For those of you who follow us regularly, you already know that Francisco Alí Manén with his company Lord Drake Kustoms was the first motorcycle customizer to make a Harley for Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada. Such has been the success that we have repeated this year, this time with a colorful Vespa in the purest style of the famous fashion designer.

This calendar has been made by the photographer Álvaro Manén and it includes members of the association accompanied by Fran Manen and the Harley “Agathizada” (the first motorcycle Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada). It is not the first time that this custom motorcycle, unique in its category, has participated in an event against cancer. Last August it was presented by Fran Manen and Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada at a charity event in Marbella of the AECC (Spanish Association Against Cancer), surrounded by a multitude of personalities.

“BMW K100 RACER” the most urban Cafe Racer.

Perhaps, this BMW K100 it’s one of the least attractive models for Lord Drake Kustoms, when it comes to doing a work of customization; that is why it was a small challenge to make the final result aesthetically pleasing for both the client and the entire LDK team.

BMW K100 RACER

Currently the BMW K are one of the most demanded motorcycles to customize. Specifically, this model is a K100 from 1984 and arrived in excellent conditions at the mechanical and aesthetic level, so basically we didn’t have to worry much about updating the motorcycle mechanically, as is often the case with motorcycles of this type. He practically went into action and immediately began to disassemble it to see how something aesthetically beautiful and sporty and something Racing could be done.

Once naked, the first thing that Fran Manen (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) did was modify the front suspension to lower it and give it a more aggressive touch with the installation of semi-handlebars and an oval-type headlamp.

The entire rear part has been trimmed and modified to install a tailor-made tail, making the back part slightly raised. This position could be accentuated a little more thanks to the new air bottle damper, which is somewhat longer than the standard one.

The exhaust has become a 4: 1 with supertrapp tail, which has given it a very powerful sound.

Finally, the entire motorcycle was dismantled to paint the chassis, engine, tires and practically the rest of the pieces with black tones or a combination of red, gray and silver in the case of the tank and the rear tail.

All this was decorated with numerous details, among which stand out the flashers and led’s pilot, seat with hand-made upholstery, details on the rear wheel, speedometers and rev counter, license plate support, etc…
