Custom motorcycle scene in India is slowly changing. More enthusiasts have ventured in building their own motorcycle. Likewise, two Delhi based designers, Ritesh Sharma and Ashwin Bhardwaj have come together, forming ‘Karma designs’. Their debut motorcycle is a custom bobber based on a 1985, 350cc Royal Enfield. The design and philosophy clearly express their passion and love for old school motorcycles.
Even though both of them were working 9 to 5 jobs, they have managed to complete the build in 6 months. The design speaks old school lines, yet it looks classy and elegant. Leaving the chassis untouched, they concentrated more on cosmetic changes. The tank, side panels and fenders were custom build. The beautifully sculpted elongated tank and short handlebars have given the bike a slightly leaning forward riding position. The 18 inch front and 19 inch rear rims each win 100 spokes adds majestic beauty to the motorcycle. The team has custom built the kick paddles, gear shift levers and even the footrests. The electronics have not been changed and 3.5mm jack now travesties the key.
The minimalist paint scheme certainly stands out. The glossy black paint with golden strokes adds to the bikes grace.
All in all is it’s a stunning motorcycle ‘Karma Designs’ defiantly deserves a shootout! Kudos guys.
