      Cool Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 being Kefi'ed......Passion for Ride = Joy Of Life!!

      Hi, after having detailed few cars since almost a month when we launched our detailing services in Delhi, we got a Thunderbird 500 in our hands. It was a wonderful experience detailing this bike and hence sharing it with you all!

      nice pics!!! and bike looking solid!

      the writing on the tank, did you mask it off or went over it?

      and what about the exhaust pipe, thats chrome or steel?

      would love to see a review from you on the 849X, would you consider doing one just on the machine please?

      Thanks a lot Sir! We did masked the emblems on the tank and hand polished it later. Exhaust was steel with chrome plating.
      I would love to review 849X on the basis of my personal experience and will post it very soon.
