Bangalore-based Bulleteer Customs has been in news for some really tastefully modified motorcycles. One of their latest creations is the Cafe Racer you see in the images below. Dubbed as the ‘Chief’, it’s the latest addition to their ‘Bratrod’ series. The Chief is based on a Royal Enfield Electra 350.
It may be noted here that Cafe Racers have been among the most popular retro-motorcycle genres. They have remained in the limelight ever since their inception over almost seven decades ago. Thanks to their minimalist bodywork, an aggressive riding position, and powerful engines, the Cafe Racers have been the choice of all those looking for a fast motorcycle with classy looks.
The Chief, which started its life as a 350c Royal Enfield Electra, belongs to a sailor in the Merchant Navy. The customizer says that the sailor wanted his Electra to be ‘immortalized’. We think that what he actually wanted was a motorcycle that has a timeless appeal. And the good folks at the Bulleteer Customs have done just that by giving this Electra a Cafe Racer format along with several cues from the brat-styled machines that have been in the limelight of late.
The Chief gets a candy orange paint job, the inspiration for which comes from the Lamborghini supercars. Up front, it gets a custom LED headlamp and a sleeker, smaller fender. Once astride, you’ll notice the clip-on handlebars and a single-pod instrument cluster. There’s also a black racing stripe running through the centre of the orange fuel tank. The original seat has been replaced with a flatter one. There’s no grab rail and even the original rear fender has been done away with. There’s a small stop lamp with a small plastic mudguard just below it. There are no indicators on this motorcycle. There’s also a side-mount for the rear registration plate. The motorcycle also gets black-painted mag wheels. The cycle parts and the engine have also been painted black.
“We rode this naughty machine to Goa for the Royal Enfield Rider Mania, and I must say the Chief is one crazy ride!” – shared Bulleteer Customs.
