Royal Enfield is the oldest bike manufacturer in the world which has been in continuous production ever since its inception. The brand dates back to 1901 and though it originally was a British brand, it now is a wholly owned Indian brand. The Royal Enfield brand has a lot of heritage and this is one of their major USPs too. Several new models variants by the company like the Classic Signals, Classic Pegasus, and Bullet Trials among others are a tribute to the legacies of the brand. Building on the same, here is a modified Royal Enfield motorcycle that has been made to resemble the bikes of the old era. Let’s take a look at the video below by Vampvideo before moving onto the details of this bike.
The bike you see here started its life as a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra. However, now its life has taken a turn and it has been turned into a Royal Enfield Motorcycle from the World War II Era. A lot of modifications have been done on the bike to achieve this look and the end result is amazing to say the least. The maroon red paint shade further gives it an old school look while the gold lettering on the tank and the side panels further seal its retro looks. This mod job has been carried out by TNT Motorcycles, who in past have made done several striking bike modifications. Let’s now move on and know in details all that has been done on this motorcycle.
The front end has been given a completely new look. The stock headlamp has given way to a custom made retro unit. Both the rims have been painted black to go with the overall theme of the bike. The number plate is mounted on the front fender in typical retro style while the instrument cluster pod has been uniquely suspended on one side of the headlamp. The biggest change on the front, however, is the girder fork which replaces the regular telescopic forks of the Bullet Electra.
Moving on, the tank and the saddles are replaced with custom units to enhance the vintage look of the bike. The new flat seats are leather units with white stitching that makes them look pretty good. Matching leather saddlebags have also been placed on either side of the bike to enhance the vintage theme as well as practicality. The engine has been covered in shiny black paint and the bike bow gets a custom black exhaust pipe with shark fin end. A lot of detailing work has been done on the bike like the white paint job on the top of the tank, custom retro-spec handlebars, a manual slider typer beam adjuster, rear tail lamp and bar end mounted rear view mirrors. All in all, this vintage mod job receives a thumbs up from us.
