Have you ever seen a belt-driven Royal Enfield Classic 500? Even I was astounded after reading this lovely illustration by HTRZ Modz Shornur. The entire chain system was taken out to make room for this Gates Belt Drive system, which not only looks nice but will also make the ride quieter.
Firestone Coker tyres wrapped over chrome-plated thick wheels look stunning. The makeover converts this Classic 500 into a classic Bobber, and things are further organised by using USD front forks, front and rear fenders that are completed to order, and a single saddle covered in leather with a brace for the taillight.
A 5.7-inch LED light with daytime running lights has been installed in place of the Classic 500’s front lamp. The Classic 500 Bobber now features a two-pod instrument console. For improved speed shredding, HTRZ Modz fitted the motorcycle with a rear 242 mm disc brake.
A sizable 499cc, single-cylinder engine with 27.2 BHP and 41.4 Nm of torque powers the Classic 500. The engine has a 5-speed transmission as standard equipment, and its top speed in stock form is 120 kmph. Bar end lights and softail handlebar grips elegantly round out this whole kit.
