BMW R BABYBLUE
BMW “BABYBLUE” is the name we have given to this mix of BMW cafe racer and scrambler customized in Lord Drake Kustoms‘ motorcycle transformation workshop in Spain (Málaga).
CAFE RACER OR SCRAMBLER?
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.
According to Fran Manen, owner of Lord Drake Kustoms in Spain and Miami (USA), he has details of a BMW cafe racer because of the type of seat and especially because of the handmade cafe racer tail for BMW R that we have manufactured in our facilities.
But nevertheless, the BMW “BABYBLUE” has details of a BMW scrambler motorcycle due to the Continental TKC 80 tires or the type and position of the Bitwell tracker handlebar.
At the front, all the controls and buttons of this customized motorcycle have been changed for new ones with a more modern style, a motogadget odometer, has been installed an auxiliary headlight for BMW R, some rubber bellows, the front suspension has been lowered and a new handmade front fender has been installed.

Heat tape on the exhaust manifolds to which we have adapted some universal tails for BMW motorcycles, manufacturing a new subframe and a new two-seater seat with a handmade and totally removable tail to give it that more cafe racer touch.
As always, the sidearm license plate holder for BMW R100 has been manufactured by Lord Drake Kustoms and just like the fender, the tail, the seat or even the cafe racer subframe.
For this BMW “BABYBLUE” cafe racer scrambler, the paint has been in a matte finish and in a very very light blue tone that, depending on how the light hits it, is hardly appreciated, with two lines in graphite gray to decorate the fuel tank .
The rest of the bike has been painted in matt black with baked electrostatic powder paint that has been done in the Metal Colors company.
We have our own motorcycle transport company in Spain (a totally free service for our clients within the Peninsula) that allows us to deliver that beautiful BMW R BABYBLUE to its owner at his own door.
