A Royal Enfield restoration in just two minutes

Time-lapse video shows how they did it.
If you follow the market for Royal Enfield motorcycles you're probably aware that some fantastic looking "restorations" are coming out of India.

These motorcycles look vintage, yet brand new, with styling touches no factory in Redditch, England or Chennai, India ever dreamed.

The world is long past asking "how do they do it?" The impression is that India can do anything. But now, thanks to a time-lapse video on YouTube,  we can at least watch while they do it.

The video is "Royal Enfield Bullet Restoration Project." According to Adhiraj85, who posted it, "We put together a 1978 Royal Enfield Bullet. It took around 45 days. Thanks to time lapse, I can show you guys in two minutes."

All we know about YouTube's Adhiraj85 is that he is 26 and from India. Facebook suggests he may be Adhiraj Rajan Lokengaonkar, of Mumbai.

Nicely done. The motorcycle is very pretty, too. Check out the video.
