MAGIC BULLET. Bandit9?s ?Merlin? Royal Enfield Bobber






Written by Andrew Jones
Let’s not beat around the bush; Bandit9?s critics have been many and varied. They called out the shop by insisting that all their bikes were nothing but Photoshop renders. They questioned their creativity and even suggested they stole ideas. Such is often the fate of those who choose to rock the boat. But for shop owner Daryl Villanueva, none of this really mattered. Like anybody with an honest-to-goodness mission in life, he knew where he was going and what he was doing. And hey presto, the Petersen Automotive Museum, The Haas Moto Museum and the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum have all agreed by opening their wallets. Here’s his latest piece of magic – a Royal Enfield Classic Chrome Bullet he calls ?Merlin?.

?It was an interesting year for Bandit9,? says Daryl with more than a little understatement. ?We were fortunate to be part of the Custom Revolution exhibit at the Petersen Museum in LA. Then we got a call from Royal Enfield to work on a couple of projects with them. I really consider us quite blessed. I?ll take some time during the holidays to reflect on where we?re going. We?re tackling apparel in 2019; We still need to crack that. Maybe I won?t get a holiday after all.?
It’s amazing what you can do with Photoshop these days…
The inspiration behind Merlin was a little unusual; a luxury timepiece. ?We wanted to create a very complex piece hidden behind a simple, familiar and legible form. While the face of a watch is beautiful, to connoisseurs, it?s the movement inside – the way it?s made and its heritage that they appreciate. We wanted to approach Merlin in a similar fashion. We wanted to make sure it?s something you could pass on, hence its simple, timeless format.?
Besides an incredibly ambitious timeframe of 3 months, Dazza says that the hardest part was the design itself. ?I thought the Bullet was perfect. I love it the way it is and I told the gentlemen at Royal Enfield that I actually did not want to touch it. So I had two choices: don?t touch it at all or completely revamp the motorcycle. Thankfully, they gave us the freedom to do our thing.?

With a limited timeframe, the team had to pick their battles; changing the proportions was really important to how they saw the finished product, so the frame was re-designed to a hardtail with a nice swoop at the bottom. ?We just let the teardrop tank and exhaust follow the frame to keep the lines of Merlin neat. We also cleared the rear to keep the visual mass of the bike in the center between two 21 inch wheels and created fenders that really hug the tires.?

?We spent the majority of our time with the small parts. The seat is from the underside of an old Vespa saddle with the springs attached to a frame. We had to resize and reshape it to complement the rest of the bike.? Like the exhibition (or glass) backs of expensive watches that expose the internal mechanism, they decided to do away with the leather cover and leav...
