Bumblebee Has Risen

Here is a 20+ year old Royal Enfield Standard 350 cc motorcycle, which was left to corrode and disintegrate for the past four years without any care, attention and shelter.

I’ve been watching it rot outside Bonny Sonny Motors in Mapusa for a while now and finally decided that I had to do something about it. On 9th May I adopted the motorcycle, christened it Bumblebee and drew up a restoration plan for it. The plan was to restore it to its original grace and beauty and find a home for it.

Three months later the restoration is complete and Bumblebee is ready to take his rightful place on the road.

    Bloody good on you Deelip! She’s a beauty. Is Bumblebee a chick?

    • Bumblebee is a guy. All the way. And now I have another problem. My boys don’t want me to sell him. 🙂

        Well, looking at how well he cleaned up, I’m not surprised.
