The Bike According to Roland: "The goal of this project was to build a great handling, super fast stock based Sportster with a super aggressive look. Built over a year or so, its original life was as a slightly pimped white sportster with wheels and some chrome. It was cute... I don't really like cute bikes all that much. I'd built a punk flattrack style sportster back in '97 and couldn't find it to buy it back so I wanted to build something like it, just crazier. We threw a bunch of cool race parts at it and gave it the rolling hardware to make it handle with the PM Revolution wheels that are ultra light and the super sticky Dunlop D 207's."
