Royal Enfield motorcycles are one of the most popular motorcycle brands in the country. Royal Enfield motorcycles have a cult following in the country because of its retro looks and the iconic thump sound from the exhaust. It is also one of those motorcycle which people prefer to modify a lot. We have seen many modified examples of custom made Royal Enfield motorcycles in the past. We have even featured some of them on our website. Here we have one such a unique looking custom made Royal Enfield motorcycle by RnG Customs, Mumbai.
The video has been uploaded by BikeWithGirl Official youtube channel. The bike in the video is a board track racer motorcycle that is based on a Royal Enfield Motorcycle. According to the video, RnG Customs who is behind this beautiful creation had built it from scratch. They have even named this motorcycle as ‘Kadak’ and was showcased at the India Bike Week in Goa last year. It also won award the IBW last year.
But what is a board track racing?. Board track racing was a type of motorsport popular in the United States during the 1910s and 1920s. Competition was conducted on circular or oval race courses with surfaces composed of wooden planks. RnG Customs have tried their best to replicate the motorcycle. It is not like a usual motorcycle that we see on our roads these days. ‘Kadak’ has the frame of a cycle and heart of a motorcycle.
At the front and the rear, it has sleek 21 inch spoke wheels. It even has a functional leaf spring suspension at the front to retain the authentic look and feel of a board track racer motorcycle. The rear seat is suspended in the air and the sleek fuel tank which is clamped on to the frame of the motorcycle can accommodate around 10 litres of fuel.
The ‘Kadak’ gets a 500-cc engine from a 2015 Royal Enfield Thunderbird and according to the video, RnG claims that the motorcycle can do speeds of up to 130 kmph. The Motorcycle still gets self start system and kill switch which has repositioned to the side panel on the right side. These types of bikes only comes with rear brakes that are drum. Towards the end, video even shows the man behind this creation Raju from RnG customs and he said that he had spent around Rs 2.5 lakh on customising this motorcycle which does not include the price of the RE Thunderbird.
