The Red­berry from Royal Cus­tom Mo­tor­cy­cles

Bike India - - IGNITION -

I am grate­ful to Bike In­dia for ap­pre­ci­at­ing my de­signs and cus­tom projects which re­ally played an im­por­tant part in mo­ti­vat­ing me to work on new de­signs and projects. This time I am shar­ing with you my new cus­tom job, the Red­berry from Royal Cus­tom Mo­tor­cy­cles. Red­berry has been built around Royal Enfield’s Thunderbird 500 (2013). The wheel­base of the mo­tor­cy­cle has been in­creased by seven inches and the sad­dle height low­ered by five inches, which give the Red­berry a low-slung rid­ing po­si­tion and which is help­ful on long hauls. This has been achieved by mod­i­fi­ca­tion work such as fab­ri­cat­ing a long swingarm and in­creas­ing the front sus­pen­sion fork an­gle. The rear tyre is a 150/70×15 and front is a 100/80×18, so the rims also have been mod­i­fied ac­cord­ingly. The seat is com­pletely hand­crafted and fin­ished in dual-tone fab­ric. En­gine cas­ings, front sus­pen­sion bot­toms, and brake and clutch levers have been buffed and pol­ished to add on a classy look.

While build­ing the bike I al­ways wanted it to look and ride like a fac­tory-built prod­uct, so much at­ten­tion has been paid while as­sem­bling it and, be­lieve me, it’s fun to ride with that stretched wheel­base and low seat­ing pow­ered by 500-cc twin-spark mo­tor de­vel­op­ing 41 Nm of torque!
