BMW R18 BOBBER BROWN
The “BOBBER BROWN” is the new BMW R18 customised by Lord Drake Kustoms in his workshop in Velez Malaga (Spain).
Francisco Alí Manén, owner of LDK, received this BMW R18 from its owner and directly from the BMW dealer.
A BOBBER WITH A BOXER ENGINE
The idea was for it to be a fully modified Bobber style bike, but with one condition… it had to keep the original black colour with white lines… and chrome components.
Called “BOBBER BROWN”, this BMW R18 is quite a beast (aesthetically speaking) as, except for the original fuel tank, components have been touched on almost every part of the bike to turn it into a bobber with a boxer engine.
The rear, consisting of a mudguard attached to the wheel with metal tube side supports, a side-arm number plate holder made by LDK that locates the plate just behind the wheel and minimalist 3-in-1 lights with built-in Kellerman indicators.
The brown diamond-finish single seat, which gives the bike its name, and the seat mount for BMW R18 are also handcrafted at Lord Drake Kustoms.

At the front, a small front mudguard with metal tube mountings like the rear, new handlebars, mirrors at the ends of the grips and finally Motogadget M-Blaze disc indicators.
BMW R18 exhaust tailpipes chrome plated and adapted at Lord Drake Kustoms and the paint of the two wings matching the original tank of this BMW Bobber… gloss black with the two lines or pinstriping in white.
