The Chop Shop

03 Apr

Now the interesting stuff, as you guys must have read we got the bike a “Bajaj Avenger” after decent amount of effort and drama.

Action Time!!!

To make it look cool we got a very cool retro looking visor added to it J also the same made us feel severely cool!!!

Post all this & going through multiple online sites and watching every possible Biker Build Off show on Youtube Mihir & I decided to get our bike accessorized… For the same we went through probably every online site like ebay, mouthshut, bikezdotcom, xkmphdotcom etc, though all of them had loads to offer but without touch and feel of the product we weren’t too sure about next steps.

Love Handles!!!

This is when we stumbled upon the Diagonalley for bikes the same happened accidently when one day I had gone to meet the bike dealer for my registration papers and while walking out of his shop I happened to see shops lined up in a lane selling bike accessories. Immediately I walked through the lane quickly browsed shops and told Mihir about the same, post 24 hours of contemplation we decided to go put our bike under the screwdriver.

Went to the lane with Mihir the next day evening and scouted the whole place (will be previewing “the diagonalley of bikes in articles to come) post visiting multiple stores and checking out accessories we zeroed in on “Jayesh Scooters” where in Mr. Jayesh Shah the owner showed us some sick products for the bike at a decently reasonable price.

At this point we were like kids in a candy store where in we went and bought –

Put your best foot forward...

1) Steel Chrome Handle Grips

2) Dragon Claw Side Stand

3) Front & Back Foot Rests

4) Saddle Bags

5) Chrome Covers for Indicator Lights

Paid Rs 5000/- for all of this which was a steal, Mr Jayesh Shah then got a mechanic to fix the bike up!!! 2 Mechanics Guddu & Azgar suddenly to my shock started opening the bike apart & quite brutally at which point Mr Shah assured me they know what they are doing and i shouldn’t worry J

Took 3 full hours though post that the bike looked totally awesome!!!

Black Beauty!!!
