“MARDANIS“, The Wolf King … and his BMW Cafe Racer with Scrambler wheels, just finished in the Lord Drake Kustoms motorcycle customization workshop. A strange mixture is reminiscent of a Cafe Racer motorcycle with Scrambler wheels and very sporty at the same time.
The Wolf King
Sexual debauchery, Christian dresses, eating habits that included alcohol consumption … Mohamed Ibn Mardanis (nicknamed the Wolf King of Murcia) became famous on both sides of the border for his lifestyle and if he had reigned in these times he would probably have ridden this BMW R1200S just finished by Lord Drake Kustoms.
Fran Manen (owner of LDK), received a call from Fernando Cuello in which he commented that they had recommended Lord Drake Kustoms as a suitable company to make his dream come true: A BMW Cafe Racer brutal and unique.
At a later meeting, they finalized the project and finally it was decided to use as a base a BMW R1200S from 2007. Fernando’s indications to Fran Manen to make the motorcycle were clear and strict: matte black and orange, a brutal deposit, Cafe Racer style but with stud wheels and as simple as possible.
Creating the BMW Cafe Racer “Mardanis”
Work began and halfway through the almost finished tank, Francisco noticed that it was too large to paint everything in matt black and that some graphics should be added in orange. He called Fernando to explain and hence the idea of putting a name: “MARDANIS“.
Fernando knew that this custom motorcycle wasn’t very normal in the motorcycle transformation workshops. He was so excited about the project that he decided not to see the motorcycle until it was finished.
Finally, the big day arrived and “MARDANIS” would be presented to its owner for the first time. A group of friends and a spectacular party that would be held on the estate where the ruins of Mohamed Ibn Mardanis “The Wolf King” castle are located in Monteagudo (Murcia).
