The Sportster Bobber Vivir is a Harley Davidson XL883R customized with the air of a custom motorcycle with bobber style modifications and whose work we have carried out in our motorcycle transformation workshop in Spain.


Its name is due to the phrase “Living is Urgent”, which is a phrase that the owner of this Sportster 883 wanted Francisco Ali (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) to incorporate somewhere on this custom Harley.

Keeping the gas tank with its original graphics and color on this Sportster R was another requirement that the owner of this Harley Bobber asked Fran Manen (LDK).


The most striking change has been the custom big spoke wheels for Harley Davidson, including an increase in size at the rear where a 200 rear wheel has been installed on this Harley Sportster.

After cutting the subframe and converting a Sportster bobber like this to a single-seater, we have continued with the manufacture of the two metal fenders, license plate support with side arm for Sportster 883 and the replacement of the handlebar with turrets with built-in odometer of the brand.

Many of these parts and accessories for Harley Davidson have been purchased at the Customiza tu Moto company store.


The paint has kept the orange color of the Sportster R penaut tank (as well as the graphics) and the same color has been used on the keel. The rest is all in matte black with baked electrostatic powder paint applied by the Metal Colors company.
