When asked about his inspiration then Chetan answered, “I was always mesmerized by the motorcycles. My fathers used to have one vintage Enfield but never let me ride that. I used to ride it secretely in the nights when everyone was sleeping. One day, I was caught by my mother and my dad came to know about it and surprisingly he gave me that motorcycle. It was my first Enfield. I am in love with motorcycles and I think that its the main reason why I have started this venture”.
