|Royal Enfield chopper from Japan surprises your eye.|
That's certainly the case with this made-in-Japan custom Royal Enfield chopper — if you can assign it such a crude designation. I found it posted on the StreetRide blog. That's in Japanese, and it's a bit hard to draw much information from the Google translation.
It is clear, however, that the builder, Stoop Motorcycles in Toda City, appreciates the unique history of Royal Enfield. Enough of the original motorcycle is retained, from nacelle to neutral finder, to serve as an inspiration for what changes.

Impractical it might be but, as with Japanese art, not something I was likely to have thought of.
|A foot shift would have been too low, so...|
|Rims are painted white.|
|Tank halves apparently fill from both sides.|
