Found it on the vanishing point blog, it was evidently made for an Indian celebrity. Looks like the copied the Falcon Triumph, I think it's  well done.

If that goes in to production, I'll be first in line!

Gee, I have a hardtail with a girder front end that currently has a cb750s0hc engine in it and I've thought about swapping the engine and rear wheel with my G-5. That's a nice looking bike, but I've never liked the C-5 style valve covers. The older G-5s have the more rectangular  covers that are more period, IMHO  :-)

I like the kick start on what looks to be a C-5 engine.  How about that.

Cheers,

Very cool styling exercise! 

I'm dubious about ride quality, but what they hey!  It's nice to look at.

I can see a lot of effort has gone into it, but not really my 'cup of tea'

The bike in question was done for the "Bollywood" actor John Abraham by a Jaipur (India) based company called Rajputana Customs......!!

This bike has been truly customised to suit John's persona and desires.
