If a vampire became a motorcycle, it would almost certainly be in the BAT NIGHTROD; a Harley Davidson Night Rod customized by Lord Drake Kustoms in his Harley workshop in Miami.
In motorcycle companies dedicated to the custom bikes sector, it’s very normal to almost always work with the same line and style of custom motorcycles. In Lord Drake Kustoms, as seen once again, it’s not so. From a Bagger to a Cafe Racer or Scrambler motorcycle, from a Harley Vrod to a classic Japanese motorcycle… anything with two wheels is KUSTOMIZABLE!
An old Harley Night Rod in disrepair
This time, the chosen one was a Harley Davidson Vrod Nightrod of the year 2005 who was in a bad state. Its owner (a prestigious child surgeon, resident in Miami) wanted to return his Vrod to a more decent state and loved the color black … then the idea of “BAT” emerged: simple, elegant and striking.
At the same time the owner wanted to keep the essence of the machine, the bike had to look like a Vrod, but to another level! For Fran Manen (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms in Miami) was already clear and it was time to start working.
The process of customizing this Harley Night Rod
LDK, modified the original front fender and built a new cover for the air filter to embed the clocks. Also, he installed an original 240-wheel rear wheel kit and replaced the turrets to give a more comfortable ride. Finally, this two-wheeled vampire emerged … “BAT Nigthrod“
