Royal Enfield motorcycles have long captured the hearts of Indian riders with their retro aesthetics and distinctive exhaust thump. Among their models, the Bullet and Classic 350 series remain perennial favorites. While these bikes already possess a unique charm, some enthusiasts take customization to the next level. Enter the “gold-obsessed uncle” and his eye-catching modified Royal Enfield Bullet, adorned with golden accents that add a touch of swag to the iconic motorcycle.
Shared on the Instagram page of royal_bullet_5577, dedicated to this particular Bullet, the video showcases the proud uncle riding his golden creation. Rather than completely coating the motorcycle in gold, the original black color has been retained. However, the owner has skillfully replaced certain chrome parts with brass-plated trims, lending a golden shine to various elements. These include the turn indicators, headlamp cover, number plate, and upper portion of the front fork cover, all finished in this distinctive shade.
One notable modification is the aftermarket LED headlight with Daytime Running Light (DRL), which may feature a yellow color to mimic gold. The footrests, clutch and lever, and odometer have also been given a golden treatment. Adding a unique touch, the handlebar proudly displays a miniature figurine of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, a revered historical figure in India.
Upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that the side cover, kickstarter, and crash guard have all received the same golden finish. Even the silencer appears to be a custom-made unit, perfectly complementing the bike’s overall aesthetic. The uncle riding the motorcycle has embraced the golden theme, sporting gold rings, a bracelet, and a watch that harmonize with his beloved ride.
This gold obsession is not an isolated occurrence. Indian enthusiasts have been increasingly demonstrating their fondness for golden modifications. Car owners have been seen wrapping their vehicles in golden-colored wraps to stand out from the crowd. For instance, Sunny Waghchure, known as the “Gold Man,” hailing from Pimpri-Chinchwad near Pune, Maharashtra, possesses a collection of cars wrapped in gold. Similarly, businessman Boby Chemannur from Kerala owns a golden-wrapped Rolls Royce, which he even utilizes as a taxi.
The Indian passion for personalization and showcasing unique styles knows no bounds. The “gold-obsessed uncle” and his golden Bullet perfectly exemplify this trend, bringing an extra dose of swag to the streets. As enthusiasts continue to push boundaries, we can expect more striking and unconventional modifications to emerge, fueling the nation’s love affair with customized vehicles.
