Harley-Davidson Cross Bones Bobber

An authentic, elegant and classic bobber customised by Lord Drake Kustoms.

THE initial idea was to do this project on a Harley-Davidson Softail Heritage, but after several conversations between Fran Manen (owner of Lord Drake Kustoms) and the client, they came to the conclusion that if it was done on a Cross Bones model with its springer fork, the result would be more spectacular. So they looked at a totally original Harley-Davidson Cross Bones from 2009 as a base, and once it arrived at the Lord Drake Kustoms (LDK) workshop in Malaga (Spain), they got to work… because the idea of the design and the final result were very clear both on the part of the client such as Francisco Ali Manen.

All metal work has been done by hand at LDK. The two fenders were made of metal with the brake light integrated. Two perforated side supports were manufactured to house the turn signals and a side licence plate.

The entire subframe was modified to house the new rear fender and a bobber seat for Harley-Davidson Softail which was finished with spectacular handcrafted upholstery with leather matching the gas tank tie. Other elements have been added such as the handlebars, Vance & Hines Short Shots exhaust pipes, a Vity’s design air-filter, grips, indicators, etc.

But the most notable thing about this motorcycle is undoubtedly the paint job, which has combined British Racing Green with an aged marble effect. All of this separated by the original pinstriping of the Cross Bones model.

The end of all the work has resulted in one of the most elegant and beautiful bobber style motorcycles that have been made at LDK and that will surely leave many speechless when they see it passing by… Ladies and gentlemen… Enjoy the Harley-Davidson Cross Bones Bobber by Lord Drake Kustoms.
