This BMW R100 scrambler was born in Lord Drake Kustoms’ cafe racer and motorcycle customization workshop in Malaga; although its owner resides in Brazil.
The owner commissioned Fran (Owner of LDK) two units: a BMW R cafe racer and another BMW R scrambler with the air of a retro motorcycle.
To make the scrambler motorcycle, a 1978 BMW R100 RS has been used, which arrived at the LDK motorcycle transformation workshop in Spain, coming from a motorcycle collector from whom Fran Manen bought almost twenty motorcycles ago.
Transforming this BMW R100 Scrambler
The entire original subframe has been removed and the shock absorber grip has been modified and a new Hagon shock absorber has been replaced. Later, a support was made for the floating seat, as well as the seat itself, which has been hand-upholstered in brown poly leather.
The front fork of this transformed BMW R has been kept original, although it has been lowered in height and an off-road handlebar has been installed. The original rims have been fitted with new Continental TCK80 tires.
The BMW R fuel tank has been preserved, but has been restored and an interior treatment applied before being painted and finished with the Monza fuel cap.
Previously, Lord Drake Kustoms, had customized two motorcycles of this style and very similar, but with black and gray colors. So on this occasion Fran opted to use the British Racing Green color to use as a finish on this motorcycle transformed from start to finish.
All this work has been accompanied by a Motogadget Pro digital odometer, a new front headlight, front turn signals for Motogadget grips and led turn signals at the rear, are other details to highlight from all the endless modifications that this custom motorcycle has.
It is not the typical BMW cafe racer, it is a unique customized BMW in which no detail has been left behind… A brutal and elegant BMW scrambler at the same time.
This motorcycle has been approved in Spain, thanks to our own Homologation and ITV service for converted motorcycles, which we have at our custom motorcycle company.
