The Iron Maiden features custom wide seats and a custom tear-drop fuel tank.

The custom Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 is more laid-back than the stock model, thanks to the wide ape hanger handlebars, custom fuel tank and ribbed seats. The side-boxes, fenders are custom as well. The design house has replaced the stock projector headlamp with a custom circular unit which looks like LED. Instead of conventional indicators, the bike features bar-end units. The single pod instrument cluster is custom as well. The bodywork features black-and-white paint job with black wheels, engine, frame and front suspension. The fork lock is on the side of the steering head.
