LA-based custom bike builder and former 250GP racer Roland Sands is well known for custom and sportsbike-based one-offs alike.

Badly named customs: The Bull Original Sickster

Chris Newbigging, 20 October 2009 09:50

Bull Originals Inc. in Japan have made a neat job of kitting out this Harley-Davidson Sportster with Roland Sands’ line of parts – but then they named it the ‘Sickster’. Dodgy name aside, the 883 Sportster dodges chrome trinkets in favour of subtle colours neatly detailed with polished aluminium. There’s a 2-1 high level exhaust, RSD wheels, air-filter cover, sprocket ...

Chris Newbigging, 10 October 2009 15:30

Custom motorcycle parts don’t get much more ludicrous than the subwoofer-equipped swingarm on this Suzuki TL1000S!

Slammed and supercharged Harley

Chris Newbigging, 05 September 2009 09:00

ProCharger’s blown 122bhp Night Train has the go to match the show. Speed and low-rider style don’t usually go together, but ProCharger went and gave its slick custom 122bhp anyway. The ‘Dream Smasher’ is based around the chassis and engine of a 2007 Harley-Davidson Night Train. The 1573cc motor is standard internally – Harley’s heavyweight internals were deemed tough enough to ...

Chris Newbigging, 13 August 2009 16:17

French paint shop AD Koncept has transformed the dull-looking Fireblade in to a slick LCR Playboy Honda MotoGP replica.
