Rajputana Customs ‘Nandi’

Posted on January 3, 2011 by Scott in Bobber, Other. 34 comments

This bike, believe it or not, was a wedding gift. No, it wasn’t on the gift registry but the soon-to-be groom Subhayou Nayak decided to buy himself a little present before the big day. Smart guy. So he commissioned Vijay Singh and his team at Rajputana Customs in India to build him something special. The brief for the bike was pretty straight forward. “Subhayou specified that he wanted an old-school-looking fatty, with a 300mm rear tyre and a Royal Enfield 500cc engine” said Vijay. Apart from that, they could pretty much do what they wanted.

Royal Enfield ‘Light Foot’

Posted on October 26, 2010 by Scott in Bobber. 14 comments

Just came across this stunning motorcycle on Bikermetric. No, it’s not the latest from Falcon Motorcycles – although it does look like they’ve taken inspiration from the Bullet Falcon. Surprisingly, it was built by a custom shop in India called Rajputana Custom Motorcycles. The bike was made for a famous Bollywood actor, model and singer named John Abraham. Vijay Singh, Rajputana Customs Co-Owner said: “The bike we have built for John is an extension of his personality and taste. For instance, the bike is subtle, simplistic, and a complete stand-out much like John’s calm and uncomplicated demeanor but amazing presence”. Doesn’t John sound like a catch?

India on an Enfield

Simon Lister is a sound engineer by trade but has a passion for photography and riding motorcycles to places only a handful of adventurers would dare to venture. He has ridden Royal Enfield’s through Rajasthan in northern India and has recently returned home from the Himalayas traversing some of the tallest passes in existence. We love how Lister describes riding in India… “When you’re on the motorbike, the adrenaline is running the whole time. You see amazing things on the road, especially in India. You see funerals, people on the roads, thousands of trucks, elephants, camels, dogs, dead dogs, dogs eating dead dogs, cattle, what you smell, what you see, what you taste, everything. It’s an explosion of all your senses.” You can view his beautiful collection of photographs on Simon Lister Photography. [If you want to do a trip on a Royal Enfield around India visit Venture on Wheels and they will organize an adventure of a lifetime].

Royal Enfield are selling aftermarket kits on its website now. They look ok, the scrambler kit looks much better than the cafe racer kit – the seat looks too square.  There’s The Cafe Racer, The Scrambler and the Continental…
