Federal Moto X Royal Enfield Grand Trunk Express

Federal Moto X Royal Enfield Grand Trunk Express

The last time we checked in with the people at Federal Moto they were building a badass beach tracker based on a 1978 Yamaha SR500. Now they’ve partnered up with the one and only Royal Enfield to turn a 2014 Royal Enfield Continental GT—already a gorgeous cafe racer in its own right—into something familiar but altogether unique. In the matter of a month, the brothers at Federal Moto stripped down the Continental GT to a bare frame, fabricated pieces to connect a mono shock in the rear, fitted a new leather seat with embedded LEF taillight, swapped in a Honda CB360 fuel tank, refinished the engine, converted it to a performance carb system, murdered out the exhaust, and fiddled with the electrics and, well, just about everything else. Once they completed those six months of work in a fraction of the time, the motorcycle got a new paint scheme that’s a nod to one of India’s railway lines and the name of the bike—the Grand Trunk Express.
