“Seventy” is a custom Harley Davidson that in principle was going to be a Cafe Racer motorcycle (that was the idea of its owner David) and in the end it ended up being a Harley Davidson Scrambler with airs Flat track. The base bike was a Sportster XL 883 low.
From a Harley Cafe Racer to a Harley Scrambler with Flat Track brush strokes
This Harley Davidson Sportster 2005, we bought it in a motorcycle repair shop in Malaga from a friend of ours. So it came practically up to date and as new, without needing to do anything mechanically.
This Scrambler is the second motorcycle we make for this client in our Harley and custom workshop in Malaga. When David spoke with the owner of Lord Drake Kustoms (Fran Manen), he told him that he had the idea of getting a Sportster Cafe Racer to ride on the streets more comfortably than with his other Harley, (a Harley Davidson Softail Deuce customized also by LDK).
But due to the height of the client, they realized that a Cafe Racer was going to be a very uncomfortable one. They decided to do something with more height, like a Street Tracker or Scrambler motorcycle, so that its owner could circulate comfortably.
The inspiration in the Martini Racing Team of the late 70s
We decided to be inspired by the designs of the race cars and rallies of the 70s. “Martini” was one of the most famous sponsors at that time and gave his vehicles a particular stylish-look with its three-band color designs: blue, light blue and red.
Those designs survived in the memory of our client and in ours. So we decided to adapt them to this Harley Scrambler.
The transformation of this motorcycle was done in record time, since once the project started we came up with the idea of presenting it to the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building in 2018 . The registration was about to end, so it was time to run and spend hours without sleep to finish the job on time.
Modifications made to the original Harley Davidson Sportster
A were installed handmade flat fiber track colin, fuel tank and front fenders made of metal. Radio tires, installed Vance and Hines RSD trucker leaks For Sportster, K&N air filter, BMX type handlebar, etc.
And for the work of painting and airbrushing , graphics and colors were chosen that are reminiscent of those used by the “Martini” brand in many rally and competition cars.
This Harley Davidson Scrambler, built in our motorcycle workshop in Malaga, was in 6th position worldwide (modified Harley category) in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building held in Germany in 2018.
After the world championship, all the reforms were made with our legalized Homologation and ITV service of motorcycles transformed in Malaga. Once approved, it was delivered to its owner, who now enjoys rolling down the streets and roads of the Costa del Sol, uploaded on his new Harley Davidson Scrambler “Seventy”
