Motorcycling is more than transportation. When we ride, we become dipped in an experience and the motorcycle plays an intimate part in that sagacity. A motorcycle is very close and attained to the owner, its like having a dance partner whose subtle moves become familiar over time. We keep personalizing our machines so they fit our identity and needs. Whether this is simple crash protection, chrome or paint bits, or luggage or navigational sparkles that we bought with the idea of finally conquering those epic adventure – they always are reason to pride. So with Saikat Basu, proud owner of a 100000 Km old Royal Enfield Standard and when the bike needed to recuperate due to its miles long journey since 1990’s, the bike greeted with special care… Saikat Basu, afterall is the craftsman behind all those pompous paintshades and mods we witnessed in past, from the house of Eimor Customs.
“The Graduate – This is 90’s Royal Enfield Bullet Standard 350 cc. This bike has seen more than 1,00,000 kms and has been a faithful friend through thick and thin. However it had its own share of problems. Its electrical wiring were cut at places and was prone to short circuit. The gear box needed a replacement. The suspensions were hard and ineffective. For a heavy bike like Bullet, the front drum brakes weren’t so effective on slopes. We changed the headlight casing to a new one, with new hydraulic front suspensions, which no more needs threading system and can be fitted with an Allen key type bolt. New rear suspensions and a new stock seat has improved the riding comfort a lot. We have changed the entire wiring kit and new set of stock lights and indicators. We have fitted a new gear box and a new carburetor. To give a different look we tried a dished out tank. Bluish Grey, Off White and Dark Brown Stripes seemed like the best choice amidst all colors. The bike has got a balanced blend of vintage looks and modern features. We have also done hand engraving on the Clutch Cover, Gear Box covers etc. With everything put together and many more things consciously kept away, this bike is a restrained and matured expression of our creativity”.
