BMW R18 Bobber Steel

THIS BMW R18 was customised by Lord Drake Kustoms in Spain.

They first removed all the stock components from this brand new motorcycle. Once naked, they studied the possibilities, and basically the geometry of the chassis, and the type of fuel tank, etc, and it was clear that they couldn’t make a scrambler motorcycle… Can you imagine a modified BMW R18 with studded wheels and rolling on dirt tracks? 

“…who knows what we will see in the future,” said Francisco Ali Manén (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms).

But eventually they decided to build a ‘bobber’. Hence the name of BMW R18 Bobber Steel (and its fuel tank that they gave a raw metal finish).

Bobber style fenders were installed (both front and rear). Then they installed a tracker type handlebar, with new risers and Motogadget turn signals and mirrors on the grips.

The next thing was to manufacture a license plate support with side-arm for the LED indicators.

They manufactured the seat base and upholstered it with diamond stitching. 

They modified the original exhaust pipe and installed new tailpipes to give this magnificent custom bike the sound it deserves.

Other highlights include a radiator cover, adjustable Wunderlich levers, the unpainted finish (in pure metal) of the gasoline tank, and engine covers that they painted in matt black.
