HD EVO 240
This Harley called HD “EVO 240” is what happens to a 1996 Evolution-powered Heritage Classic Softail when it arrives at Lord Drake Kustoms’ Harley Davidson custom workshop in Spain.
BASED ON A HERITAGE SOFTAIL
The base used for this project was a Harley Softail Heritage from the collection of the owner of Lord Drake Kustoms (Francisco Ali Manen) and that it was in collector’s condition and with only 7,500 kilometres, despite being from 1996… or in other words, a motor evolution practically new.
The HD “EVO 240” was completely dismantled, and only the engine, chassis and front suspension were used. The swingarm was removed and the subframe was cut… and from there the magic began to transform this classic into a bike with a totally modern, aggressive, sporty and of course custom bike style.
A teardrop-shaped fuel tank, a new swingarm to accommodate a 240 wheel, a rear wing that fits snugly to the wheel thanks to the legend Harley softail air suspension, a side-mounted number plate bracket and a new seat… all custom-built.
At the front, the entire fork has been restored and lowered and then powdercoated in black. A minimalist front mudguard and a spoiler or keel to cover the front of the engine have been produced. Plus new handlebars, Motogadget digital odometer and many other details.
Chrome billet wheels
Two stunning chrome Harley billet wheels (the rear with 240 and 18-inch diameter tyres and the front with 120 and 21-inch diameter tyres) and another radical touch on this bike are the two black exhausts and the impressive air filter with the same silhouette as the exhausts, but in chrome.
GRAPHITE GREY AND ORANGE
The paintwork is graphite grey with a central black stripe accompanied by two orange stripes, all with a matt finish. The seat is upholstered with black micro-perforated leather and double diamond stitching in orange.
AN EVOLUTION ENGINE
A full-fledged custom bike, customised by Lord Drake Kustoms and called HD “EVO 240” with its authentic Harley evolution 1340 carburettor engine, which is now cruising the streets, attracting the attention of all those who hear or see it as they pass by.
