Eimor Customs create a special, chopper style Royal Enfield Thunderbird a.k.a Karma

Eimor Customs has been making some of the best modifications in India, and they are back with another fascinating creation.
This time, they have revealed a customised 2007 Royal Enfield Thunderbird a.k.a Karma. The motorcycle is extra special as it belongs to one of the co-owners of Eimor Customs, Mrutyunjaya Dash (MJ). It was difficult for MJ to part ways with his prized possession, and thus he decided to revive the bike and give it an all-new look.
The Royal Enfield Thunderbird cruiser has received a significant makeover, and it draws visual cues from American chopper style bikes. The most standout feature of the customised Thunderbird is its paint-job. The colour combination of chameleon Orange/Violet and candy blue/violet flames is further enhanced with yellow pinstriping, and it looks achingly beautiful.
The fascia includes a conventional headlight that is placed in chrome housing. Two auxiliary lights further enhance the illumination tasks and are installed on the crash guards. The front number plate is mounted on the custom-built fender. Another noticeable aspect is the lower part of the front forks that are painted orange. The instrument console has been removed while the keyhole has been relocated to the left side of the engine.
A tall set handlebar performs the steering tasks and while the round rear view mirrors add a retro look to the motorcycle. The custom-built fuel tank has no branding, and thus the candy blue/violet flame design is not disturbed. On top of the fuel tank is a retro style, filler cap that gets a chrome finish.
The fuel tank is followed by a custom built, a rider-only saddle that gets a black cover and features a diamond stitch design. The pillion seat has been removed, and a massive, custom fender occupies the rear of the motorcycle. The fender also houses the tail light. The left side panel has the Karma branding while the right side has the owner's name on it. The engine is painted matte black while the covers get a matte silver finish.
The custom job increased the length of the bike by two-inches over the standard model.
The motorcycle continues to use a disc brake at the front and a drum unit at the rear. Conventional telescopic forks at the front and twin-sided springs at the rear perform suspension duties.
