This Sportster Scrambler Flat Track is the first Harley transformed by Lord Drake Kustoms in tribute to the famous Evel Knievel. Although this motorcycle has been transformed into the Harley workshop in Malaga, it has gone to the roads of France.
A man from France contacted Fran Manen (owner of LDK) almost a year ago; Just out of the Sportster Scrambler “Soulbreaker”. The man was interested in that type of Scrambler motorcycle and the work of LDK.
Meanwhile, in Lord Drake Kustoms they tried to do something new. A Harley Scrambler or Flat Track type but with a motorcycle airbrush more striking. One day, Fran Manen was sketching several ideas and graphics to make a Sportster Scrambler tribute to Evel Knievel (to the great American legend).
An important detail is that, as in other works of LDK, in this transformed motorcycle the son of Fran (Álvaro Manén with only 9 years) was the main designer of all the painting and airbrush work on this motorcycle.
As always, he sent it to his contacts, clients and/or potential clients interested in the project he had just put on paper … and then the luck appeared … Michel (the famous French lord) saw the drawings and said: “That is the bike I want! the one you sent me in drawing, the tribute to Evel Knievel“.
As he said, the current owner of the motorcycle, got on a plane to fly from France to meet Fran Manen and his Custom and Harley workshop in Malaga. Of course, the details were finalized to begin the project that would be carried out on abase Sportster 1200 custom from 2005.
After the meeting and the meticulous study of the 3 paper sketches that were initially made, the final sketch that would have to become a reality was obtained. And that was what happened two months later: the new “Evel Knievel” motorcycle, a Scrambler motorcycle manufactured by Lord Drake Kustoms, was released.
