American customizer's first fairing-added custom Harley

We’ve covered a bunch of American motorcycle customizer Roland Sands work before, including output like his Harley Davidson Café Sportster, and the Retro Custom 500 Helmets he made for Bell. His latest bike, the ‘Race-ster’, is notable because it’s the first time Sands is building a Harley with a fairing on it. The Race-ster lives up to its name via its 90-horsepower engine that’s been fitted with a Revolution Performance 1250 kit with Screaming Eagle .536 cams. Otherwise, despite its somewhat eye-catching design, the Race-ster is fairly simple to build. “We tried to think ‘bolt-on’ when building this bike rather than chopping it all up. Technically speaking, this is a stock bike that could be built in anyone’s garage with a regular old set of tools,” explains Sands. The erstwhile Sportster also features a Vance & Hines header, prototype rear-set foot controls, a unique mini-megaphone muffler, trussed swingarm and various gold-plated components throughout to give the bike a clean aesthetic continuity.
