2019 Royal Enfield Interceptor Intertracker 865

The Intertracker started life as a brand new Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 that was stripped all the way back to nothing. The frame got the rear end cut off and got powder coated in a satin black, a custom mount was made to fit the saddlemen tail section. The suspension was soused from K-Teck in the UK to give the bike a planted feel and to get away from the soft standard suspension. In the rear it has K-Teck razer shocks and a set of emulators up front with stiffer springs. The standard bars, risers and rubber riser bushings got put in the bin and some pro taper fat bars, pro taper risers and some custom solid riser bushings took there place. With the help of Sevenee distribution some custom wheels got laced up for the bike, talon smooth speedway hub up front and a talon rear hub for a YZ was fitted in the rear with custom spacers and adapter plate to take the standard rear brake rotor then laced up to some fat 19″ rims and some dunlop DT3 tyres finished of these one of a kind wheels. The wire loom was stripped back as almost all of the electrics got thrown away. With the custom front plate made the bike was ready for paint and the bike was covered in a gloss black, blue pearl logos got painted on the tail section and the side of the tank. Some gold hand pin stripping was laid down on the front plate to finish off the paint job. The last thing that was the heart of the beast, the 650 twin got the full S&S treatment with the 865 big bore kit, camshaft, upgraded clutch, hand ported cylinder head and the final touch was the one off 2 into 1 high pipe from S&S to let the bike breath. Fueling for the bike was helped from a power commander 5 with a quick shifter fitted. The bike is running a 20:80 methanol av gas mix.

There are so many other things that have gone into this bike, we feel that this bike stands of from the crowed where ever it goes. It is not just a bike build to look good it gets raced taking out 3rd place at the Burt Munro challange beach race this year and is heading to Auckland at the end of the year for the NZ flat track champs.

The build took me just under three months of late nights after work and almost all my weekend, the bike was finished two days before it had to be put into a crate to be sent to Australia for the Australian motorcycle festival late last year and took place in the Royal Enfield Busted Knuckles build off and won the peoples choice award.
