Roland Sands Technics Sporty Photo Gallery
The Technics inspired Sportster came to life after Andy Bell (left) and Roland Sands (right) concocted a way to echo the Panasonic brand.
Check out photos of an RSD modified Harley Sportster 883 in the Roland Sands Technics Sporty photo gallery.
Even though it was built to be comfortable for a rider under six-feet, Bell, at 6'1", still had a blast.
Roland Sands tries to build "fun, functional bikes that aren't over the top."
Clean lines with few distractions are just one feature of the Technics Sporty.
Sands added this Cafe-style tail, which will be available to purchacse for your own build from RSD soon.
The RSD Carbon Slant 2-Into-1 exhaust pipe looks pretty sharp...
Sands wanted to show different a Sportster could look without an excess of modifications...just add some bolt-on parts and you're ready to roll.
"It was really based on the subtle black and silver color pallet and gloss/textured finishes," said Sands about how he remained true to Panasonic's Technics brand when building the bike.
Though it might not look like there's much there, this bike kicks when you twist the throttle.
