Roland Sands KTM 525 EXC

I just put this on my wish list
My B-day is the second of June... :)

Roland Sands
made this stunning KTM 525 EXC Cafe racer.

"Happiness comes in many forms and today it comes in the color of a beautiful ripe California grown tangerine. What started out as a rough build has been molded into something much more finished featuring 525cc’s of growling KTM fury. This is our next evolution of the Café Moto concept, an ever evolving project that shifts and changes with every bike we do. And yes, we made a real gas tank for this one. All the body work is hand-made aluminum, fabricated here at the RSD compound. FMF did a trick titanium exhaust for us and Chris Wood at Airtrix delivered the Candy Orange Flake paint on the tail, tank and headlight mount. This one is street legal, ultra-light and has just enough horsepower to get you in trouble. Forks and shock have been lowered considerably. We debated back and forth on the front fender then decided to keep it moto with chopped down fork guards. Sub frame has been heavily modified to accept the battery and electronics. She is only missing her license plate which should be on it’s way from the DMV. In the meanwhile we will try our hardest not to get arrested riding it."
