Satanic Sportster Cafe Racer

A flat black paint job and a 666 painted on the rear fender tell you right away that this new custom from Roland Sands Design was not conceived for beach cruising.

Based on a Sporster XR 1200, the Cafe Racer stance was obtained by fabricating a new a custom aluminum tail section and belly-pan with an integrated oil tank. Sport performance comes from a front suspension using Ohlins forks equipped with radial brakes and a rear single sided swingarm moving on Ohlins shocks and using Ducati linkages. For details, Roland Sands is keeping faithful to the 1960s British counterculture group of the Ton-Up Boys by using a final chain drive, clip on bars…and crash sliders.

    Sweet as fuck!! Roland always does a nice job of blending the V-Twin engine with a sport bike chassis. Now I want to ride it.

    My only critic will be the seat. Looking good, but quite unsafe for fast accelration. Very small butt required.

    I have seen his work and it is only getting better. Not to say it was ever bad. I love what RSD has done with the Moto GP motors. KR-5 (Kenny Roberts) and the other one that was in the top 21 gifts magazine.

    Not usally to hot on Roland’s stuff, but I do like this one. Great job between Roland and the TEAM behind him.

    Very nice bike ruined by an outdated Harley motor. That motor is only good for making a lot of noise and nothing else. Why spend good money on a nice idea with the wrong motor.

    I like this one, I find he tend to over dress his stuff, this one shows restraint, and I like it.
