Roland Sands KTM café racer

Published: 21 May 2010

It seems everything Roland Sands touches turns to gold, and this new KTM café racer project looks like being no exception.

Although still a work in progress, details are emerging from Sands HQ. Based on a KTM 530EXC, the plan is to ditch everything above the bodywork.

Clip-ons and dual-coloured KTM wheels have been added (the computer mock-up pictured here carries single-colour wheels), while the bodywork (including a tank cover) will be built from scratch.

The original tank is retained, to keep the centre of gravity low and retain the flickability of the donor bike. Looks like this one's going to be a beauty.
