Is there any way not to love this motorcycle? Royal Enfield 500cc Classic was built by Rajputana Custom Motorcycles, a small outfit from Jaipur, India. They have become known for building custom motorcycles by modifying existing models or creating completely new ones.
The owner of the shop said that they ‘are pretty much self-taught due to the fact that we weren’t lucky enough to have a generation before us to lend a helping hand or advise us correctly’, so their entire work is a result of love, passion and utter dedication and the guys from the company have come a long way.
Their latest creation is called the Assault and it is a modified version of one of the most soulful motorcycles around – the Royal Enfield 500cc. It was built on order from Mr. Kumar Kundan from New Delhi according to his specifications that required the bike to be ‘raw, minimal and subtly painted’. They changed a lot, but the Assault is still pretty amazing. It has got new KTM Duke front suspension, new rims and tires, completely different handlebars that are, in our opinion, far better than the original ones and CNC machined headlights that are one of the most prominent new features even for people who don’t know what the original looked like. The gas tank is also new and custom made, as are the extended rear swing arm and frame, rear fender and brown leather seat.
The paint is simply amazing. It is matte mixture of green and black and it fits the retro style perfectly. The changes we mentioned transformed the line of the bike completely so that it now looks like a sturdy military vehicle with matching tires, rather than a calm old machine.
