To close the year 2013, the owner of Lord Drake Kustoms in Miami (Fran Manen) decided to make a very simple motorcycle: a Sportster 883 R, his favorite Sportster model.
The Harley-Davidson Sportster 883R is Fran Manen’s favorite Sportster model. In this case it is a 2006 unit of Harley Davidson 883R that has been tried to modify keeping its original spirit as much as possible, but giving it a touch of elegance and distinction.
“This bike is designed for lovers of Sportster models, for those who want to have something different and original and not spend an exorbitant amount of money.”
Less is more! … that’s how Fran defines this modification work.
Somewhat tired of a year full of high level projects and difficulty, I wanted to enjoy some work before taking a break during last Christmas and come to Spain, his homeland, to enjoy the nougat. He wanted to do something simple and not too expensive, within reach of any pocket but eye-catching.
This bike is designed for lovers of Sportster models, for those who want to keep the spirit of the brand alive, have something different and original and not spend an exorbitant amount of money to have an exclusive bike.
If you like this bike or something similar, Lord Drake Kustoms has begun to create and market them in the facilities of the new branch in Spain, specifically in Malaga, in order to better serve the entire European market. They will have a stand at the Moto Madrid show from the 11th to the 13th of April, where you will be able to see their work. They offer a door-to-door motorcycle collection and delivery service throughout Europe for those customers who want to buy or modify their motorcycles with LDK… and depending on the type of work or purchase made, this service can be completely free for the customer.
You can contact LDK Spain on their website.
