2001 Roland Sands Designs "Pink Trash"
Frame no. 1HD1BJY341Y056866
Engine no. BJY1056866
Starting with a 2001 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy, Roland Sands Designs, the legendary Los Alamitos, California motorcycle custom shop, created the low-slung custom presented today as a showcase for what it and Performance Machines could do if given a blank check.

Powered by the Harley's original 88ci twin cam V-twin, it was completely rebuilt by the RSD team. A 45mm Mikuni flat side carburetor was fitted to provide the go juice, air was pushed through a custom RSD air cleaner and the resultant post-combustion mixture was ejected through Vance & Hines/RSD modified exhaust. Power was routed through a 5-speed gearbox connected by a Performance Machinery belt drive and PM hydraulic clutch. The massive meat shrouding the rear wheel was made possible by a Performance Machine Phatail kit.

With the forward motion sorted, lateral control was handled by a shortened Paughco Springer-style front end motivated by RSD Springer Clip-On Concept drag bars onto which were fitted Performance Machine controls, grips, and levers. The whole package was finished off with a lurid pink paint job by Chris Woods of Air Trix.

Originally named 'Vintage Plaid', the bike was discovered by the apparel company Candies who borrowed the machine for a marketing photo shoot with Britney Spears. While her figure sprawled across the bike made for some fetching images, her heels did a number on the rear fender, necessitating a high quality respray to bring them back to their original quality and a renaming as 'Pink Trash'.

A one of a kind machine, it will no doubt turn heads where ever it goes...and drop jaws even further when its Brtiney bedecked images are shown.
