Within the presentation of the record export figures in the province in the previous months, Patricia Navarro highlighted the good work that Lord Drake Kustoms has been doing in recent years, exporting motorbikes to the five continents. Being a reference, according to the delegate, not only in Vélez-Málaga, but also in the province, community, country and worldwide.

“He has become a reference in this sector, where he started by leaving everything behind and going to America in search of his dream. A born entrepreneur and now a great businessman who carries the name of Malaga and Andalusia all over the world. And with his work and activity he is doing his bit for the province’s export figures, where the leading sector is usually the agri-food sector”, said the government delegate.

In the world of custom motorcycles, Lord Drake Kustoms is a brand that has always stood out for its unique style and attention to detail. In 2022 our company has released some seriously impressive bikes that we are excited to share with you all.

So, once the year is over, we are going to review the 21 best custom motorcycles that LDK has manufactured throughout all of this 2022.


First on our list is the Sportster Bobber Army. This has been one of the bikes that our fans liked the most this year. It is a motorcycle that came directly from a Harley dealer to our customization workshop. The base model was a 2021 Sportster 48 Forty Eight and we have turned it into a nice Bobber with a “retro” feel, in the style of the old military Harleys used in the war.

This DUCATI S4R “NEORACER” is not the first motorcycle of the Italian brand that Lord Drake Kustoms has customized in his motorcycle transformation workshop in Spain, although it is one of the most striking modification jobs on a Ducati motorcycle that he has done so far.

This BMW R18 “BOBBER STEEL” has been the first R18 that we have modified but not the last because we have already worked on customizing two other motorcycles of the same model from the German brand.



This Yamaha Scrambler is the third XT 600 that Lord Drake Kustoms has recently transformed in Spain and this time they have achieved an authentic scrambler motorcycle with a mythical base with the Yamaha XT 600 from the late 90s.

VROD 330

The used base used for this 330 VROD was a 2014 Harley Davidson Nightrod Special.

This new converted BMW R “BRASS” has a mix of scrambler, bobber and cafe racer motorcycle styles. The base model is a BMW R45 and stands out for having its own identity that is given by the combination of colors used and by the combination of motorcycle transformation styles it represents: Cafe Racer for its clip-on handlebars, Scrambler for its knobby tires and Bobber for its your seat and back.

This Sportster Bobber has been carefully modified from start to finish. A shorter handcrafted front fender, bobber rear fender for Harley Sportster fitted to the wheel with highly detailed handcrafted brackets have been installed.

BMW “BABYBLUE” is the name we have given to this mix of BMW cafe racer and scrambler customized. The motorcycle transformed in this case has been a BMW R100 that mixes components from very different custom motorcycle styles, such as the cafe racer and the scrambler.

The base transformed motorcycle has been a Sportster Iron 883. As for the style of customization of a bike like this, basically we can say that it is a cafe racer motorcycle modified on a Harley Sportster.

Lord Drake Kustoms received this BMW R18 from its owner, to be a completely modified motorcycle. But with one condition; and it is that it had to maintain the original black color, with white lines and chrome components.

This custom motorcyclecame to us from the North of Spain and its owner wanted an authentic Harley Davidson bobber, but with more spectacular looking and size rims… and above all he wanted to keep the colors and graphics of the original Sportster penaut gas tank. The base model is a 2002 Harley Davidson Sportster that we have done a real Bobber bike modification job on.

The BMW SURVIVOR broke the mold when it was presented to the public and proof of this is that several units of the limited edition have already been sold in just 8 months. But we realized that the motorcycle is very successful but it is a cafe racer motorcycle for a very small audience due to its exclusivity and high cost; It is also a custom bike more for a museum than to ride with it. For this reason, we decided to release a cheaper version and, above all, more versatile and for the street… that’s where the new BMW R SPORT EDITION was born.


Lord Drake Kustoms received this previously customized Sportster 1200 in an artisanal and very precarious way from a Madrid client. Its owner wanted to keep the original rims and engine chrome and also wanted the bike to be green. The rest was basically left to Lord Drake Kustoms.

This BMW K100 “M SCRAMBLER” has been dressed in the colors of the “M” edition of the cars of the German brand. Its owner wanted it to be a scrambler-style motorcycle but as low as possible, with country tires and above all the seat had to be red and the fuel tank in the colors of BMW M.

For this VROD Black Widow , a Harley Vrod Street has been used as a base,a custom model of the American brand that is somewhat different from the rest of the first Vrods and that was also characterized by being taller and having intermediate foot controls and by having a nice inverted hairpin.

Lord Drake Kustoms was commissioned by a client who already had this 2011 Harley Fat Boy and who wanted to give it a touch of an exclusive and transformed motorcycle but with a very important premise… it had to keep the two seats and be as comfortable as possible for the rider. passenger.

Lord Drake Kustoms does not usually say “NO” and this time we have shown it with the customization of this Victory Hammer 8 Ball that his client was about to sell because he thought that it could not be modified or transformed into something more attractive.


This Sportster bobber has been customized on a 2007 Harley Davidson Sportster Low that had been in an accident. Its owner wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to repair the damage and keep it original; turn it into a single-seater bobber bike.

The exact model that we have used for this bobber style motorcycle modification has been the new Harley Softail Standard of the year 2020. A powerful beast from the American motorcycle brand with a Milwaukee-Eight engine and a displacement of 1750 cc… in addition to the new chassis with a damping system different from that of the classic softail models.

On this occasion, we have achieved a brutal, strong and tough looking BMW Scrambler. All this, despite the fact that the R1150R models and their little sister the R850R, are perhaps somewhat complicated motorcycles to use as a basis for a good motorcycle transformation, (due to their fuel tank and front suspension system).

This Virago Ave Fenix has undergone a radical customization to become a beautiful bobber bike that has risen from the ashes in the cafe racer workshop of Lord Drake Kustoms in Spain.
