You’d be hard-pressed to believe that this bit of kit was once a Bajaj Avenger. Called the Avenger Bobber, this custom job is the brainchild of Vadodara, Gujarat based J&D Custom Co.
The donor bike, an Avenger 220, was stripped to its bare essentials, and its bobber-ification began. The frame was subtly fettled with and stretched to arrive at the desired stance. The stock petrol tank was done away with, and what replaced it was a compact, shiny, stainless steel affair, engraved with some random murals. The tank’s cap was fabricated out of brass and bears an engraved sailor symbol. The tanks’s sides boast the J&D Custom Co. logo, which was finished in brass as well.
The Avenger’s accommodating seat was shown the door, and made way for a custom made single seat, upholstered in leather and featuring a diamond shaped stitching pattern. Jewelling up the front is a rather small, round headlamp, hiding behind a brass grill, while the rear sports an asymmetrically positioned, round tail lamp, with an engraved STOP sign. Most of the wiring was shrouded in the leather bag below the seat. Ape hanger handlebars with chromed grips, new alloy wheels and a custom rear fender round things off.
Performance modifications include a slip on muffler for the exhaust, while the air-cooled, 219.89 cc, single cylinder mill now breathes better, courtesy a K&N High performance air filter.
