    Default First Impressions: Vardenchi Customs

    Text: Vardenchi
    Photos: Sundeep Gajjar (Sunny)



    A small outfit that started out as a result of pure passion is now shaping up into a full fledged custom motorcycle manufacturing co. that is fulfilling other riders passions.

    At Vardenchi our philosophy is quality first. It may sound very clichťd but it is the fact. Back in the day when we had just begun I vowed to build to the most spectacular rides the country has ever seen, and along the way I have learnt the importance of many other factors that go into creating the perfect ride like comfort and ride appeal.

    Today all aspects of customization of the motorcycles is looked into and we hope to create a custom motorcycle that will be world renowned and put India on the map in one more field.

    The technical uniqueness of all Vardenchi motorcycles is the single sided pro-arms with integrated disc brakes and the belt drive. In terms of styling, the Vardenchiís are a perfect blend of very classic yet new age motorcycles.
    With a range of varied styling options a rider can actually lean towards his preference, be it classic or pro street, and the end product will still say Vardenchi.

    With the finest qualities of paint and chrome the finish of the motorcycles is supreme. With careful attention on ride appeal the motorcycles are just as thrilling to ride.

    Since the client is kept in very close interaction during the entire process of design and build this is eventually his Dream Motorcycle.

    Skeletor:

    Ordered by a famous celebrity in Mumbai, this is by far one of the craziest builds we have done. Took us 3 months to complete this ride and it was one hell of a time. We started on the base of a Vardenchi Classic with a two arm swinger in the back and a decent rake in the front end. What we did after was the nightmare. The skeleton actually has an inner skeleton made of metal wires and plates. This was then wrapped around with cloth for bulk. For the detail in the finish we had to cover the cloth with a layer of Plaster of paris. We then carefully carved out the details in the plaster of paris to get it to look very realistic. It Took hours and hours of creative labor to get us there. For a hard outer layer and to prevent any damage to the POP we then applied a coat of fibre glass hardening compound.

    This is what gave it the smooth bone like look. Again hours of grinding and and finishing were required to get the effect close to the real thing.
    The reference we were given was a pretty similar bike but when we looked at is closely it had no front suspension and no rear chain drive. So essentially it was a dummy. For us the challenge was to get skeletor to ride. So we put pivot points in the arms which come down along the forward suspension which allowed for movement during suspension. The final look during a run was so wild it looked like the skeletor was actually on the road, running!We gave the skeleton a final finish of a metal matte silver paint job.And he was ready to go.

    Iíve never got so many stares on a motorcycle before.



















    Stealth.











    This is one of my all time favorites. The stealth is such a perfect blend between a chopper and a street motorcycle it is unbelievable.

    With the reach in straight handle bar and the forward foot controls the motorcycle actually gears you for speed and control when required, and lets you sit back and cruise when your mood changes.

    The belt Drive gives it a smooth ride while the 500cc LB engine provides enough torque for a spirited ride.

    With a lot of cool design features like the split tank and dual halogen lamps itís a definite stunner.

    We wanted a rugged raw look and matte black was the most aggressive answer. It went so well with the overall styling sometimes even I canít stop just staring.

    Look forward for the 2009 stealth!

    The 'Skeletor' is by far THE most outrageous thing on two wheels out there! Pure art, and really a beautiful piece of work, any which way one looks at it. Stunning!

    Now the blokes at Vardenchi should plonk in the hitchcock big bore kit onto the CI500 mill and make a couple of big bruisers. Plenty of go to match show.
