A TRANSFORMED JAPANESE
“Japanese also have the right to be transformed… I mean motorcycles!”. That was one of the phrases of Francisco Alí Manén (owner of LDK) when he saw the result of this customization work done on the base of a Yamaha Drag Star XVS 650.
Many people think that to have a nice bobber or custom bike you have to make them on a Harley base; but we forget about some models of Japanese custom bikes that have a softail type chassis very similar to the “big twin” family of the American brand and that if they work well can result in spectacular custom bikes at much more economical prices.
On this “Yamaha XVS Drag Star Bobber” the process has been the same as on other bobber bikes they have customized at Lord Drake Kustoms… Disassembly of the entire rear and front, fabrication of rear fender and bobber seat for Yamaha, along with matching license plate bracket and front fender.
Modification of suspensions, installation of tracker type handlebars, lighting and turn signals, modification of exhaust pipes with universal tails and anti-heat tape, mirrors, grips, seat upholstered in perforated leather with rhombuses, etc.
BLACK AND GOLD
Finally an impressive paint that combines matte black with gloss black and separated by lines in gold color throughout the bodywork. And gloss black powder coating for other structural elements such as rims, footrests, front forks, etc.
And once finished this “Yamaha XVS Drag Star Bobber”, we have proceeded to carry out the legalization of the reforms of a bobber bike like this one for the territory of Spain, in our department of homologations of transformed motorcycles.
