BLACK IS BLACK
Lord Drake Kustoms
“This time it has been more a case of restoration than customization, since the bike was the year 2002 and only had rolled about 6,000 km and all in the first year.

They are small details that add to the game that offers the combination of pearl black, textured black powder and traces of gold, which result in a new, elegant and aggressive Bonneville …
And the fact is that black is always black.
