What were you doing with your life in your late teens? If you were anything like me you were flunking out of university, getting right-royally wasted, living at home and you more than likely hadn’t even considered riding a motorbike. At least, not legally. Cough. So what if I were to tell you that the creator of those amazing you’ll below is only a mere 22 years old and that this is he has transplant Petrol bullets into Diesel ? Well, it’s with gritted teeth and a slightly awkward, jealous smile that I’d like to introduce you to Anuj Saini, founder of this extra ordinary custom shop, Rebel Custom Motorcycle.
We were excited to know his story more than he was to tell, ah, we had to wait until he was done with his college Exam! He shared with 350cc.com ” from a deep past days I don’t know how many bike sketch I’ve designed in my school days almost all notebooks back pages are inked by me every time extreme new designs came out , am good in drawing and can make pencil portrait of wht comes into my mind either bikes or some pretty faces too.” I would secretly confess now, I was not great in painting but yeah you followed me HAHA, ” Most of the time i dream in night and draw it early morning , I can tlk bout motorbike a whole day , never feel bore reading bout engines , In my history lecture in 6th class a number of time I was caught red handed making portraits and teachers scold and a few time caned. In my childhood days when I was in 6th class my friends save pocket money to buy cricket bats and laser lights and I save money to buy Bike magazines”
He did a fair deal with Parents “Parents wants me to do Medical degree , I agree with certain conditions , I’ll give you 75% marks and you should give me what I want” he laughed , “finally I manage to run a workshop, and now its REBEL CUSTOM MOTORCYCLE Company”
The workshop runs with a four guys team, Anuj, the lead guy holds the position of Financier, designer and Manager, Sony Fabricator and iron casting expert, Nadeemdenter and mechanic and the Advisor, Quality checker is a Mechanical engineer Devinder Saini. Talking on his transplanted Bullet he said “As per my nature i believe we should study all the rules so as we can break them properly. As my aim was to build completely new bikes started with transplanting petrol heads of bullets with diesel which give higher fuel economy upto 80 km per liter, started with 2 bikes one standard petrol another original 1983 model diesel bike of sooraj automobiles. My family was nt sure my bikes can run, hahah but I was pretty sure nd the final picture was clear in my mind , what I’ve to do what want in the budget. And step by step it takes bout 4 months to build these bikes , all most all parts except tyres nd HID lamp are custom build , results into low final budget”
He shared “my personal bike I want it in army theme, so i Named it Sainik resembles with my name Saini, One man Army” The explained the spec details with patient, we are thankful to him ” I increase rake angle, fit 170mm tyre at rear, Karizma digital console in unique custom build dashboard fitted on 28 litre custom build diesel tank, custom build Single seat, pillion seat is detachable, genuine new Alto car self strt motor is fitted, nd respective Amaron dry battery is placed in side box, this bike is very close to my heart I work day and night on this. Have u noticed rocket like twin silencer, HID head lamp fixed on fuel tank , to make handle free fr good handling experience” He continued “2 huge vintage horn ‘Jalwa’ jst below the tank , dashboard switch panel ,Rear break light is built in rear 10mm fiber no. plate, Unique additional front forks springier bars and a lots of major and minor things
Simply i wanna make a solid soldier bike, and so I get rid frm chrome nd shiny fairings. The another one is chopper with long front, huge tyre but fails at economy only 25 kmpl but mine sainik hv healthy 60 kmpl. The red fat slug special feature pillion seat is like tortoise head in-out-in below the rider seat ” He said “Alot of designs still in my pockets jst waiting fr person like me who jst wanna hv something different ” As well we are more excited to see them, yeah!
We’d asked him about the time period to build such a custom motorcycle, “Time depends upon degree of design , as if someone wants a bobber with girder or springer front v cn build it in 60 to 80 days. And if someone wanna go for a chopper or cruiser v cn show u final product in 100 days to 120 days“
Like always the price is another important thing to remember, “price range varies with degree of work nd addons , a springer front suspension , hard tail bobber – 1 lakh to 1.3 lakh excluding donor bike.
Theme base chopper 1 lakh to 3 lakh , price increase only because of addons like tyre bigger thn 200mm, single side swingarm choice , belt drive at the place of chain , Extreme paint jobs , final price vl be decided only after design selection , if simply wanna go for some design like Sainik or red Fat slug it vll cost – 1.5 lakh excluding donor bike” He made it clear with no hidden stuffs, I had to say the price is pretty justified for what he delivers.
He has two workshops now, in Uttar Pardesh and Punjab, where he belongs from Punjab.
