The fifth edition of the India Bike Week has a lot in store for enthusiasts. Big names like Triumph Motorcycles, BMW Motorrad, and Harley Davidson will be showcasing their new and unique products. Avantura Choppers will also be there with their 2000cc Rudra and Pravega. While IBW has been a hotbed for custom bike builders to display their creations, the one to look out for would be the Rag & Bone Customs stall. In particular, their custom bikes dubbed the ‘Dream Machine’. It will be an opportunity to see the Carberry 1000cc V-twin motor made by fusing together two Royal Enfield 500cc singles up close. You will also get to check out the Carberry Double Barrel Motorcycle.

Rag & Bone Customs came about when Stuart Cantellow decided to build a Royal Enfield custom based on a hardtail chassis for himself. He roped in a reluctant bike builder Paul Smith for his decade-worth experience in building custom bikes. Five months later, they came up with not one but two custom bikes. The Goa-based chop shop has won recognition among the tightly knit custom bike scene in India and has had a presence in previous IBW events as well. This year they decided to swap the Royal Enfield single for a unique motor. It's a good thing that Carberry set shop in India allowing them access to the 1000cc Carberry V-twin Motor.

For this year, their custom bike, the Dream Machine, is a pared down, minimalistic creation. The old school grunge look comes courtesy steel and brass fittings. Most of the parts on the bike like the footpegs, palm grips and seat edge use brass- a unique touch. The fuel tank too gets a weathered finish with a lone golden pinstripe running across the sides. The focal point of the design seems to be the large V-twin with its old-school architecture. The Hard tail frame seems to barely accommodate the motor.
