Episode 27 features a bike of such precedence that we are making another video about it. The SHL M11 that was imported to India in the early 60's to be stamped and sold as Rajdoots is the motorcycle in focus this week. We take a look at the bike from the point of view of its custodian, Saugat Mahapatra who is a lover of all things vintage.
