Royal Enfield Continental GT Cafe Racer 2

Royal Enfield has an interesting chapter in motorcycle history. But ever since the bike production and license went to India, it never really got a proper grip on the “western market”. And that’s a pitty, because I really love the big, punchy 500cc single engine. The Continental GT is a really cool modern cafe racer of its own, but the crew of OK Easy Shop from Bangkok, Thailand, went the extra mile (or two!) with this awesome build.

The stance looks perfect! A complete flat line from the front to rear with a beautiful custom (removable) seat and gas tank combo and rear light integrated into the frame. The front suspension was ditched and replaced with the front end of a GSX-R. The rear suspension also got a set of aftermarket, adjustable shocks/ The big headlight unit underlines the cafe racer in it. Beautiful laced wheels with some serious racing rubber wrapped around. I’m just trying to give some words on what I can see, but let’s just take a look for yourself:
