Royal Enfield Machismo was another great product from once British and now Indian motorcycle brand. Machismo feels like a cross between Classic Chrome and Electra 350 as it carries chrome paint all over with Electra style seat and color tone.
The 1990 Machismo used here was almost rusted and bringing it back alive was nothing less than a challenge for Spanners Customs. The finished version is a typical modern cruiser with equal emphasis to comfort and safety. Unlike the original Machismo with drum brake, this Blue and White Edition uses front disc and rear backrest for both safety and comfort related reasons.
Original fuel tank of Machismo was badly damaged and thus, they got a new fuel tank with dual tone shade for riders safety. A high placed handlebar was used to get that perfect straight back posture on Machismo 350. The seat here is also well padded while black dual barrel exhaust is used to get that typical roaring RE feel.
Spanners Customs have used a set of dual tone alloy wheels with balanced black/chrome finish. Front fender was finished in White shade while rear gets blue finish for that premium cruiser effect. Suspension was also painted for a perfect sync.
Royal Enfield Machismo is powered by a 346cc, cast iron engine that further comes paired to a 4-speed gearbox. Unlike present day bikes, the gear lever on Machismo is available on the right side of its engine.
As revealed by Spanners Customs, the modification cost of this Machismo is INR 1 Lakh. Typical Bullet style front fascia was left untouched in terms of design while black paint helped it look better than the original maroon shade on Machismo 350. Royal Enfield range presently starts from INR 1.15 lakh for the Bullet 350.
