The transformation and motorcycle customization in Spain that Lord Drake Kustoms has carried out in his cafe racer workshop in Malaga in recent years, have a remarkable characteristic: they are all of different styles and brands.
More and more custom bikes are coming directly from the Harley Davidson dealer to Lord Drake Kustoms’ workshop to receive a brutal modification or transformation for a cafe racer,bobber and even scrambler style.
The market is changing and Harley motorcycle owners are no longer satisfied with owning a Harley Davidson; now they want something more, they want a custom and unique Harley.
Each of these bikes, coming directly from the Harley Davidson dealer, adopt styles that can range from the most classic custom or chopper motorcycle to the most recent trends such as baggers…. And for the most daring, cafe raceror even scrambler modifications.
For all this, many lovers of the legendary American motorcycle brand, as soon as they buy their new motorcycle at an Official Harley Davidson Dealer, decide to bring it to some of our Harley customization workshops in Spain (Malaga)or the United States (Miami).
Especially in Miami, we do not stop collecting motorcycles at the Harley Davidon Peterson’s dealership or atAlligator Alley Harley in Sunrise; all of them from the Harley Davidson touring range (especially Road Glide and Street Glide models) to undergo a Bagger transformation.
However, in Europe, the new motorcycles that come to us from Harley Davidson dealers such as Siebla Málaga (Spain) or Capital Brussels (Belgium) are usually from the Sportster range, customers are looking for more cafe racer or bobber transformations and on rare occasions a scrambler.
This is mainly due to the fact that the culture of transformation and customization of motorcycles in Spain or other European countries is totally different from the American one.
In the end, it doesn’t matter if it’s a Harley Davidson cafe racer, a Sportster Bobber or a Road Glide Bagger… what matters is that they want unique custom bikes and for that they entrust their new bikes to Lord Drake Kustoms.
In this post you are going to know some of the Triumph modified and transformed by Lord Drake Kustoms in Spain and Miami. As there are many jobs we have done with these motorcycles, we have chosen only 5 models, all of them customized with Triumph BonnevilleT100 bases.
Triumphs modified by Lord Drake Kustoms
The first is a Triumph transformation made for a client who lives very close to Alicante (Spain). The name of this custom motorcycleis “MARDANIS” and it is the third custom bike in this series made with a 2007 Triumph Bonneville base and scrambler style with brat airs.
The second is a modification of the Triumph cafe racer made for Tom Kaulitz (guitarist of the world famous group Tokio Hotel). This motorcycle was transformed in our custom workshop in Miami and currently you could see this custom motorcycle in Hollywood or on other streets of Los Angeles (USA)where its famous owner temporarily resides.
The third is a beautiful Triumph Brat transformation made in our customization workshop in Spain, with many elements of a Triumph scrambler modification. Its owner (a girl from Madrid) is a lover of cafe racer motorcycles and it was very clear that a Bonneville was going to be hers.
And finally, we are left with the very elegant and classic style Triumph cafe racerwith Brat tints for an English customer. All black and small details in gold have made this modified Triumph one of our favorite works made with Bonneville T100.

The transformation of Triumphcafe racermotorcycles is growing little by little, especially in countries like Spain. And at Lord Drake Kustoms, our favorite is the Triumph Bonneville, because for us it is one of the best bikes to customize.
To a Triumph Bonneville you can make a cafe racer, brat modification or go to the extreme and make a scrambler or flat track motorcycle transformation.
Fran Manen, owner of LDK, began by transforming Triumph motorcycles in Miami(where he currently has one of his cafe racer workshops) since many of his clients there are great lovers of the English brand’s motorcycles. However, in Spain the modification of Triumph has cost more work and it was not until a couple of years ago that it really began to be in great demand.
The transformation of Triumph into a cafe racerin Spain and the rest of the world is mainly possible, thanks to the Bonneville model, which due to its geometry and its chassis allows for customizations of motorcycles of almost all styles.
The customization workshops and the customers who love custom bikes themselves have gradually discovered the potential of the Triumph Bonneville when it comes to obtaining an authentic cafe racer motorcycle.
Thanks to the Bonneville, customizing a Cafe Racerstyle motorcycle in Spain is somewhat easier (compared to the BMW cafe racerfor example), since this motorcycle is easy to find in the second-hand motorcycle marketand they are also in a been very good and at very competitive prices.
In this post you will see some of the transformations and modifications ofTriumph Bonnevillethat Lord Drake Kustoms has carried out in Spain and the United Statesfor customers around the world; and you can see that it is a motorcycle that lends itself to almost everything.
The transformation and modification of BMW motorcyclesdoes not stop growing around the world, but sometimes achieving the cafer racer of your dreams with a BMW motorcycle of the R or even K series, begins to be more and more difficult due to the shortage of motorcycles BMW in good condition.
The amount of work in the modification of BMW cafe racer motorcycles carried out by motorcycle transformation workshops and even individuals has led to the second-hand market for these motorcycles becoming scarcer, expensive and of poorer quality.

This allows us to provide a specialized workshop service for BMW motorcycles, as well as cafe racer or scrambler modifications and transformations. And of course all this with their respective mechanical and cosmetic guarantees.

It is difficult to choose between the best BMW cafe racer customized by Lord Drake Kustoms; because the transformation and modification of BMW motorcycles in Spain that we have carried out in the last 5 years is very wide and varied.
The BMW cafe racer modification has many variants, starting with the bases to be used which can be BMW of the K series or BMW of the R Series. In our BMW preparation workshop in Spain we have carried out customization work on BMWR100 models. r80, r65, r45, r100r, r80r, r1100s, r1150, r850r and r1200s; and of course BMW K100 and K75.

In 2013, Lord Drake Kustoms opened a new cafe racer workshop in Malaga (his second headquarters, after the one he has in Miami); And this meant that Spanish and European customers could more easily access the modifications and cafe racer bikes that LDK used to make with BMW bases since its inception in the United States.
The increase in orders for cafe racer motorcycles was so great after the opening of the motorcycle customization workshop in Spain (and especially BMW and Triumph modifications), that we are currently preparing the opening in Madrid, of what will be our third transformation workshop of BMW motorcycles (along with that of Miami and Malaga).
