RE 500 Cafe Chopper
Zeena - A ground up custom based on an RE 500cc UCE. Front suspensions & rear mono-shocks are Endurance. The top tree plate has been milled out of Duralumin. The chassis is hand fabricated on a jig which sports a double down tube with a single backbone. Engine is coupled with one off TNT trademark engine fittings. Fuel tank is stretched out from our trademark “shunya” tank shape sporting a cafe class look and so is the front scoop. The bodywork is also accessorised with a SS mesh element which houses rear mono-shock top fitting. The front rubber is a 120mm wide 21 inch Avon coupled with a 240mm wide 18 inch Avon. A mono-bearing housing has been engineered for secondary drive. A duplex chain pulls the massive 240 tyre with 80 spoked clock-anti-clock rim assembly.
A custom swing arm has been fabricated out to carry the rear tyre, all designed, milled and welded in 19 man days in-house. The rear cowl sports a hidden pillion seat assembly; the orange plate detaches making room for a seat to be bolted on. All foot and hand controls have been turned and knurled in house. The engine head has been shaved and ECU Fuel Injection has been converted to 32 point carburettor intake boosting the power enabling it achieve speeds beyond 135 kmph despite a secondary drive and a massive 240 rear tyre. Zeena stances like a cafe racer when you see it approaching and looks like a sports bike from the rear when it passes you by, we call it a Cafe-Chopper.
