How this Harley Davidson Sportster Bobber 883 has been customized

The rear height of the motorcycle has been lowered by placing burly dampers 10-inch and a single spring-type seat for Harley is placed. 

A LED headlight accompanied by turn signals and also a rear light of Led´s are responsible for the lighting set of the motorcycle. The rear and front fenders have been manufactured and modified by hand. 

And of course the entire motorcycle has been completely revised in our specialized workshop in Harley Davidson. For any custom workshop, in the works of transformation of Harley or any other motorcycle, it is very important the finish and the details. 

And as for finishes; One of the main features of this motorcycle, is that it is completely black, its owner, asked us that absolutely everything was in black.

Vrod Oliver

Vrod Oliver

Lord Drake Kustoms had transformed several Harley V Rod types at his Miami facility. But here, in our Harley workshop in Malaga, this was the first VRod Harley Davidson that we modified.

Vrod Oliver

In search for a Harley Davidson workshop

This V Rod was brought to us by a client named Oliver; Airplane pilot and resident of the Costa del Sol. Oliver followed us through social networks for a few years. 

When he bought his Harley and decided to transform it into a real VRod custom, he set out to look for specialized workshops on motorcycle and Harley transformation throughout Spain. 

Until he finally discovered that Lord Drake Kustoms, in addition to his motorcycle workshop in Miami, also had another Harley workshop in Malaga.

Oliver contacted Fran Manen (owner of LDK) and went to visit his custom motorcycle workshop. After the visit to the workshop, the deal was closed and Lord Drake Kustoms was responsible for the collection and transport of the motorcycle from the client’s house to its facilities.

The modification process of the VRod Harley Davidson

The motorcycle was a 2004 VRod Harley, with normal tires. One of the things that the client wanted was to put a tire and a 240-wheel rear kit. 

In addition, some custom wheels for Harley were installed, accompanied by the pulley and custom disc brakes to match. The rear fender, the air filter cover and many other pieces were handmade.

On this occasion, an exhaust pipe for Harley Davidson was not purchased from the catalog. It was decided to modify the original Harley manifolds and adapt some universal exhaust tails, widely used in Cafe Racer motorcycles.

Step by step, this VRod Harley custom motorcycle was completed; but once the work of transforming the motorcycle was finished, the paint and the final finish details were missing. 

Painting and airbrushing motorcycle is a field that very few customers value. But in this case, the owner of this transformed Harley VRod, wanted to wear a good airbrush job on the tank and the rear fender.

Sportster 48 Bobber, a custom motorcycle by Lord Drake Kustoms

A customer looking for a Harley Davidson workshop

Steven, the owner of this custom motorcycle, was looking for a specialized Harley Davidson workshop near Almuñecar (Spain), which is the city where he currently resides.

But the only thing he found in the area were the typical motorcycle workshop of all time and none of them specialized in Harley Davidson.

Finally, he decided to broaden his search and found a workshop specialized in motorcycle transformation in Malaga, our workshop, the workshop of Lord Drake Kustoms. Steven called us and came to introduce us his motorcycle, in this case a Harley Davidson Sportster Forty Eight.

At first, the owner of this Harley Sportster, doubted to turn this motorcycle into a Cafe Racer or a Bobber style. Finally he decided to transform his Harley into a motorcycle more Custom or Bobber.

The customization process of the Sportster 48

One of its conditions was that the rear should stand out for the presence of a wide tire. A wide wheel for the Sportster, which could be 240 or 200.

Finally, a 200 wheel was chosen not to be too exaggerated. Another request was that he didn’t want any kind of graphics or airbrushing on the motorcycle: “I wanted everything black, except the Harley gas tank that has to be in pure metal.

Tailor-made Harley exhaust pipes painted with ceramic coat, handmade fenders, Rough Crafts air filter, led headlight, custom fuel tank, and many other details; They shaped this personalized Sportster with Old School style.

SEVENTY

SEVENTY

“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. 

Lancia 037

Delta S4

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.

SPEEDSTER

SPEEDSTER

Speedster”, is a Sportster Cafe Racer tribute to Porsche that has been runner-up in the world (modified Harley category) in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building 2018. And thanks to it, the workshop motorcycle transformation of Lord Drake Kustoms it has positioned itself among the best Harley workshops in Malaga and the rest of Spain.

Speedster by Lord Drake Kustoms

The words of Ferry Clot that inspired this Sportster Cafe Racer

Behind this motorcycle there is a story that the owner of LDK, Fran Manen, will never forget. Fran was preparing since 2018 a custom motorcycle to compete in the AMD World Championship held in October. In the month of July of that year, the Lord Drake Kustoms team assumed (much to their dismay) that it was impossible to finish the project on time and decided to cancel their assistance.

Suddenly, one day at the end of August, Fran Manen received a call from his friend Ferry that would change the course of this whole story.

Ferry Clot founder of Hot Dreams and pioneer of motorcycle transformation in Spain; He called to ask Fran if he was going to Germany at the World Custom Bike Show

in October. Ferry needed someone to take his motorcycle to compete and he could not attend because he was sick. Fran asked him what was wrong with him, and Ferry replied that he was fighting cancer. 

The owner of LDK, stunned by this news, replied to Ferry that he would not attend the championship because he no longer had time to finish his project. Ferry’s response was: “NO, try to go anyway, you’ve been there once and you’ve seen how important it’s to be there. If you cannot finish that project you wanted, take one of the transformed Harley you have already finished, detail it, improve it what you can and go, even to make a presence”.

Francisco Alí posa junto a Speedster

Fran went on to say that it was impossible, that he had already lost the illusion and that there was only a little more than a month left. So he didn’t want to think about the championship that year or its custom Harley. However, from that conversation, Fran did not stop thinking about the words of Ferry Clot.

Three days later, after much reflection and not sleeping, everything changed. Fran Manen arrived at his Harley customization workshop in Malaga, and informed his team that they were going to the championship. He would use a Harley Davidson Sportster Cafe Racer that they were building for a customer and that was about to end. 

Fran called the client and asked if he could take the motorcycle to the Customization World Championship, although changes in colors, finishes and details should be made for this. 

The motorcycle owner told him “Go ahead”. And there began a trip against the clock that, in less than a month, made Lord Drake Kustoms go from not attending the Championship to become the Runner-Up in the world of transformation of Harley.

The transformation process of the Harley Sportster 883

The idea was to turn this Sportster 883 Cafe Racer, almost finished, into a project that Fran had in his head for some time: a motorcycle tribute to the car brand Porsche (hence its name “Speedster” in honor of one of the mythical models of the German brand).

For this, the work of transformation of this motorcycle had to have a sporty, aggressive and elegant result. It has to be a Porsche motorcycle, it has to remind a 911 Carrera, a Speedster or a 917 model of the 24 hours of Le Mans.

A good job of painting and airbrushing on custom motorcycles like this one is absolutely necessary to obtain the great keys. And of course, details, many details, such as the Porsche emblems, the rear pilots, the craft tail, the wooden grips combined with chrome, sports gas cap and a very long list of exclusive components.

This Harley Davidson Sportster 883 R from 2007 converted to Cafe Racer and built in our motorcycle workshop in Malaga, was in 2nd place worldwide (modified Harley category) in the AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building held in Germany in 2018. 

Speedster at his stand

From here, we want to thank and share part of this triumph with our friend Ferry Clot. Wherever he is, he is surely customizing something. Thanks Ferry!
