that typical cruiser feeling while riding the motorcycle. A custom saddle follows the wide fuel tank and both of them have been placed in perfect symmetry.
The rear end gets a big 190 section tire along with a custom fender. Taillight duties are done by an LED strip embedded in the fender itself as is the norm with various custom builds these days. Completing the whole mod job is a custom twin-pipe silencer, though it is actually a single pipe unit only. All in all, the bike looks pretty good and it is a decent deal for Rs. 2.5 lakh.
