This is the new BMW K1 just finished in Lord Drake Kustoms motorcycle customization workshop in Málaga (Spain). It started as a project for a cafe racer motorcycle and ended up being a very sporty and racing BMW.
In their workshops in Miami (USA) and Malaga (Spain), Lord Drake Kustoms started making Harley-Davidsons, but over time, it has become a company that customizes all kinds of brands, and the most important is that they make them of any style, and proof of this is this BMW K1.
Fran Manen (owner of LDK), decided on this occasion to use a BMW K1 to do what he has been called one of the most impressive motorcycle transformations on a BMW K model .
It is not the typical converted BMW K100, it is a unique custom motorcycle transformed from start to finish; in which no detail has been left behind.
THE MODIFICATION PROCESS OF THIS BMW K1
The first idea was to make a BMW cafe racer, but 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, the semi-handlebars were installed and then the entire subframe was removed and part of the chassis was cut and modified to begin to shape what would be the new rear of this spectacular 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 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. that this custom bike has.
