Lord Drake Kustoms’ slicked-back aesthetic has just rolled out on some custom RSD wheel work for a build called the Sportster Bobber RSD – a bit of eye candy whose genres are literally in the name, and the influence shows.

For those of you not familiar with this custom shop, Francisco Alí Manén’s agenda typically revolves around jazzing up a Sportster Iron 883 base; we’ve seen ape-hanger charmers, rocker-happy café racers, and more than a few lightweight, stripped cruisin’ beauties.

Today, the palate turns to a blacked-out bike with a wealth of textures and a timeless bob-job.

Let’s dive in, shall we?

“Semi-handlebars, LED brights and double Santee LAF pipes complement the minimalist, matte black paint scheme against which is contrasted “Harley Davidson” in white lettering, the only other color being the red for some pop at the spark plugs.

The result is a low-slung, understated yet sophisticated brawler that wouldn’t look out of place in the next Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) – and Manén is deservedly proud of such a creation:

Sometimes a transformed motorcycle with a very visible and simple style can become a very spectacular customized motorcycle simply with a few details that differentiate from the rest. This is one of those cases, and it’s all thanks to the wheels and the elegance when it comes to combining all the parts in this “SPORTSTER BOBBER RSD” [build].”
