• Customised by Roland Sands
• Special paint job by Chris Wood

Early in his life, Roland Sands was working for his father's company, Performance Machine, where he literally swept the floor while evolving in a racing atmosphere. This developed its passion for motorcycle and road racing which led him to learn as much as he could about motorcycles and how they work, so he could always fix problems with his own bikes when racing. He eventually became a professional motorcycle racer for about 8 years and managed to be the AMA 250 GP Champion in 1998, but unfortunately had to stop after too many injuries. Also, he managed to become Director of R&D at Performance Machine, where he made an appearance on Discovery Channel program, Biker Build-Off, which would develop his popularity among viewers and motorcycle community. Although his body was hurt, his passion was intact, so he decided to use all these experiences and to get into motorcycle building and branding. With audacious designs and well-engineered parts, Roland Sands participated to the development of the custom market and its attractivity among the rider's community.

Now partnering with some of the most important bike manufacturers, especially BMW and the recent release of the McKenna Custom, RSD is getting in a new dimension. Roland Sands has the same vision and passion for motorcycle, but he has always been able to adapt to what people wanted and expected, especially organizing more and more collaborations and events to promote motorcycle lifestyle.
Although working on any type of bike and any made, RSD developed an expertise for Harley Davidson customs, especially thanks to the development of well-designed parts. On top of the house-built bikes, Roland Sands wanted to make bike modifications easy with almost plug and play parts. To illustrate this, RSD reconverted their Full Metal Jacket bike into the Whitey.

Thanks to a new white glossy paint made by Chris Wood at Airtrix and a new motocross handlebar, RSD managed to give a completely different look to the bike. The custom notably features RSD Slam Wheels, Turbine air cleaner, tracker grips and footpegs and a 2 into 1 exhaust.

The bike was bought directly to RSD. It has been kept in a climate controlled environment and is in running condition.
