cool. i dont have a tool box there, i use a tube on the tt rack now. now to fab up a bracket for a fender pak in that spot.

[QUOTE=BygDaddee;22383117]Yes, tubes and gas cylinders, I just strap it to the rally raid toolbox, one day I am going to mount a bit bigger toolbox there with a better mount for the fender bag.

I think it's fabulous, but then, I love Cafe Racers anyway and always have. That bike is sweet!

Yeah, The forks are from a Duke and they've been lowered quite a bit. Notice how the 690 radiator rotated 90 degrees?

Here's more (a lot more) info on the Roland Sands 690:

http://www.rolandsands.com/wp/2013/0...d-690-cafemoto

Apparently there is a street "flat tracker" in the works also. Roland does very innovative and "finished" work. He has a marvelous sense of design.

Yeah. He has been my favorite builder for a long time. While most builders only have "form" and no function.. His bikes can actually kick butt. He used to race AMA road bikes and that shows in his designs.

I noticed the radiator and thought it looked cool but, didn't catch that it was the OEM rotated. That is slick. Wouldn't he have to relocate the cap to make it work properly?

Edit: Found a close up of the radiator.

That thing is choice, no doubt about it. Wonder who owns it now...? Cool choice for the basis of a bike for a street bike for sure...

The only thing that I don't like.. is the amount of fuel. The way the tank is, it probably only holds 1 gallon or so. Don't ever ride past a gas station!
