Check out this gorgeous custom Royal Enfield cafe racer built by New Delhi-based TNT Motorcycles that looks deceptively vintage
In the Indian motorcycle market, Royal Enfield dominates the medium displacement segment (350cc to 650cc). The brand specializes in retro-inspired motorcycles, which attract many enthusiasts across the country. Interestingly, many Royal Enfield owners enjoy customizing their motorcycles, and there are plenty of workshops across the country that can help with this.
The video below, posted by Vampvideo, gives us a detailed look at a custom-built Royal Enfield cafe racer. The motorcycle has a beautiful vintage-inspired design, and it was built by TNT motorcycles. There are a lot of styling details worth noting here, so let’s take a closer look.
This custom RE cafe racer gets a pair of balloon-style tires on both ends shod with wire-spoke wheels. Up front, we see an aftermarket halogen headlight, set on a custom bracket, and a tiny front fender. The bike gets a pair of new clip-on handlebars, which are positioned quite low on the forks.
We also see custom bar-end mirrors and LED bar-end turn signals here, along with leather grips and leather-wrapped levers. The fuel tank is also custom made, with gold striping and custom “Royal Enfield” branding on it. A custom leather strip has been added to the top of the bike, extending longitudinally.
The bike also gets a custom one-piece seat, featuring a tan leather cover with a ribbed pattern on it. The fuel tank and seat have an engraved story, showing a man playing golf, the ball hitting the hole. The bike’s owner is a golfer, making it a truly personal customization.
To lighten up the overall design and give the bike a more vintage-inspired look, the side panels have been removed, while the battery and wiring have been hidden. In addition, there are custom leather covers on sections of the rear subframe and partly on the front forks. We also see a small aftermarket taillight here.
The engine has also been customized. The fuel injection system was replaced with a carburetor and a custom exhaust system was installed. The exhaust pipe is also covered with an insulated jacket. In addition, the engine was partially blacked out.
