Royal Enfield (RE) is one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturer in the world that is still in production. They have a variety of products in their line up and Classic and Bullet series motorcycles are the among the most popular. Royal Enfield motorcycles have a huge fan base in India and across the world. Buyers like Royal Enfield motorcycle for its retro looks and heritage. These motorcycles are serve as a platform for several custom modifications and we have seen several modified Royal Enfield motorcycles in the past. Here we have a Royal Enfield Bullet motorcycle that has been modified to look like a vintage motorcycle.
The video has been shared by Vampvideo on their YouTube channel. The bike seen here in the video started its life as a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra. Modification work on this motorcycle has been done by TNT Motorcycles. The motorcycle has been completely transformed to look like a vintage motorcycle. Several major and minor modifications have been made to the motorcycle to give it a vintage look. First thing that one would notice about this motorcycle is the paint. It gets a Maroon paint job which gives it an old school vibe.
The motorcycle gets golden pinstriping and lettering on the tank which adds to the vintage look. Starting at the front, it has been completely modified. it does not resemble to an RE Electra from any angle. The stock headlamp has been removed and replaced with a retro looking custom made unit. The front telescopic forks have been replaced with girder fork. The number plate is now mounted on the fender and the instrument cluster on this motorcycle is neatly placed on one side of the headlamp.
Moving to the side profile, you notice that the original fuel tank on the RE Electra has also been replaced for a custom made unit. The stock seats have also been replaced. The new seats wrapped in leather will definitely remind you of some vintage motorcycles. To go well with the overall vintage look of the motorcycle, body coloured saddle bags have also been installed on the bike.
The engine, rims and spokes on this motorcycle have been painted in gloss black finish and stock exhaust pipe has also been replaced with a custom made all black unit with a shark fin tip. The motorcycle also gets manual type light beam adjuster, bar end mirrors, custom made handle bar and a custom tail lamp.
The motorcycle looks very neat in terms of modifications and TNT Motorcycles have done a great job with it. It does not look like any modifications have been done to the motorcycle on the engine front. The Electra was also powered by the same engine as Classic or other motorcycles. The motorcycle used a 350-cc engine that was seen in older generation Royal Enfield motorcycles. RE last year updated the 350-cc engine and the same is now available in Meter 350 and 2021 RE Classic 350. The new gen RE motorcycles are a lot more refined and vibration friendly when compared to the older versions.
