made them cover the DISTANCE
but the PURSUIT stays
the LAST MILE
what it took
was the HUNGER of creation
PASSION for something unusual
the mind, the body, the soul
and all the forces in the universe came together
for the birth of
And the first project
Busy in their lives creating movies, handling huge projects and teams, earning for a fancy living was not enough to satisfy them and their thirst was not quenched by the professionalism of life. There was this unsaid wish and want to do something what was coming their way but had no clue about how to ignite it and it was hard to discuss as on what grounds and belief? So their wish was heard by someone, miles away and on one fine day they received a call from a friend in Chandigarh. The call, I believe was for their hidden desire and the dream they once dreamt.
Their fascination for motorcycles was not hidden from the world and the people around knew about their adventurous rides and their collection of motorcycles. So this friend called them to discuss about his motorcycle, Royal Enfield(1992 model). He was planning to get it customized without a clue of what he actually wants. Listening to this Saurabh jumped of his couch and asked his friend if he can trust him and allow him to work on his motorcycle. Saurabh, one who is always ready to step into situations with the courage and belief that he will make it and is determined about the fact that there is nothing which cannot be achieved with a SPARK of fury as he always say that “If it is to be, it is up to me”.
The promptness was never imagined and was a forgotten dream for Peter but without hesitation he accepted to be his partner on this project as he never stops himself in attempting things and believes in his evolution with his evolving skills. Both were experiencing the rush of anxiety secretly in their mind.
And this is how it started.
Prior to the arrival of the motorcycle, the task was to draft the design, design which swallows the reflection of the soul of the designer and the one who owns it. Later there were many changes that were being made on the engineering front as everything that is designed does actually fits into the design. Bike was brought the very next day and the dismantling begun. It went quite well as both of them are familiar with the inside-out of motorcycles.
It was just a machine, so raw so casual. It was not a motorcycle, it was a machine, engine with two wheels.
Every morning was different, every morning working in their garage was enticing, in fact that place itself has so much of inspiration and is hell interesting. Physically they might have got tired but mentally were always stimulated. Everyday arrived with a new challenge, new achievement and steps towards completion. Risking everyday and doing what you like is an art.
Risk it all!
The motorcycle was yet to be tuned to perfection. It was simple and that’s the beauty of it. The colour scheme and engine housing were something that were depicting the whole mood of the designer reminiscent of that time.
It was neat, precise and passionate.
