Ornithopter Designs, a Nashik-based motorcycle custom house has created a chopper version of the Royal Enfield Electra 350 called, ‘Charcoal’.
The classic-looking Royal Enfield Electra 350 has gone under the knife and the transformation into a chopper is quite radical. The twin headlamps complement the muscular, large teardrop tank. Accentuating the laid-back feel further are the custom handlebars, and the chiselled custom seat. The bodywork is all custom, and the bike does away with an instrument cluster for an unfettered riding experience. The leather strips on the fuel tank and the seat give the chopper a vintage appeal. The rear fender holds the minimalistic LED tail light and the number plate is on the swingarm, on the side.
The 346cc single cylinder engine appears to be stock, apart from the exposed conical air filter. The stock engine makes 19.8 bhp of power at 5,250 rpm, and 28 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The engine works in tandem with a five-speed gearbox. The engine and its casing are all black, which enhance the dark theme of the bike. The custom exhaust features black heat wrap as well. The other exhaust pipe is a merely for the cosmetic appeal.
The front end features telescopic fork, while the rear appears to use monoshock with a custom swingarm. They have swapped the spoke wheels with black alloy units, shod with fatter rubber to justify the character of this chopper. The rear tyre is a 200-section unit, and both the front and rear wheels use disc brakes for anchorage.
