This time it was not a Harley, a BMW or a Triumph. It was a 1998 Yamaha Fazer, yes, a naked one from the late nineties; That was the motorcycle that Lord Drake Kustoms received from his client.
I want you to customize a motorcycle, which can be corporate and I want it to be with a 98 Yamana Fazer. ” This is what José (owner of Sixtino Design Labs) told Fran Manen of LDK.
“I loved the idea, Fran told us, and the challenge that the base was a motorcycle so little seen and those that do not use for the custom seen now, that they usually repeat the same model over and over again.”
The customer was clear that he wanted something scrambler, with taco wheels and the gas tank in matt green. From there Lord Drake Kustoms was free to choose the path he wanted.
How they did it
A job without many difficulties, which may seem simple, but that is very well done and with very special details such as the square headlight and the mask, which are those that give personality to the motorcycle and that have allowed us, in addition, flee from the boring monotony of the typical seven-inch round headlights or that of the round headlights with grid.
The rear turn signals, once the subframe was modified, were incorporated inside their tubes. The front and rear suspensions of the motorcycle were also modified to give a more stylized line to the entire project.
The military-type green tank, with the entire motorcycle in matt black, the brown seat and the detail of the light tinted in yellow has made this bike a very attractive combination that surprises everyone who sees it naturally and not through a photo, starting with its own creators who did not expect this result with a motorcycle like the Yamaha Fazer.
On the Sixtino Design Labs there is a phrase that says: “We are passionate about combining innovative ideas with designs that please the eyes.” This phrase has been the leitmotif of this project; It has been innovated using a motorcycle not very common until now in the world of customization and has been combined with a scrambler / street tracker-based design, which has resulted in a very striking and colorful motorcycle, according to the opinion of all those They have seen her.
The owner of LDK, has been so satisfied with this project that he has already begun to make another motorcycle with the same base (Fazer 98) but with some surprises and improvements that we will know shortly.
