Stock Royal Enfield’s are very tricky to customize, and to make them into a decent café racer is even harder. Of course exceptions are there to break the rule and we all know that Rajaputana is more than capable to do this. Now, the Europeans are stepping in nad that’s how we get the chance to meet this beautiful T-Factory Royal Enfield Café Racer. Coming from Belgium, Yves and the rest of the crew are really bitten by the Royal bug.
The bike was produced in the true Café Racer fashion with most of unnecessary things being stripped, grinded, and torn away from the stock frame. The frame then received a fresh coat of red paint, while the wheels, front shocks, exhaust and underbelly were painted black. We always thought that the rear subframe on 500EFI Bullet’s is a bit of a design mess, but highlighted in red – it looks pretty awesome. Rear shocks were replaced with an adjustable units (Hyperpro) and the front brake went from stock to Beringer unit (custom brake adapter was CNC’d). The tripple trees were custom made, the front mudguard was modified while the tank was sourced out. The custom seat hides the battery and the Power Commander, which combined with K&N carburator filters and custom exhaust is producing what we believe to be a nice kick.
Very nice, subtle and beautiful bike. We want to see more from Yves and the T-Factory crew.
