Harley-Davidson VROD 260 BG

This Harley V-Rod was built for motorsport legend Bertrand Gachot, the Formula 1 driver and winner of the 24 Hours of Lemans.

IN 1991, in the middle of the Formula 1 season, Bertrand Gachot had a problem that prevented him from continuing to race and the team needed a replacement immediately for the next race, the Belgian Grand Prix… and that was when an unknown young man, who had not yet raced in Formula 1, was given the job… and it was Michael Schumacher… the rest is Formula 1 history.

The VROD 260 BG was built for Bertrand Gachot by Lord Drake Kustoms in Vélez Málaga (Spain). Its elegant green colour with matt black gives it a somewhat different look from the usual V-Rods of this style.

A 260 rear wheel has been installed along with an air suspension and a custom rear fender. A handmade license plate holder and a minimalist passenger seat have also been manufactured, accompanied by the driver’s seat upholstered in micro-perforated leather with double stitching made with green thread.

Lord Drake Kustoms has also modified the exhaust system and an air-box cover has been installed along with a custom made spoiler. Other details to highlight are the handlebars with Roland Sands Design risers, the LED turn signals, mirrors, etc.

Now the VROD 260 BG rolls through the streets in the hands of Bertrand Gachot, a pilot who is surely not afraid of speed, nor of curves, much less riding an elegant two-wheeled beast like this totally-transformed Harley-Davidson V-Rod.
