Boys from Jalandhar Created A Large Cruiser From Old Vehicles’ Parts
– August 24, 2020
Young boys from Jalandhar created a cruiser named ‘Dracula S-800’. They completed this project in less than 50 days starting from July 01, 2020. They completed the project on August 08, 2020. They rented a workshop for thirty-five thousand rupees per month and worked on Dracula night and day. They began with arranging and transforming various parts from vehicles like Maruti 800, Bajaj Pulsar, Mahendra Bolero, KTM Duke 200, Tata Ace, Royal Enfield Classic, and Yamaha FZ. The two creators are of 20 and 18 years of age and are students at different universities. Davinder Singh and Harsimran Singh invested almost Rs. 2 Lakh in their Dracula project. The duo is confident that their cruiser can reach the top speed of 200-220 kms per hour. Unfortunately, heavy modification is banned in India and the creators may not be able to cruise on their bike anywhere they wish. But the project must have definitely given an experience of a lifetime to these two engineering college students.
