1991 BMW K1 racer by Lord Drake Kustoms


The first idea of Lord Drake Kustoms was to make a BMW cafe racer, but quickly Fran Manen decided to change the concept and make something less seen and very radical. To do this, as soon as they arrived at their custom motorcycle workshop, the first thing they did was strip and completely disassemble this K1 that they had bought from a collector. Work began with the installation of an inverted fork, BMW spoke rims with road tires, discs and brake calipers. Afterwards, clip-on handlebars were installed and then the subframe was removed and part of the chassis was cut and modified to to shape what would be the new rear of this transformed BMW. The fuel tank, which is the same as that of the BMW K100 models, had to be modified a bit to achieve the radical line of the motorcycle. A new air bottle rear shock by WP was installed, the entire rear tail and seat were installed with custom upholstery. All this work has been accompanied by a Motogadget digital odometer, Motogadget motorcycle keyless M-Lock starting system and buttons from the same brand. Retarded foot controls for BMW K and a paint job inspired by BMW “M” series graphics. The modified and handmade exhaust with the Spark tail gives it a Moto GP sound, a V-Rod type headlight, front indicators for Motogadget grips and Kellerman indicators at the rear, are other details to highlight from all the endless modifications.
