India’s gold obsessed uncle and his golden Bullet is swag personified

Royal Enfield is one of the most popular two-wheeler brands in India. It also happens to be one of the oldest two-wheeler manufacturers in the world that is still in production. Royal Enfield is known for its retro looks and the signature thump from the exhaust. Over the years, they have launched new models, but the Bullet and Classic 350 series remain among the most popular. Royal Enfield motorcycles are also very popular in modification circles, and we have featured many of them on our website as well. Here, we have a video showcasing a modified Royal Enfield Bullet with golden accents.

The video has been shared by royal_bullet_5577 on their Instagram page. This page was created specifically for this particular Bullet. The uncle riding the motorcycle is likely the owner of this bike. The motorcycle has been customized in a way that sets it apart from others. What makes this Bullet unique are the golden accents and trims. It’s not every day that you see a golden Bullet on the road.

Don’t misunderstand us when we say “golden Bullet.” The motorcycle hasn’t been completely finished in a golden shade. The original black color of the motorcycle has been maintained. The owner has cleverly replaced some of the chrome parts with brass-plated trims. For example, the turn indicator, headlamp cover, number plate, and upper portion of the front fork cover have been finished in this shade.

The headlight installed on this motorcycle doesn’t appear to be stock. It seems like the owner replaced it with an aftermarket LED unit with DRL (Daytime Running Light). We wouldn’t be surprised if the DRL’s color is yellow, resembling gold. The footrests, clutch and lever, and odometer are all finished in a golden shade. There is even a miniature version of the Indian ruler, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, fixed on the handlebar.

If you look closely, you’ll notice that the side cover, kickstarter, and crash guard are all finished in the same shade. The uncle sitting on the bike is also dressed in a manner that complements the bike. We can see the uncle wearing gold rings, a bracelet, and a watch to match his ride. Even the silencer on this motorcycle is not stock. It appears to be a custom-made unit finished in a golden shade.

There are several videos of this motorcycle available online. This is not the first time we’ve seen an Indian showing off their obsession with gold like this in public. Recently, we’ve started seeing a trend where people are actually wrapping their cars in a golden-colored wrap to make them stand out from the crowd. Sunny Waghchure, known as the “Gold Man,” is from the Pimpri-Chinchwad region near Pune, Maharashtra. He has a collection of cars that are wrapped in gold. Similarly, businessman Boby Chemannur from Kerala owns a Rolls Royce sedan that also has a golden wrap. He uses this particular Rolls Royce as a taxi.
