The Royal Enfield Classic 350 is among the best selling bikes by the company and is hugely popular among people from all walks of life. The Classic may not be the best bike ergonomically or mechanically but it has a retro flair to it which attracts people towards it. The carbureted engine’s thump is another factor which contributes to its popularity. No surprises then that it is also among the most modified bikes in India. The video below by King Indian shows another good example of a modified Royal Enfield motorcycle. Take a look at the video before we move on to the details of this hot mod Royal Enfield.
The bike in question here is the Royal Enfield Classic 350 model. It has been modified on the lines of the bobber designed bikes and looks quite cool. Compared to the stock Classic 350, this one looks massively cool and hot at the same time. It also gets several of its parts from other motorcycles like the KTM Duke. However, the engine and other related mechanicals have been left as they were. Let’s us now see what all has been done on the bike to turn it into this bobber brute.
The fenders at both the ends have been chopped short which is a typical trait of any bobber. The bike has been painted in a shade of matte grey while a lot of detailing work has been done in gold. The wheels at both the front and rear have been replaced with new units. The rear rim is not a 15-inch spoked unit while the front rim is a 17-inch spoked unit. The headlamp has been replaced with a retro looking piece while the instrument console is now a single pod unit. Another major change on this Royal Enfield Classic 350 bobber is its front forks, which is a USD unit now. It has been taken from the KTM Duke and the front disc brakes are also taken from the same bike.
Custom handlebars, new grips and brass brake levers further make it look cool. The handlebars also get upside down mounted mirrors. The tank gets a handmade brass fuel filler cap that has been designed beautifully. The rear saddle is a custom made leather unit which adds to the overall retro look of the bike and has been directly attached to the rear suspension. The frame of the bike has been extended a bit to incorporate the Bobber look. An aftermarket air filter has been added on the bike to and it is enclosed in a cool looking metal housing shaped like a rocket at front. A custom exhaust is a must for such builds and hence the bike gets a wrapped exhaust pipe painted black.
