Highland Customs Motorcycles – Promising workshop from Chandigarh

The Highland Custom Motorcycles and Fabricators aka H-C is a brain child of not one man but it just happened, while riding, while working, while chatting and riding more.

The Chief Thinker of H-C Umang Shankar belongs to the well known Enfield Motorcycle Group called “Road Survivors”. One of the oldest motorcycle clubs in India and the most ridden bikes are housed in the hangars of RS.

RS has some crazy talents in their own right The moderator Jojo Khurana is one of the most know motorcyclist and tourer in India, Bikram Singh whom Umang Shankar calls him as his guru has oceans of knowledge in biking field.

With vast amount of miles under their belly and huge on ground and theoretical experience H-C was started to provide solutions to the riders that were never there.

Solutions that give average Indian rider a taste of international touring scene. And to contribute into the evolution in technology with which our rider have been kept away from some time now.

The H-C Garage started from showrooms of Harley-Davidson, when a friend of Umang came up to him whilst he was working with H-D India and saw the bikes parked over there, he was like I would love to own one some day, but I don’t think so I would muster up that amount of cash ever for a motorcycle.

All he had a badly done up Thunderbird and that’s how Project Uno Came up..now renamed Tee-BOB.

A friend suggested the name and another contributed in the logo. Highland cz Umang being from a village in himachal hills being a highlander working under the name was all the more special….and the Ibex cz it the most endangered and exclusive animal of Highlands.

The bike in perspective is the J-Racer.It was a discovery in itself as well, while Umang went to deliver a 1200 N Nightster to a customer who had just bought a Harley for himself, saw this one lying there. Two minutes discussions over it landed the deal and the product is in front of every one’s eyes.

The vision was clear making a high revving, light and nimble city bike that could surprise many with its performance .

The inspiration was the 1920 style Bonneville bikes with the triumphs being run on the old British style hard tails.

The bike has been restored to carry the same identity as Jawa but it should look like performance oriented.

The  Seat was handcrafted keeping in mind the light character and the seating is not the world most comfiest but facilitates the speed of the bike as the rider sits on in a crouch position, hence the linear motion of the bike points forwards.

The parts have been carefully chosen not be exclusive but from run of the mill market, to make the rider at ease on road if he ever has to replace the parts, remember the H-C was a solution provider not  dream sellers.

The pin stripping has been well taken care of as well, the white enamel pinstripe is the same as you get on Softail Heritage Classic as the paint and the brush is same. Pin stripping is a dying art some how the technology and the vinyls have taken over world because it is much easier to paste than paint. And Umang being a big proponent of pin stripping wanted the bike to have some of his hand drawn work.

The extended frame has been well complimented with the resprocketing of engine, redoing the engine with High Compression Piston rings, and the High Perf Air filter. However Jawa is already a fast bike dint needed to many things for it to make it quick says Umang.

The Creator of the bike and the eccentric motorcycle builder from Chandigarh gives all credit to his fabricator and mechanic chief at his humble workshop in sector 48 motor market.

And of course the Mc’s involved with it. Jawa Yezdi Club Chandigarh Road Survivors, Chandigarh.

With that and the promise of coming up with in hand solutions and evolution in technology Umang Shankar Signs off from Highland Custom garageChandigarh.
