The Royal Enfield Classic 500 based bobber features a custom candy metal flake paint finish to it which looks absolutely cool
We have posted a couple of stories already on modified Royal Enfield motorcycles in the past. These motorcycles caught our attention because of the fact that they are built to perfection and looks neat in every sense. Today we found another fine example of Royal Enfield Classic 500 converted into a bobber.
The RE based bobber is quite common nowadays and this custom motorcycle is one of the finest examples that we have seen in recent times. This custom bobber is built by Faridabad based MK designs and is based on a Royal Enfield Classic 500. Although not much information is available about the motorcycle it is quite obvious that this custom motorcycle surely has taken its styling inspiration from the Harley Davidson Sportster model.
Towards the front profile, the cruiser gets a smaller and sleeker fender which adds a sporty touch to it while the headlamps too seem to have been inspired from a Harley Davidson model as well. The custom motorcycles use a bigger 18-inch wheel towards the front, fitted with 110 mm tyres.
The rear profile, on the other hand, gets a smaller 15-inch wheel fitted with a fatter 150 section tyres. In order to achieve the ideal bobber stance, the motorcycles wheelbase too has been increased to 1500mm from the standard 1360 mm. Some other noticeable changes to the motorcycle include an addition of a new digital speedometer which actually replaced the original analogue unit.
The bobber even features a custom made fuel tank followed by a single large custom made seat. Towards the rear profile, the cruiser gets a custom made fender. A side mounted rear number plate helps in adding the custom bike feel to it. The side turn indicators, in particular, also double up as a rear taillamp as well.
The engine has been finished in Black to match with the overall theme of the motorcycle. The crankcase, in particular, gets a chrome touch which helps in adding a vintage look to the motorcycle. Last but not least the custom candy metal flake paint helps in adding a classy touch.
Mechanically the custom motorcycle builders haven’t messed with the original frame and mounts of the donor motorcycle. However, it does get a K&N performance air filter along with a free flow Megaphone exhaust. The motorcycle still uses the same 499cc, single-cylinder motor that outputs a maximum power of 27 bhp along with a peak torque of 41 Nm.
