2011 Custom Royal Enfield that can be yours...
« on: January 04, 2013, 02:48:41 AM »
Rick Fairless of Strokers Dallas built the bike at the link below.  I think it looks like someone puked up a bag of Skittles, but I like some of the technical mods.

It looks like artwork...I be afraid to get her dirty and would think it will sell for a bit of change. The paint isn't  krylon plasti coat..
Oh Magoo you done it again

It's definitely not a bike to ride considering the rear sprocket is also the disc for the only brake.  A little chain lube and you have no effective brake.

Yours for only $38,999.00 according to the website.  Better quality pictures there, still should be on Jalopnik's nice price or crack pipe.

Cool bike.  Really cool paint though not my style.  $39k?  That's a lot of dough for any bike.

Wheres the fuel pump? It appears to heave a line running out of the tank into the frame? I guess it has a external pump mounted behind the motor?

     It's a bike show bike. It shouldn't be looked at as a bike you would actually ride. There is a LOT of work in this bike.Recognize the WORK whether you LIKE the bike itself or not.

So your saying the bike is like a supermodel. You are allowed to look at it but don't try and ride it.  :D
