CUSTOM REVOLUTION: Paul d’Orléans’ Petersen Museum Moto Masterpiece

Posted on May 8, 2018 by Andrew in Bobber, Café Racer, Classic, Event. No Comments

We’d call Paul d’Orléans a Renaissance man, but 14th Century Italy wouldn’t have enough vintage motorcycles, loafers and Hawaiian shirts to keep him happy. Instead, we’ll just call him a modern day moto legend…

BMW Concept Ninety – Roland Sands

When a bike manufacturer commissions a special edition bike to be built outside of their factory, they don’t just put their creation in the hands of any nuff nuff who can swing an angle grinder and crimp terminals together. As part of this new trend to work with outside customisers, Yamaha approached Wrenchmonkees, Triumph went to Icon, and now BMW has collaborated with Roland Sands to create a homage to the BMW R90S – the German marque’s bad ass bike of the 1970’s. Forty years after it’s launch, BMW & Roland Sands have reimagined the R90S in a modern vein, while still retaining such touches as the blended paint job, ducktail and bikini fairing the original bike was renowned for. The spirit of the original is retained, with some awesome new design ideas thrown into the mix, making it clear that BMW has chosen the right bike builder for the job.

RSD KTM Café Racer

Posted on June 16, 2010 by Scott in Café Racer, Scrambler. 10 comments

Roland Sands Design (RSD) recently posted these ‘almost finished’ pics of their latest creation on their site – the classic paint job is yet to be done. Turning a KTM 530 into a café racer might not be the most practical build, but I do love the look of it. The bike has the very distinctive RSD styling but the one thing I personaly don’t like is the left-over KTM plastic underneath the new gas tank.

No Regrets

This awesome piece of perfection is a 2006 150 horsepower Harley-Davidson modified by Roland Sands Designs (RSD). Roland Sands has built some amazing bikes over the years but this one is still one of our favourites. With it’s Ohlins suspension and racebike stance it has the perfect balance of looks and performance. It’s hard to believe that this bike was built in 10 days for Discovery Channel’s Biker Build Off. It ended up winning by beating master builder Jesse Rookes. Roland is renound for building bikes that perform as well as they look, and this is no exception. Roland also has a sweet website worth checking out for all the bikes he has built and others he is selling.
