You could say this newly customized Yamaha RX 135 is a motorcycle that enthusiasts have been waiting years to ride, Bambukaat Motorcycle Customs is staging one of the most impressive showcases of Cafe riding this summer using another elated 2 stroke engine! You know what they say “It’s the simple things in life that are often the best.” And nothing represents that more perfectly than today’s bike. Before you go further, we applaud the hard work of Shubhendu Mitra, Pritpal Singh, Ramandeep Singh and Rohit Bansal from Bambukaat Motorcycle Customs, who built the bike as well as who helped us showcasing the bike on our small blog!
“We searched online for an Yamaha with an 2 stroke heart in it. We looked on all web portals where we could have possibly find a bike. But all went in vain. But luckily enough a friend calls us one day(who already knew that we were searching for an Yamaha) and tells us there’s bike for sale down in Chandigarh but the condition was too weak. The engine had to be redone. The tires were in a non existent state. There was no fuel tank on the bike. But it was what we exactly needed. When we bought the bike back in our workshop it was a in an extremely depressing state.
Coming to the changes done in the bike. The fuel tank we placed was made with an RXZ fuel tank base. Every bit of plastic has been shed off of the bike. Clip on handlebars with single lamp on front. An Analog Speedo. And yes the under-seat exhaust with titanium wrapped around the bend. We’ve used megaphone as the exhaust in this bike and my god it roars now…” Shubhendu shared with us.
Pritpal Singh enlighten us about the naming of the bike “We have named this bike ” Bakki”as it was name of teh horse of mirza jatt ….(character of mirza sahiba a popular tragic romances of punjab) being punjabi we just love to have punjabi influence on our bikes, be it be name or the style .
“Bakki” took us some rough 45 days or so to complete. In this custom we’ve removed the stock wheels of bike . The complete headlight assembly have been removed and fog lamp have been placed . . we have used clip on handlebar which features bar end mirrors with no electricals on the handle except the horn dipper switch . the battery have been placed in a custom made electrical box. The engine was cleaned and has been fitted with a megaphone exhaust. Other fabrication work includes a custom made fuel tank .we have intalled external air filter and exhaust wrap on the exhaust bend for better performance of the bike.We didnot alter the chasis much as we didnot wanted to kill the orignality of the yamaha in this prospect .”
