Folks at Eimor Customs were given a task to turn a 2013 Royal Enfield Thunderbird into a rugged look machine and, as always, they have done a remarkable job. The project was christened as the 'Harpe', a sword or sickle whose references can be frequently seen in Greek and Roman mythology. The bike remained unused for over a year before it arrived at the workstation of Eimor Customs.
The aim was to resurrect the Thunderbird and give the owner an entirely new reason to fall in love with it all over again. The owner desired to transform the laid back styled bike into a rugged scrambler. Therefore, the motorcycle was strapped with resized tyres, new headlight and taillight, new turn signals, yellow rugged auxiliary lights, aesthetically made front and rear fenders, single pipe seat frame, protruding air filter, and beautifully crafted toolboxes.
The cockpit features twin-pod asymmetric meters that replace the stock units. The new set up features analogue speedometer and fuel gauge.
The stock, projector style headlight has been switched for a dual projector unit that is accompanied by LED DRLs. The headlight mask uses the same copper colour that is also seen on the fuel tank. However, the paint on the mask is a shade of matte metallic copper. The same matte finish can be seen on the brake levers, engine cover and brake callipers.
On the contrary, the fuel tank gets a gloss finish with a dual-tone paint job. ‘Eimor Customs’ badge sits on either side of the tank. The asymmetrically mounted fuel filler cap gives the tank an even more appealing look. The saddle further complements the copper paint. The brown leatherette for the seat with diamond pattern provides the motorcycle with an authentic retro look. The same material is also used on the handle grips and the air filter hose.
Sides reveal the heat wrap on the exhaust bent pipe and a black megaphone.
The combination of matte and gloss finish to the motorcycle looks appealing while the diamond pattern seat and megaphone exhaust give it a unique and retro look. It is a fantastic mod-job, and the folks at Eimor Customs deserve a round of applause for the Harpe.
