Royal Enfield 350cc AVL Old School Thumper – Bull City Customs

If you google search engine has more browsing history of motorcycles than babes, you’re probably aware of late 60’s iconic Scrambler motorcycles. In the 1960s and 1970s, scramblers were ultimate bike: lightweight, beginner-friendly, great looking, and both smooth enough for a commute on paved roads and tough enough to take down trails or onto the beach. But the industry shifted, and with new motorcycling style squeezed the stripped-down, go-anywhere bike almost out of the market. The same was experienced by those beautiful Cafe Racers as well, in India, when Royal Enfield brought back the Continental GT, there are criticism and I really feel they are offended and really wish they exercise their bike integrity and show some respect to those legends…Coming to the present day, Royal Enfield might onset a Scrambler vision motorcycle and there has been much concern about what the new Scrambler would look like, and how it would be received by hardcore traditionalists. However it’s always feel unprecedented when bike builders like Bull City Customs dig their hands to bring those legendary bikes back on street..With a build brief calling for an “old school thumper”

 

From Pipeburn  Stripping the mid sized thumper back to basics, the clunky factory fenders were replaced with shorter ones, and the frame shaved of all superfluous bracketry. The toolbox is gone, replaced with a leather carrier bag mounted above the shorty pipewrapped exhaust. New framework has been mounted on the bike, and the battery box is sheet metal unit fabricated up by Bull City themselves.

At the front end sits a set of custom built T riser bars, adorned with a unique headlight surround enveloping the Yamaha RX100 headlight. The handlebars are Proracer items, mounted up with aluminised grips. Rolling stock is made up of 18 inch rims, with 120 profile at the front and 130 profile at the rear.

An impressive aspect of the build is the metal work carried out. The 22 litre fuel tank is a one off special, along with the ‘lightweight’ side plates. The foot pegs have been made from Royal Enfield engine internals, adding to the overall metallic touch to the build. This is matched with the fuel tank cap fashioned from a main shaft sprocket.

From the front to the back, there is little that hasn’t been aesthetically touched up over the course of the build. With much of the metal work coming from Bull city’s own workshop, this Royal Enfield is definitely a fun looking ride. We’ll leave the last word to Bull city: ” We wanted to build something you’d imagine riding across the Himalayan foot hills and also something you could take out for a beer without a second thought.” We’ll drink to that.”
