Hi Everyone,

I consider myself blessed by the heavens above to have got myself a dream RX135. All thanks to RDD for this dream bike to fall into my hands

It all goes back to me loosing my RX135 in Feb 2011. After that i have been missing a 5 speed RX which is a highway star.

Recently i started looking out for a RX 5 speed and was surprised to hear prices of around 50k for a stock bike... I kept thinking to myself that in case i brought one of these, I would end up getting the new cdi, RDD Filter, bigger jets, barrels blessed by baba, , maybe a highend carb.... that would be another few months and then i would probably get a highway star RX.... ruing about missing my bike self pity etc etc... and then one fine day last month when it was close to the time for miracles, i hear from one of the members that a certain other member may part with his blessed 5 speed .... and a few phone calls and a few days later... the deal is done. The bike with all the goodies that i have just mentioned above and much much more was finally mine. Tons of goodies with the bike, another stock bore, another mischief bore a fun pipe, apache front disc setup, couple of spare rims and much much more...

Then comes the part of getting the bike out of its slumber for a few years and this is where i was amazed by the camaraderie .... Shuvo took so much care of so many many things it would fill pages on the amount of detail he took care off... from having rear sets removed to finding stock footrests on a sunday afternoon to taking out the carb and putting it back an umpteen number of times to the new fuel flow tap to.... the list goes on and one.... in his absence i sure would have spent atleast a month getting things done on the bike. Pradeep spent a lot of time listening to all of my thoughts and worries about the bike and he too put in final touches on the carb, he was always there for advice and guidance ... i suppose i spent a few hours on the phone with him through out this... then of course Ron... the day the bike came to my place, we realized that the rats had got the RDD Filter, within about 30 mins, Ron was there with the filter for the boys... he was very worried if we will mess up such a good setup after all these years... I as usual giving baba more to worry with my stupid ways with the bike and notorious past list of seizures, despite this finally yesterday, baba too felt the worst was over.

Finally after all the fussing over the bike and being told many many times "just ride it", i finally took the plunge last evening and wow, is she sweet :1syellow1: this is a bike which putters around in the lower rpm and after that she hits the power band and then keeps taunting me to go faster and faster... the amount of fun i have had in the past 50 km has made me more younger and thankful to the gods for surviving :hyper: ....

I can hardly Thank you all guys at Rddreams enough for helping me out with this dream bike... she still needs a proper service and i hope to keep her well and have tons of fun with her...

The only part about the bike for me which needs to change, is the sound which gives away the mischief. Presently this bike is on the stock 135 muffler despite that everyone who hears the bike, knows some mischief is arriving

Cheers

Congrats Baba, please change the exhaust pipe, can see dent near foot rest.
What about chamber on this beast.
Best would be making two complete setup for this bike, one stock(RDD terms of stock bike) and one fully blown setup with pipes, Flat slider etc.

Its nice to see that builds I did for customers 3-4 years ago. Are being kept in the family. And still going strong.
Getting any engine to last under mukunds hands is a challenge.
But I think even Muks is learning.

This is Ajits old RX. The one that put the fear of god into even a R1 owner. LOL.
On chambers. It will rip your arms off. Better start doing some pushups. You gona need the mussels just to hang on.
