We all know that Royal Enfield motorcycles have a very cult following. These motorcycles are popular across the world and have seen many famous personalities owning one in the past. Royal Enfield motorcycles also serve as a great donor bikes for many modification projects and we have seen several examples of the same as well. Here we have an elegant looking cafe racer motorcycle based on the RE Continental GT 650. The modifications on this bike has has been done by Krom Works which is a custom house based out from Indonesia.
This new GT 65 based cafe racer is build by Adika Pratama and has named this cafe racer ‘The 30’s’. The name is actually in reference to his own age and time that he has spent at the workshop. The motorcycle looks nothing like the original Continental GT 650 as most of the panels on this motorcycles have been taken down. The headlamp has been removed and the redesigned front cowl and the fuel tank get a brown paint job.
As mentioned above, all the body panels have been taken down and now it is highlighting the engine on this bike. The whole engine area is given a gloss paint black powder coating that matches with the chassis. Another modification done is the custom made exhaust made from stainless steel.
It now runs of wider 17 inch spoke wheels. The front wheel gets dual disc brake set up from Brembo whereas the rear gets single disc. The front gets Upside down forks and the rear gets a monoshock which is adjustable. The rear sub-frame has been heavily modified to suit the new monoshock setup.
The clip on handle bar set up is new and the foot pegs are fabricated from aluminium. The minimalist body work has been done by hand-beaten galvanized steel. In terms of power, it seems like no changes are made to the engine of the bike and the 647-cc, twin cylinder engine will continue to generate 47 Bhp and 52 Nm of torque mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. This definitely is one of the coolest looking modified Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 that we have seen in recent times.
