Ladakh Carrier in Mumbai for Royal Enfield Motorcycle?
As per search in Mumbai I find two shops selling Ladakh Carrier for Royal Enfield Motorcycle.
Spark Motion is one such shop at Grant Road (East) selling various products, accessories, spare-parts including ladakh carrier helpful for bikers specially travelers riding Royal Enfield Motorcycle Or you can also check Allibhai Premji Tyrewalla.
Both shop are near to each other. Spark Motion is at Bapty Road also known locally as Arab Gali, Grant Road (East), Mumbai.
If I remember correctly I purchased ladakh carrier for Rs. 1800.
But the questions was:
Where to make boxes for Ladakh Carrier?
Hard Motorcycle Luggage, Tank Bags, Saddle Bags are available for Royal Enfield motorcycle in the market but I was thinking of boxes with lock fitted inside Ladakh Carrier. I personally find it more safe and more spacious for keeping luggage in any weather or road condition during long journey.
I discussed above said with Spark Motion guy and he guided aÂ location where there are many fabricator shops specialized in making steel box, locker box etc. and the address:
KGN Fabricator, 299/4, Meher Bux Bldg., Lokhand Galli, P.B. Marg nearby Arab Gali, Grant Road (East), Mumbai.
Owner: Afzal Khan ( 0 – 9870368377 )
The fabricator guy understood the idea. After one week boxes with Godrej locks were ready. Rs. 1000 per box the cost and finishing I have to say was excellent. Till-date installed boxes are good in condition (rust-free) without any trouble and I have covered 20,000 plus km road journey.
But yes, to install boxes inside Ladakh carrier I have to do few things as below:
- Wield an extra iron plate horizontally on the outer side of Ladakh Carrier so that boxes are well packed inside Ladakh Carrier.
- A cycle rubber-tube was purchased and a black tape. Ladakh Carrier frame was covered with rubber-tube and on top of the rubber-tube black tape was rolled. This help reducing boxes sound during road journey.
Close to Spark Motion nearby Municipality Building is A2 Garage and Deva (mobile: 0 – 983367789) is excellent with wielding work. He wield an extra iron plate and made four holes at the bottom of boxes to fix each box inside the Ladakh Carrier with the help of nut and bolt. Finally all job was done and I have to say it was Quality work and helped a lot during long road journey as luggage was always safe and no worries when it was raining and boxes not heavy.
Note: Spark Motion is currently shifted to Sidhwa Building, Balaram Street, Grant Road (East), Mumbai
