This Custom Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 Looks Like a Harley-Davidson


It’s been a while since Royal Enfield discontinued their 500 cc motorcycles. They used to sell the Classic 500 and the Thunderbird 500. Thunderbird is very popular. It is also a motorcycle that has been modified by many people because it is a cruiser.

In fact, there are quite a few Royal Enfield motorcycles that have been modified by their owners. This is done because they can be customized in several different styles and are relatively easy to work for a shop. This is a Thunderbird 500 modified by Eimor Customs. The store calls this build “Black Magic”. Several cosmetic changes have been made to the motorcycle.

It comes in a matte black color scheme, giving the motorcycle a very stealthy look. The front and rear fenders remain hard-edged to better fit the bike’s design. The rear fender accessories feature hidden brackets for a clean look. The exhaust is also new and, like the rest of the motorcycle, is black.

On the side, there's a new exhaust with a split design.

The side covers also have an embossed effect. The fuel tank is made to match the lines of the two fenders. The seats have also been redone and now have stitching patterns. The rear seats can be removed and a luggage rack is placed there. Speaking of the seats, it also now features a low-slung design that helps maintain the cruiser’s character.

Then there’s the lighting element, which is also new. The stock headlight has been replaced with a 5.5-inch white LED headlight that contrasts with the bike’s all-black exterior. The taillights and turn indicators are cast in metal to complement the design. The handlebars have also been changed. It’s almost straight now, with a machine-cut aluminum handlebar riser. New alloy wheels are also available.
