BMW R100 CANDY RED
In this post we introduce you to the BMW R100 “CANDY RED”, a bmw bike customised at Lord Drake Kustoms, a cafe racer and motorbike workshop in Spain.
The base bike is a BMW R100 that has been completely restored mechanically and the rims have been replaced with those of a BMW R65.
Again, as usual on these custom BMW bikes, the entire original subframe has been removed and left single seater by fabricating a new subframe to support the black Biltwell diamond patterned BMW bobber hanging seat.
Other highlights include a Biltwell tracker handlebar with downward position, a Motogadget Mini odometer, LED indicators, BMW R number plate holder, auxiliary headlight and custom-made mudguards.

Of course, a pair of Continental TKC80 scrambler tyres complete the scrambler look of this BMW R and together with some Lord Drake Kustoms logos on the front suspension bottles, modified exhausts with black heat tape and minimalist tails or round cafe racer style mirrors on the handlebar ends give this BMW R the look it deserves as BMW R100 “CANDY RED”
The end result of the bobber scrambler style transformation on this custom bike has been spectacular; largely due to the candy red colour used on the fuel tank and front wing, which gives this custom bike its name… BMW R100 Candy Red!
On this BOBBER SCRAMBLER motorbike, Francisco Alí Manén (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) in addition to choosing the beautiful candy red colour for the bodywork, has used a combination of different shades of black applied with electrostatic powdercoating in the Metalcolors company.
Finally, our homologation department at Lord Drake Kustoms has been in charge of homologating the modifications made on a converted motorbike for the Spanish territory like this BMW BOBBER SCRAMBLER.
