The Matilda is a retro-modern Bobber iteration of the Royal Enfield Classic 500. The changes are so exhaustive that the bike hardly has traces of the original model’s design. They have altered the frame for a hardtail look, and features a custom seat with springs. The fuel tank is a custom peanut unit with a unique paint work. The fenders and the toolbox are custom as well. The straight handlebars get custom clamps, and are mounted on a WP inverted front fork. The chrome bar-end mirror adds a nice classic touch to the bike.
