“ENVY” it may seem like a strange name for a motorcycle, but considering that it is probably one of the best Harley Davidson Softail custom to date by Lord Drake Kustoms and one of the modified bikes that has attracted the most, its name makes sense.
A Harley Softail custom destined to compete in the Custom Bike Shows
This was the first transformed motorcycle that Lord Drake Kustoms performed in his Harley workshop in Malaga to present it at a Custom Bike Show.
“Finally, after several very hard months and many hours of work, I have become a project that has been around in my head since 2013; when I finished the famous Harley Dyna Cafe Racer Red Baron in my custom workshop in Miami”, tells us Fran Manen (owner of LDK).
“With this motorcycle, we wanted a transformed Harley that was different from what Harley workshops do in Spain. A custom motorcycle with a vintage and racing style and above all a tribute to the famous Boardtracker motorcycles, but with current airs. And I think the resulting mix has been up to the task… at least it’s something totally different.”
The infinite details of the“ Envy ”
The colin, the tank, the handlebars, the numbers, the front mask, the front fender or the front grille; These are some of the pieces that have been made exclusively for this Harley Davidson Softail Fat Boy transformed on a whim.
Note that all wiring is internal (inside the handlebar, chassis, etc). In addition, it has been embellished the Twin Cam engine with a set of transparent covers. Leather details as in the case of the footrest, handlebars or the front mask itself. If you look closely, you will discover endless more details.
It is not a Cafe Racer motorcycle or a Bobber; It is a motorcycle with a Boardtracker air, a mixture of Old School and Custom styles. The number “76” was very easy to choose …. the year of birth of Fran Manen’s couple.
Fran tells us: “Some friends and colleagues in the sector who have Cafe Racer workshops in Spain or other types of motorcycle transformation workshops outside the world of Harley Davidson, have asked me several times what style of Moto Custom is this. The truth is that some love it and others hate it.”
“Envy”, a winning Harley Davidson Softail custom.
In 2016, this motorcycle was in the 5th position worldwide (modified Harley category) in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building held in Germany.
In 2017 it was driven by Fran Manen at the top of the podium of the Custom Bike Show of the European HOG Rally of Lugano (Switzerland) to collect the prize of “European Champion” in the Harley Sportster category.
And in 2019, proclaimed again “Best Harley transformed from Europe” in the same event held in Portugal.
Remember! The “Envy” is bad, very bad, the “Envy” kills … Do not envy anything or anyone, just work hard and everything will come. Transform envy into inspiration and motivation, that’s the secret!
“Envy is the enemy of the luckiest”
