Passion – is what one needs to build a great custom bike from an average donor bike. Bajaj Avenger 220 is a popular bike among youths here who look for a bit of cruiser styling but not a regular choice for a custom project, at least we feel. However we showcase stories here from amateur builders, and believe they definitely inspire others to come up with more builds. Today we have in our bucket is a modified Bajaj Avenger 220, shaped into a mini bobber by one amateur guy Nikhil, in B’lore!
“I am Nikhil..basically from Pune, currently living in Bangalore from past 7 years. From my childhood I was passionate about bikes n cars. From past 2 years I developed taste into bobbers n cafe racer n that is when my dream project of building a customized bobber started.
At that time I was looking into various bikes which I can modify, and finalized Bajaj avenger 220. The reason behind modifying Bajaj Aveger 220 is that everybody was modifying Enfield and I was challenged by 1 of the customizer that you cannot do a good job with avenger 220. I did a lot of research on this bike and I realize that I can utilize the bike very well for my modification.

The first most thing I did was I came up with my design in Photoshop. Then I started looking for fabricators or tinkering guys who could satisfy my needs. Finally I found one tinkering guy called Mutthu who could do fabrication for me
I picked up a second hand avenger 220 and the real work started from last 3 months. Initially started work from fuel tank den rear n front fender den seat.
I had to design my rear fender 2 times. And Mr. Mutthu delivered the work to my expectation which I’m very thankful to him..
The last thing was to decide on the paint job which I preferred matte black for fuel tank, fenders, meter and front head light.. I named my bike as “13” since my birth date is 13. And this is a gift for my wife DJ Waluscha as she is also very passionate about bikes. Finally today my dream has come true..please find photos attached..bare with spellings mistakes ..thanks for posting it..Nikhil 🙂
