The XT models are motorcycles that have begun to be customized for a few years and this time Lord Drake Kustoms has touched a 2001 Yamaha XT 600 E, coming from an Algeciras driving school and in a horrible state.
The client was very clear about what he wanted: scrambler with stud wheels, all black except the gas tank and inverted fork in silver.
From there, the rest of the work was in the hands of the motorcycle transformation team in Malaga, which has LDK and directed by Fran Manen (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) has shaped this fun scrambler based on the Yamaha XT.
The first thing that was done was to disassemble the motorcycle completely, then the chassis was modified and the inverted fork was adapted with a 19-inch wheel. In this model, several modifications have been made to the chassis in order to adapt the fuel tank without disturbing the oil filler cap that these motorcycles normally carry on the upper bar of the chassis.
Subsequently, the seat, the front fender, the air filter box and part of the exhaust manifold were manufactured. All this accompanied by a BMX type handlebar, a 5.75-inch headlight with a yellow lens and many other details such as intermittent fists.
To improve the front suspension, it was decided to replace the series shock absorber with a somewhat longer one with an air bottle.
Finally all the parts were sent to paint in gloss black or textured black powder, except the fuel tank that has been painted in a military green color similar to that used by the Spanish army in one of its vehicles.
This motorcycle has been transformed into the cafe racer and custom workshop that Lord Drake Kustoms has in Malaga; and in a few days you can see it rolling through the streets of Algeciras from its owner.
