A lover of vintage motorcycles, our own Akash Das also enjoys long rides and good motors, so he created something that combined the aesthetic of 1950s bikes with the technology of a contemporary engine: the Dodo Motorcycle. Starting from a Royal Enfield frame and engine, Akash, with the help of his friend Dixon Davies, designed and built this beauty.
Café racers. They stormed the streets in the 50s and left behind a trail that still lives in the minds of vintage motorcycle lovers. A Royal Enfield frame and 500cc twin spark with fuel injector, the Dodo motorcycle is first of three birds to come. Each a modern incarnation of a timeless classic.
Akash is the rider in the video; the camera and editing are by Pradeep Singh and the soundtrack by Daniel Berkowitz, who should bring his guitar to work more often.
